The best answer to the carbon monoxide should be the error codes. Maybe it's just the cats, maybe something else. How's the car running ? Spark plugs ok ? Air filter ?

1500 is not the most expensive paint job ever, but not spare change either. Don't do anything to the car yourself, take it back to the shop until you have the result you are happy with.
