Question Check this please

I pulled the fuel injection. This is what I found. Why is there oil in this area. This is the number 6 plug I believe. It has always been fouled. I pulled the motor cause it has over time started smoking. This is the only cylinder like this.

Most probably/definatly worn valve stem seals and worn valve guides, this is a common fault of the 3.2's I have just finnished rebulding mine after such issues, think its time for a top end job!

Can I just fix this one. All the rest are dry. The motor runs strong. It has 80,000 on it.

You can do but the rest are sure to follow so if you wanna drop your engine again in a few 1000 miles for the sake of a few $10 valve guides and stem seals and a bit of machine shop work then yes just repairing that one may solve your problems for the time being. Do a search there are many threads on the topic of worn 3.2 valve guides.
