This is actually a pretty serious problem it means the piston rings that keep the oil from entering the combustion chambers are failing and you end up getting oil in your air fuel mixture and burning some of it.

If the oil is on the top of the plug, you have a failed valve cover gasket. If it is on

the bottom, you have internal engine problems.

I have seen people put chain saw plugs in the oil fouled cylinders and it worked!

don't know what the long term effect is $#!+...?

Simple. There is a circular gasket for each spark plug between located between the valve cover and the engine. If they are not properly sealed, the oil from the top of engine will leak out of the valve cover and pool into the spark plug sockets. You must remove the oil BEFORE you remove the spark plugs. Anyway, the fix is purchase and install a new valve cover gasket and spark plug gaskets and use a gasket sealant.

What to do if one cylinder is not firing on a 1989 Honda civic si?

The first thing to do if one cylinder is not firing on a 1989 Honda Civic SI, is to disconnect the battery. Then remove the spark plug wire and the spark plug. Check to see that there is no oil on the plug and it has the right gap measurement. Then replace the spark plug and wire and try the engine again. If it is still misfiring, change the spark plug. If that does not fix the problem, have a compression check done for that cylinder.
