I swapped my plugs and I noticed a my plugs were looking a little brown and the wells furthest from the transmission were filled with oil (gross).

A. What is the oil about? Still safe to drive?

B. Do my plugs look okay?

Your plugs are fine, good color on the porcelain. The oil is from the valve cover gasket or the o-rings leaking past. Reseal your valve cover and plug wells. Good time to inspect your cams and replace lift bolts now while the valve cover is off.

How many miles on the plugs? Can you take a close up of the tips? The gaps look big to me in the picture.
