1991 plymouth stalled and oil light on

The oil pressure light can/will keep power from reaching the fuel pump. So you would need to check oil pressure first.
Then once the oil pressure light problem is resolved checking the fuel pressure might be next.

Gets spark no fuel

I suggest the following:

Perform a OBD-I diagnostic scan;
Check and replace the fuel filter;
Test the fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge;
Check the fuel pressure regulator; and,
Check the fuel pump fuse and relay.

The diagnostic scan will immediately identify your problem. This is imperative should the fuel pump be inoperative.

You can EXPECT to have to replace a few parts on a 17-year-old car...Doesn't make it a devil, just makes it a senior citizen in need of a little TLC...:)
The MOST LIKELY cause of your problem is the ignition pick-up coil. It is located under the distributor cap and looks like the picture below.

Have fuel pressure tested, or at the least, change fuel filter. Fuel pump may be on it's way out but it only takes 5 minutes to test the fuel pressure to confirm.

start with a new fuel filter and air filter. and quite likely you have some crud in the tank that is not helping perhaps a new fuel pump and tank are in order too. sorry to say ... but cars are evil and will turn on you when you can least afford to fix them.

My 91 sundance 2.2L when it starts the engine shakes and makes alot of noise and i can smell gas like big time.Also when i put it in gear (drive or reverse) the car dies by itself please help me.

There are many possible solutions to your problem. Is it due for a tune up (spark plugs, fuel and air filters, PCV, etc). If the car has been maintained and this is a sudden problem I would look first at spark. Reason? Because it stalls going into gear.You can smell fuel so it's less likely the problem, It just isn't getting burned properly.
If you can, start it in poor light conditions with the hood open and look for sparks jumping off the ignition wires. If you do, replace them.
Another common problem is a slipped timing belt, one tooth off and those engines ran poorly, something like you are experiencing now. Another common problem was a bad EGR valve. If it sticks open at idle it allows exhaust gas back in when it shouldn't be.
Need more help after checking that let me know.
