How does someone install manual oil pressure gauge on 2006 chevy 2500 with 6.0L Vortex

where the oil pressure sender unit is on the block install a "t" fitting . Place the electrical unit in one side and a brass fitting in the other . Run the copper line from the gauge through the firewall to the "T" piece and connect up (if you are using a plastic tube the do not waste your time as the plastic fails -cracks ,slips. or melts causing engine failure) Position the gauge and connect the copper line to the gauge . run engine and check for oil leaks.

Cause of rough idle/1990 buick riviera/3.8 l

I agree with the possible bad fuel theory. You would need to figure out if the miss is a fuel problem or ignition problem to proceed.
I would pull the plugs and look at them, also check for vac leaks.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ? If so check for trouble codes.

Engine light stays on code PO 171 45 lb gas pressure

Not sure what the 45lb gas pressure is for. Fuel pressure ??
In most cases the code is for bank one O2 sensor out of range. There are about a dozen possible causes including a vac leak. The sensor is reading too much air in the exhaust based on the other engine readings.
Things like a stuck PVC valve, leaking vac hose, leaking exhaust, leaking intake manifold, or even a failed O2 sensor.

P1171 no mil no other codes

Check compression, maybe worn valves or valve guides. I believe compression should read over 90psi. Check ignition system for obviouse deteriation or carbon/oil buildup on spark plugs, take note which plug has biuldup if any.

Also make sure it doesn't loose oil or coolant, indicating a possible intake or head gasket.

Good luck.

Ruff idle was wondring if problem could be/ o2 sensor/trottle control / I disconnected the MAF sensor and noticed that it is a little better but still ruff idle . From time to time . Example when i come...

The basics for a rough idle, check for a leak of some kind, fuel--egr--vacuum.
Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, see if pressure will hold for a bit with everything off. If it drops like a rock, you have a fuel pressure leak. Check the vac line on fuel pressure regulator, where applicable, if it has gas in it, the regulator is faulty.
Smell of your crankcase oil dipstick, does it smell like gas? If so, either you don't change oil and filter very often or there is a fuel leak getting into your oil.
Any applicable trouble codes?

Repeat bad o2 sensors, oil burning, engine cuts in clutch

You may have a blown heads. Try by replacing the oil pressure sensor located in the rear of the engine. Second clean the throttle body by taking off the hoses. Get the cleaner from the auto parts store. Clean throttle body, air intakes, air filter, new oil filter, and have your feul injectors services. Did you check under the car for oil leaks? Try placing a white sheet under the car to see if you have a bad oil spill. Make sure all harness wires are not shorting out. Alot of wires are placed close to heat sources and could melt them. Yoyu just have to replace the melted section and reroute the wiring........runjoe
