Probably a bad/leaking spark plug tube seal in the valve cover. This also suggests high crankcase pressure, which may be due to bad piston rings. Are you burning oil?

Is there some engine oil on the end of #3 plug wire that pops up? If so, replace the valve cover seals for the plug tubes and the plug wires. Again, this may be a sign of high crankcase pressure caused by blow-by gas.
