p reg 318is e36 coupe 1.9L

i am having problems with my 318is coupe
it is having problems with the idle
i start it up and its fine until the idle settles
temperature does not effect it as it does it when its warm or cold
but it idles very rough and even sounds like its misfiring
the car is faultless when under load just on idle
please any help would be grateful
i have already changed the spark plugs but found number 1 spark plug was covered in oil
so i am wondering if the rocker cover gasket is leaking oil onto the plug at idle and causing the problem
