might need a TuneUp, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, oil change, or could be idle air flow control valve .

no answer, think I have similar issue. have you isolated which cylinder? I can unplug #2 coil pack and no change. pull plug and its soaked. which I believe you can wash the oil away from wall and that's bad to continue to drive.
