Unhappy 1997 Acord won't rev past 3000 rpms

i bought an old beat up 97 manuel acord back in august for 1200 and i expected problems to arise, i mean come on 1200!!, anyways it drove fine after i got the brakes updated and cleaned the radiator or at least it drove fine until i recked it in march. i spent 1500 on the front end body work fixing bumper, brackets, lights, hood, ect.... but i drive it home and i notice that when i try to accelerate past 3000 rpms its like it has hit a govenor, the rpms start to fall back below 3000 until it catches itself then jumps back to 3000 and repeats, it does this in all gears and when in neutral if i try to rev it past 3000 rpm it just does the same thing. please if u kno what is wrong with this thing tell me i dont want to pay three times for this piece.
thnx
z
P.S. oil floods my spark plugs and it has done this since i bought it if u kno what this is i would love to kno

All the plugs are oily? On the tips or the outside part?

when i pull the electrode off of the spark plugs the bottom is oily and if i shine a flashlight into the plug well i can see oil flooding the plugs, but my main problem is the rev problem

There are o-ring seals on the valve cover that keep the oil off the plugs. I have a friend with a Mazda that had the same oil seepage. Eventually the oil messed up the plug wires and the car stopped running. Your rev problem could be weak spark due to oil soaked plug wires.
