A very quick response... Make sure the plugs are factory spec (I believe either Bosch or NGK), DON'T put in anything else, whether platinum, gold, silver, uranium, or whatever. If there's oil in the spark plug wells, sop it up, and change the valve cover gasket. Sounds as if this car has been overdue for some other maintenance as well, but these suggestions are a start.

3050 is right, and when posting try to make sure you get it in the right category. You'll get better and faster responses. Let us know how it turns out.
