Engine Misfire Due to Oil in Spark Plug Tubes on Dodge Neon

Spark plug tube seals fail, causing the tubes to fill with engine oil and the engine to misfire. As a result, the engine may run poorly and fuel economy can suffer.

my car has been smoking bad for about a month going through 8 quarts of oil throughout the week. and i mean they would go empty the other day my car started shaking really really bad and at a red light would act like it wanted to stall . i change the valve gasket and the spark plugs but the spark plus valve seals we cant get out Any ideas how to get them out seems they are dry rotted . I took it to pep boys and they did the check engine light scan and said it was a misfire on #2 i was told a tune up would help anyone else fix the problem yet ? how'd you do it .
