A few weeks ago I replaced the valve cover gasket on my 2009 Dodge Avenger and days later it started stalling out while I was driving it. I haven’t been able to drive it since then as it stalls out at most it would run for 60 seconds. Not being able to pinpoint the problem I replaced the crankshaft sensor, camshaft sensor, battery, alternator, and Variable valve timing solenoid. None of that seems to have helped because it won’t even start up and run at all anymore because it kills immediately. Somehow oil keeps getting into the spark plug wells. The battery light, oil light and red lightning bolt pop up on the dashboard which makes me believe it’s an electrical issue but if someone can help me out it would be much appreciated became I’m at a loss as to what the problem could be and how to fix it to get back on the road. Any knowledge that could be shared would be a HUGE help and thank you in advance!

2.4 motor??? If oil gets in the plug wells, you open the VC and see why. It's not good for ignition operation.
Otherwise did you research trouble codes from the computer BEFORE throwing in all those parts?? Each code will have diagnostic inspections to perform to "nail down" root cause problem. NOT followed you are wasting money and getting nowhere.

Bad coil pack, bad maf sensor, bad fuel pump relay.
One of these is your problem. If your getting oil down in your spark plug wells them im pretty sure it's your coil packs. Just like water oil doesn't get along with electricity.
