SOURCE: 1989 GMC 2500 5.7L - engine surges and stalls at idle. Loses power at cruising speed.

Wow you have replaced a lot of stuff. Lets go back to the Fuel pump. When you replaced it did you replace the hose between the pump and the sending unit. These are common for splitting. Have you hooked up a fuel pressure gauge to check what pressure you have? It should be real close to 13 psi and should raise to at least 18 or 19 when you pinch off the return line.

SOURCE: 1995 gmc sierra 5.7 350. rough idle in gear when warmed up poor fuel miledge. changed vacum lines between throttle body and pvc,t-body and evap can. purge solenoid ,egr and map sensor.egr engine code

It sounds like you may have low compression in one or more cylinders, suggest you run a compression test, this should always be done when this condition exists and igintion is not source of problem. This engine also can have issues with intake manifold leaks, use a can of carburetor spray and spray around the intake gasket are to cylinder head, if a leak is present then the idle change when you hit the leak.

Camaro bogs down

check the fuel filter and pump flow for starters. Check for cat converter problems. Check coils are ok as they will allow idle but fail at revs.. Check the o2 sensors are clean and check the MAF/MAP sensors are clean also.

92 Honda Accord boggs down when throttle is pressed at idle speed

try unplugging the egr vacuum source and plug the line and drive. If no difference you ruled out the egr as being the issue.
Please do not rate this solution since by not seeing the car and doing my own test there is no way to tell if maybe you just hooked up something wrong.

93 chevrolet truck bogging down on acceleration

Check intake gaskets. Pour warm soapy water on the gasket when it's running. If it bubbles like crazy, you have a leak. 2. Check timing. Shoot a timing light at the crank mark. If it jumps around a lot, your chain has jumped. #3. check cam. Remove valve covers, run the engine, and see if they are all raisng the valves the same. Put a piece of cardboard along the bottom, and fold it around a little, so it forms kind of a " half valve cover". That way you won't lose oil everywhere, and make a mess, or a fire.
