1992 SC
Wrench Fouling spark plugs

I have been working on my Saturn that I have neglected somewhat. It runs great and the gas mileage is pretty good (35). I changed the valve cover gasket since I was getting oil in the plug holes but the first time I didn't quite get it right. Anyway, I found a good How To article and followed it and believe that I have it now. The first time I did this I also changed the spark plugs since they were Bosch and the consensus seems to be that NGK are better and I tend to agree now. Anyway, that job didnt work and 2 the plugs were sitting in a little oil. The only reason I noticed is because the car stated to run a little bad again. My question after all this. What does it take to foul the spark plugs? I was under the impression that once they are somewhat soaked in oil or running too rich for some time the plugs are not preforming up to what they should\can. Im really waiting a little while to make sure the second fix does the trick before I replaced them if I need to. It seems to run alright but when first started it hesitates the first time through the gears and then is fine a minute later. Dont want to buy another set of plugs for the car unless I have to but its also for curiosity sake. I habe a 92 Saturn SC by the way.

They'll probably be fine if you clean them up and re-gap them.

Is there a good way to clean them besides just taking them out and wiping them down carefully?

I've used a wire brush before.
