Most times replacing those parts should fix this problem. The fact it didn't means it's probably in the wiring. Unfortunately there's no easy way to test it. What you'll probably end up having to do is replace the wiring from the VSS to the ECU.

I surely hope you misspoke there and meant Valve Cover Gasket.
Any oil leaking from the oil filter is very bad and should be fixed immediately. Do not drive the car until it is fixed.

Many have had back luck with parts store brand motor mounts. But many have had good luck with Motorcraft mounts.
Solution, replace with factory mounts.
Don't "think outside the box".
There is no box.
Do it correct, or do it twice.
