its like I just started it up today and it is hesitating badly when I press the gas I think it is the spark plugs but I changed them a year ago no problems in neutral when I rev the engine just when I am driving I barely made it to work today

If you used platinum plugs they should be good, have you checked your fuel pressure and flow? A plugged fuel filter can cause what you are describing.

actually I found out a cylinder is misfiring and there is oil on one of the spark plugs


Run a compression test first, you may wind up having to pull the head to find the problem.
