Sounds like the alternator is done. I would get it checked out to start with. Electrical feedback from bad diodes can cause all kinds of weird troubles and codes.

the alt will starve the system and throw random codes, but oil on your plugs isnt a good thing, man go to a mechanic and have him give it a once over
