Question about Chevrolet Chevy
The regulated fuel pressure is between 38 - 44 psi. Misfire can occur due to:
- Ignition system, (ignition coil, spark plugs, ignition timing, cam sensor, crankshaft position sensor)
- Fuel system.
- Vacuum leak.
- Worn out throttle body.
- Weak engine compression.

Make sure that you're getting spark. A very common thing on these engines are coils going bad. If you can verify spark, check to make sure you have an injector pulse. As you rotate the engine, look inside of the throttle body and make sure that you see fuel pulsing into the engine. You can still have good pressure but you don't have an injector pulse, the fuel still cant get into the engine. You can use a test light as well to test for an injector pulse. One wire going to the injector will have constant power and the other will blink when the engie is rolled over. Does it start if you spray starting fluid into the throttle body? If it does, it's a fuel delivery problem. Again be sure you have spark from coil to distributor and plugs. You can remove the ignition module and take it to NAPA and they have a module tester. Have them test the module several times not just once. This will eliminate the possibilites of an intermitted problem. Let me know how it does. firstname.lastname@example.org

Te 1st thing to do is replace the oil pressure guage sending unit, most times that is the problem, if press remains low use a mechanical test guage to verify what the oil pressure is, hook this tester up at the port the sending unit is screwed into.

THOSE NUMBERS ARE VERY GOOD, THE PROBLEM MOST LIKELY IS A DEFECTIVE OIL PRESSURE SENDING UNIT, HAVE REPLACED 100'S OVER THE YEARS FOR THIS SAME ISSUE, GREAT THAT U CHECKED THE PRESSURE THOUGH, IF THE LIGHT WAS INDICATING ACTUAL LOW PRESS U COULD HAVE WASTED THE BEARINGS IN THE ENGINE.

Ignition timing is set by the computer as long as the distributor pickup point is within reason.
It could be running too lean. One of the TBI injectors may be sticking or not working (wiring or computer problem), or fuel pressure could be low.
