The oil around the plug may be a sign that the valve-cover needs a new gasket. Oil on the plugs can cause a misfire but it is important that you check everything over. The misfire could be due to defective wires, boots, coils, spark-plug/s, injector/s, and so much more. Take a look at the cars maintenance history, Maybe it is over due for a complete tune-up or oil change. The car is 11years old, how many miles are on it? How was it running before this?

Pull Valve Covers and install new gaskets.
Clean up COP Ign Coils with oil on them
May as well put in new plugs while your in there.
Last--check for Codes when your done,to see if you have any bad coils.
Anti-Seize -on spark plugs,Guess you know that!

Misfire #7 cyd

Check the #7 spark plug and coil, also the fuel injector, make sure its clean and it's connections are good. An easy way to check the coil is to switch it out with another cylinder or buy one new and see if it makes the difference. The same for the spark plug, if neither one of these items makes the difference look to the injector.

Service engine soon light on; diagnostic code states: cylinder 7, Misfire

you need to have your engine tuned up, unless it's been done recently. misfire means it's not getting fire or fuel to #7 plug. you may have a plug wire bad or a bad spark plug on #7 if you go to effort of sending it to garage just to replace one plug or wire,you'll pay labor for whole tune up. wires,plugs, and maybe a bad coil pack. suggest you have tuned up with new plugs and wires. also while they are there, have them check fire to #7 plug on coil first before you do a complete tune up. thank you for choosing

Miss firing and /check engine light fregrently comes on

These have a lot of problems with ignition coils, so replace the spark plugs with the proper Motorcraft Spark plug, and a scanner will be needed to show which cylinders are misfiring, replace those coils. Make sure the misfiring cylinders when you take the coils out , that there isnt any water/coolant in the spark plug well.

1999 Town Car began running very rough - suddenly.

When cleaning your engine, water/degreaser went down the spark plug ports. Try using a air compressor blow gun to remove the moisture from around the spark plugs and boots. The water was causing the engine to misfire on 3 cylinders at first and as the ports started to evaporate the moisture, the less misfiring was occuring. Dry thouroughly and hopefully coils do not have damage to them. Also check to make sure the boot is making good contact with the spark plug.
