Took pics of that, changed spark plugs, saved the old ones.. So wish me luck..

Thanks for everyone for getting me motivated to look at this again.

I know this is old, but to the OP:

If you found spark plugs No. 3 and 4 sitting in oil when you went to change them, then the dealer DID NOT perform an engine compression test and ripped you off for $500. If they had performed the compression tests they would have found the plugs bathed in oil like you did because the compression test is performed by attaching a pressure meter to the cylinder using the spark plug hole. If they try and say that they didn't find such a condition and it must have happened afterwards, that is total BS because the valve cover gaskets would not leak that much oil in such a short time period.

Get your money back.
