Open the hood, look for the distributor, it will have 5 wires coming out of it, they will be about as thick as a pen, and most likely black. One wire goes to the coil, follow the other 4, they plug onto the 4 spark plugs. Let me know how you do. countrycurt0

Aloha We have just replaced all of what you have replaced, plus water pump, fuel pump, pcv valve and 02 sensor. Took it to mechanic today we had misfire on 1,2,6,7. Mechanic said that the 99 dodge is known for bad computers, he checked ours and works great turns out that it was the coil. Ours was jumping 1/4 inch and had a orange/yellow spark. it is supposed to have a 1 inch spark and be blue. This has solved our problems after 527 dollars later.
Check the coil!

The oil on the spark plug usually comes from the valve cover seal or the spark plug tube. The valve cover seals to the tube and the tube seals to the head. The tube is usually a tight fit in to the head with a little sealant. The tubes can be purchased at the chrysler dealer or possibly at a local parts store. As for the red fluid,it is automatic transmission fliud . It is used in the manual transmission as well as the power steering system. You could have an axle seal leak, transmission shifter seal leak, power steering seal leak, depending on which side of the vehicle is wet.

SOURCE: Valve Cover Gasket
the oil was the cause of the misfire, the oil swells the rubber on the plug boots and interferes with the electrical connection from the wire to the plug. when you replace the gasket, remover the plug wires, marking which one went where, and use a spray electrical cleaner to remove the oil. make sure the rubber on the new wires isn't already swelled. before removing the plugs or valve cover, spray brake cleaner down in the holes and use compressed air or shop rags to get the hole shiny clean before removing plugs. remove plugs and clean them too. then reinstall plugs and remove valve cover. when replacing any gasket, use a razor blade on to clean the surfaces well. you can even spray a shop rag with brake clean and wipe it to make sure its clean. clean is important. reinstall cover with new gasket in place and torque bolts... be careful not to overdo it, they are small bolts and overtightening can flatten out gasket and cause more leaks. then just reinstall plug wires and off you go
