No Start/Stalling Issues Due to Internal Distributor Fault on Dodge Avenger

Sensor failure inside the distributor can cause intermittent stalling or a failure to start. In addition, the wires to the distributor are susceptible to internal damage, which can cause the same symptoms.

Car is not starting. Sounds like it is flooded. Nothing is fixed yet. I'm being told nothing is wrong.
