    I just changed the sparkplugs yesterday and now my car wont start. Took it to a shop and they said the sparkplugs had too much oil leaking into them and that it might be that I need to do a major tuneup for $180 and change the valve cover gasket for an additional $75. But they are still not sure if this will fix the problem that my car wont start or sometimes turns off when I stop pressing on the gas.

There's another set of seals below the rocker arm assembly that will leak into the spark plug holes. This is a fairly big job to fix, maybe best to keep draining the oil out periodically. Bearings are probably fine.
May need an idle valve, but they can clog with carbon- I'd take it off and check that first. Cleaning that out just may solve that.

What leeler5 is saying is that possibly your valve seals are leaking oil into the combustion chamber and fouling the plugs.

Oil in spark park plugs

You have leaking spark plug grommet/seals under the valve cover, and most likely being a 91, also have leaking cam tower o-rings. The first is just a matter of replacing the valve cover gasket set. The second requires removal of the cam tower/rocker arm shaft assy. to access the o-ring seals between them and the head. If you are not an experience mechanic, I do not recommend doing this yourself. It is easy to damage parts and bend valves if you don't seat it properly.

High CO means too much fuel in the mixture. Try replacing the O2 sensor. If your check engine light is on, you might a have a bad MAP sensor on the intake manifold (have to pull the code to make sure). Replace the air filter too. Also good idea to replace spark plugs (and/or PROPERLY GAP THEM) and change the oil.

It could be the ignition (spark plug) leads that connect to to the spark plugs, one could be shorting out or open circuit. Get them tested if possible, or just buy a new set, probly not too expensive. Could try swapping the leads with some known good ones (ie off another car that doesn't have the problem) before buying new ones, but if it's a '92 and never had them replaced it's probly good to do them anyway.
