Hello and welcome to Just Answer! I would be more than happy to assist you today.In most cases it is the valve guide seals leaking. You would have to remove the manifold to get a good look. Other times it is an over fueling injector allowing some fuel to escape the cylinder and mix with soot and look like oil. again remove the manifold to get a good look
