My car has 19000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

For the cylinder that has excessive oil in it, the oil is either coming in for the piston rings being worn or the valve guide is leaking on the intake valve causing the engine to consume the oil. If the engine has a cylinder with too much oil in it, it will cause the cylinder to have a misfire. I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you diagnose your engine for an internal oil leak.
