Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
If the spark plug is oil fouling and or even coolant fouling it will cause the engine to misfire. You are going to need to determine if the moisture you are finding on the spark plug is oil or coolant. If its oil then suspect either a valve stem seal is leaking or you have bad rings on this cylinder. I would start with running a compression test as well as a leak down test on this cylinder.
