so the other day i saw a ton of oil on the garage floor and i noticed oil in the 3rd and 4th spark plug, but i cleaned it out and replaced the valve cover gasket and the rings around the spark plugs. So i thought that was the issue, i guess not, and yes i torqued down the bolts and its not leaking through the valve cover. it seems to be coming from the driver side and its obviously getting on my belts because they are squeeking, any ideas?

Headgasket maybe the first thing depending when it was last replaced. Second thought would be the Cam Gear gaskets but if the spark plugs still oil on them I would think headgasket but you would be loosing pressure in the cylinder(s).

O wait you said #'s 3 and 4 but 3 and 4 cylinders are next to the transmission so more towards the middle of the engine. But it could still be the headgasket or rear main seal.

Cam seals? Have you deleted your bs? How is the hole in the front shaft plugged? Did you remember to put a bolt back into the bs tensioner pulley? Does your dip stick appear to be blown out of the tube a little? Oil on the hood insulation? Not really am answer.

Is the oil a line above the timing belt or is it a splash by the dip stick. Make sure your dip stick is fully seated and go for a drive. If its moved up at all afterwards replace your pcv with an oem one.
