That is a sign that your vehicle was badly flooded with gas. I would first do a pressure test to make sure it's not a head gasket, then I'd drain the oil out and change it. I would look in the radiator to see if there is any oil in the water. This is also a sign of a bad head gasket.

Check if the plug leads are in good condition, there is only one plug oiling up.

For $6 you can buy a spark tester at any parts store to see if the wire is delivering spark to the plug.

Oil on a plug is usually a problem with piston rings or valve guides.

Gasoline on one plug is an injector problem.

Engine knock

Did this happen after changing spark plugs ?
Incorrect spark plugs can cause this.
Maybe the timings are wrong the gasoline is expoding before the piston reaches the upper position.

Put some fresh gasoline into the tank.
Charge (or replace) the battery.
Change the gasoline (not oil) filter.
Change the spark-plugs.
If it has a manual (not an automatic) transmission, push-start it.

Generally in a spark plug is 60000 kilometers, if fuel is bad need in early, remove the spark plug, such as for auburn or rust color, spark plug showed normal; Such as stained with oil, shows that the spark plug gap imbalance or too much oil, high tension line short circuit or open circuit; Such as black smoke, spark plug type cold wrong or mixture is thick, the oil is up; Such as the top between the electrode and sediment, when for the oily sediment, shows that the cylinder into the oil has nothing to do with the spark plug, when the black sediment, spark plug carbon deposition and bypass, when grey sediments, is a gasoline additive covered electrode lead to lack of fire; If serious erosion, such as the scar at the top, with black pattern, electrode melt, showed that the spark plug is damaged.

Gas in oil in engine

It does not take much oil to damage a car's engine. If it is just a little bit of oil in gasoline tank: As you drive over bumps the fuel pickup will take some oil & burn it along with the gasoline. If you have fuel injection, deposits may form on the fuel injectors which will need to be cleaned to avoid a poor idle or hard starting condition. Deposits may also form on the spark plug electrodes which will need to be cleaned and regapped or replaced if they use dual or quad ground electrodes.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is your recommendation for oil change for Acura TL 04...every 3,0000 or 5,0000 miles

You should change it at least every 3,000miles or every 3 months, whichever comes first. The more often you change your oil, the longer your engine will last.

New spark plugs gone out

If the odor is not heavy gasoline, then they appear to be oil fouled. The cheap fix is to buy at any auto parts store oil burning plugs or sleeves, these will keep the spark plugs slightly further out of the cylinder, out of the oils way, and should provide a reasonable resolution.

Check the PCV valve and hose, if they clog they will cause oil to enter engien cylinders. keep me posted
