I have a 2002 kia spectra that if you disconnect the throttle control sensor and the idol air control valve the car will run but if you reconnect it will crank and stall the diagnostics say that the mass air flow sensor and 3 of the cylinders are misfiring what can cause this and how can it be fixed is there anything that can fix a oil seal leak in behind the timing belt

Best you get a code reader and clear all codes, do a re start and drive and re scan report the codes here, only way to fix that leak is to replace the seal, stop leaks will do more damage than good all they do is swell the seal and not just the leaky seal, all engine seals will swell and start to leak after a while as they get soft and loose there tension.
