Cleaned up the oil & installed new plug ,but car still misfires with hard accelleration at about 4000 rpm.in 3rd gear.With reving in park or regular accell.it runs good.What could it be???
Car is an 06 3.0 with 86k.miles (car orig.from USA)
That sounds like you need to replace the valve gasket cover if your getting oil up in the plugs.

Throwing any codes? If so, list them
