you cant get enough oil in a cylender by just removing a glow plug to cause a problem....

My guess is either you accidently partially unplugged eitehr an injector or the under valve cover harness.....would be the most logical place to start

again...im gonna bet its an electrical issue causing an injector not to fire...get the valve covers back off and check for a partially disconnected injector or under valve cover connection
