Q: Cylinder #1 not firing. on 2000 Ford Escort

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Code says #1 cylinder not firing change plugs, wires and throttle position sensor but when I remove #1 oil was all over threads and point gap. Car hard to start runs rough and sometimes cut off when idling and coming to a stop.

you valve cover gasket needs to be replace, the oil is preventing the spark plug from firing you have to change the valve cover gasket or you can clean it with brake cleaner but it will happen again.
Thank you for the very quick response. That seems to be the answer I'm getting hope that's the problem and fixes it.
