Engine Performance problem V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles

i recently changed the plugs in my 2000 f150 w/ 5.4 triton. It had developed a miss. When I pulled the plugs, all wells had some amount of oil in them. #2 were pretty full. Ran great for about 2 weeks and miss is back? Don't know if oil is already back in holes yet. I know I need to change the boots as they were swelled from the oil. My question is how is the oil getting in the wells? Engine seems pretty dry on the outside. Thanks larry

On this truck when this happens it means the spark plug is bad leaking a small amount for compression and oil which accumulates in the plug wheel. Change the spark plugs and it will go away. Here is a video to show you how.
