Time for a compression test. Mark the spark plug wires so that you'll know where to put them back. Pull all plugs, screw in a compression gauge and have an assistant crank the engine with the accellerator full open. Let the engine crank until you hear the compression hit the gauge at least 3 times, then stop and look at the pressure reading on the gauge. Record the reading for each gauge. If one or more gauge is significantly below the others, you probably have a burned exhaust valve, the most common cause of low compression in one cylinder.

If the spark plugs have oil on them do they need to be replaced?

First things first. What year, make, model, engine, and mileage? When were the spark plugs last replaced? Short answer: Yes. They should be replaced as part of the major engine overhaul your car needs. There should never be any oil on the spark plugs. A little carbon buildup, perhaps, but no oil. That indicates a serious engine proble such as worn out piston rings, worn out valves and guides, or a worn out turbocharger seal.

Engine misses at higher RPMs its a 1993 town and country?

Generally speaking, when an engine "misses" (fails to fire on all cylinders,) there is a failure in the ignition system. Since most factory ignition systems lose power at higher RPMs, flaws in the wiring or spark plugs will become aparent. Given the age of your car, replcement of the plugs and wires will probably solve the problem. Note: If you note excessive dirt or grease on the spark plugs when you remove them, the problem may be minor oil leak in the engine. If these are not fixed, the problem will return when the new plugs foul up.

What makes the engine plugs wires carb valves set the only thing i have not replaced is distributor car and rotor?

When you replaced the plugs, did you check the compression? Did any of the plugs look different than the others? Low compression in one cylinder can cause misfiring. But then, so can a faulty distributor cap.

Are freeze plugs important to replace?

Freeze plugs are located on the sides of the engine block to allow for the expansion of the coolant if it should freeze. Without them the engine block could crack. They do not normally have to be replaced unless they begin to leak from corrosion or external damage.

You can replace all of them BUT the 2 in the rear of the engine block with out pulling the engine. To remove the rear ones you can either pull the transmission are remove the engine your choice.
