Spark plug 'tube seals'. Some gasket sets don't automatically come with them. Best to get a complete gasket set with the bolt/nut grommets too. Factory parts are best and I strongly suggest you clean everything with brake-clean extremely well and put the gasket on dry & do not over-torque.
Yes that will cause a misfire. Im thinking your plugs are in the middle of the valve cover. If so you need to replace valve cover gasket and do tune up.
I did a tune up on it. Made it a lil better. But still getting oil in spark plug. what causes the oil to get undre the spark plug?
The valve cover gasket is almost surely your problem. Only after I actually had it in front of me could I be more sure.
