Default Oil in my spark plug hole

I went to change out my spark plugs and found oil in one of the spark plug holes. This is a 2 litre Saab 2003. Would just changing the valve cover gaskets take care of this or is there more to it. The oil came up about 1 1/2 inches on the coil pak boot. When I'm driving the car at speeds of around 60 and go to accelerate I have a intermintent miss. I check NAPA auto parts store and they say there is 2 gaskets that go on the valve cover. I just can't figure out why only one spark plug did it and not the others. Need help...thanks

Default Find the fix to the oil in spark plug?

HI Bob,
Did you find the answer to why there was oil in one of the spark plug holes? If so, can you help me and let me know how you fixed it?

I have an '02 9-5 Aero and witnessed this yesterday.

Thank you
