Had valve cover gaskets leaking & sprayed the front of the engine off avoiding any wires. Now the car will start after a few tries, but will not stay running for long. It is running very roughly, I think on only two of the cylinders. It normally idles at @1100 rpm but is idling at 750 before it just dumps. The slightest load on the engine makes her shut off. Have checked fuses, spark plugs, & the engine has dried but it still won't stay running for long. Any idea what could be wrong? Please help!
