Default 2000 Galant running rough/cutting out

I have a 2000 Galant that has started to run rough and miss/cut out when you hit the gas and sometimes between gears. When I looked into the sleeve to take a look at the spark plugs there was a small amount of oil in a couple of the holes. It was only puddled up a tiny bit near the base of the plug. I was told that I need to replace the ignition coils, plugs, wires and valve cover gasket because the oil was shorting out the plugs? Does this sound right to anyone, would there be anything else that needs to be replaced? Also today the check engine light came on. Any thought on this?

I definitely recommend changing the valve gasket and seals for starters. plugs, coils and wires i dont think are required.

If u change the gasket, u need to go ahead and change the plugs and wires, the coils i wouldn't be so worried about.

I would be more worried about finding out what code its throwing. Go to autozone and have them run the code.
