WATER IN ONE OF THE CYLINDER COMB

2000 Mitsubishi Adventure

Engine Performance problem
2000 Mitsubishi Adventure 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 19,444 miles

I observed the engine has small vibration and reduced power. I removed one by one of the spark plug and on cylinder no.3 upon taking out the spark plug cable found a water inside then when taken out the spark plug found wet combustion chamber, the tip of the spark plug is dirty and wet.
I cleaned all the spark plugs and put it back, start the engine and oberved the vibration of the engine lessened. I drove the car and after a mile running again observed back to previous problem observed.

I will appreciate for your comments and help to solve my car's problem.
