1997 Honda Odyssey. Was driving fine then started bucking and losing power like it was out of gas and could barely get out of traffic. Engine light came on. Code for #1 misfire and another code for any # misfire. Jerks and shakes but will start and run the rest the way home. #1 misfire code and any # misfire code. Shakes horribly, NOT smoking at all, no oil leaking on ground, oil in all 4 spark plug wire plugs (dripping oil from wires)but it will start and run and drive (rough and horribly though)

If the spark plug connectors were flooded with oil, you have a very serious oil leak somewhere.

Have the fuel pressure tested.

Ziggy/David, if you're unable to locate the source of the oil leak, go to a parts store and buy a small bottle of oil system leak detector dye and either rent or borrow a black light. Pour the dye in where you put oil in. Run the engine for about 10 minutes and turn the black light on. You will see a yellowish-green or orange glow where the light hits the detection dye. Then fix the problem. You'll need to replace your plug wires once the leak is fixed.
