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.
