1999 Dodge stratus shutting down

My problem.
I have a 99 dodge stratus 2.5l 115,000miles 3 weeks ago it shut down on me while i was driving so i took it to a garage and they told me what they found.
1. valve cover gaskets leaking into the spark plug tubes
2. bad timing belt
so i replaced all belts, water pump, plugs, wires, cap, pcv valve.
after all that it still shuts down on me at least 2 times in my 11 mile trip to and from work.
so i replaced the fuel pump and filter. and nothing has changed any suggestions. i am about out of ideas and money at this point......

    Every couple of weeks my 99 stratus just dies. It starts back up but I never know when it will do it. The computer does not show anything and we cannot get it to do it when we want it to. The mechanic is at a loss. It doess not cough or sputter, just dies.
