Have a gauge hooked up to low pressure fuel pump and it shows it works but high presssure one doesnt


Check to see you have oil up to full on dipstick . The high pressure pump picks up oil at the top level so if oil starts to get to low engine will stop before engine damage . The high pressure pump is what makes the injectors fire . Also check the wires that go thru valve cover some times they burn up and you can smell the burn thru the oil filler cap .

1992 chevy lumina euro 3.1 while driving the engine acts like it is going to die then it regains power and then repeats the sluggish, lack of fuel .


check fuel pressure most likely bad fuel pump. also check your oil sending unit or gauge. chevys run the fuel relay to the oil pressure switch in case the oil is so low the car wont start. sometimes the relay in between this circuit goes bad as well. if all is well check or replace the ignition module (located directly under coils) or distributor integrated if it has a distributor

It sounds like you have slipped a bearing and you'll need a new engine. You get most of your oil pressure from your connecting rod bearing and crank shaft bearing, you still have some oil pressure. No oil pressure will cause your engines ECM to shut the engine down, but from what you have described. The engine is to far gone for repairs and a engine swap would be the more economical thing to do.
Thank you for using fixya and sorry for the bad news.

Starts runs realy rough then dies put new fuel


It sounds like you already solved your problem. Attach fuel gauge to fuel rail pressure line and monitor for fuel pressur (above 30 p.s.i. @ crank). If pressure low suspect pump. If pressure o.k. but dies out and pressure drops but restarts, check oil sending switch as this controls fuel pump. Computer primes pump for start, then oil sender powers up pump for normal operation. Check for oil leaking at terminals on sender. Also check plug connector at fuel sender on tank as they are known to melt and fail. If fuel not problem, check for spark as ignition module failure is common. Have obd2 diagnostic run to check for codes as this may help with diagnosis.

Runs rough and stalls


I would further suspect fuel delivery issues primarily the pump. This is an intank mounted pump and they are a very fast moving parts across counters everywhere. This means they go out alot. The only thing she can do as a driver is to listen to that pump run. In a quiet place like a closed garage,turning key on -engine off (no cranking) will run that pump for 3 seconds. I've noticed they generally work about as good as they sound.A new, good pump sounds very quiet and smooth sounding as a failing pump sounds a bit squeelish,loud and labored. These however are somewhat suttle sounds you are listening for taking in consideration your listening to a pump motor inside a fuel tank submerged in gas.Next step is installing fuel pressure gauge and running diagnostic for verification.
