stalling problem, getting bad

i drive a 94 z28, couple weeks ago my car stalled while i was stopped at a stoplight, kinda confused i started it up and went on my way. a day later i was on the highway and when i shifted into 5th gear, i pressed down on the gas and nothing happened, put the clutch down and tried again, when i came out the car shut off, started it back up and went on my way. i replaced the fuel filter and the problem seemed to stop for a few days. the problem came back and it got worse, i noticed that when it is about to stall the rpms go really low when idling, about 800, and my oil pressure drops too. Yesterday was the worse, every time i let off the gas to stop my car, the car shut off, was a hell of a drive getting home. me and my stepfather seem to think its the fuel pump, or maybe a clog in the fuel lines, but i dont want to buy the parts and go into fixing it without knowing its the sure thing.
any thing will help, thanks

Re: stalling problem, getting bad

Did you buy your gas anywhere else than you usually do? Sounds like you might have some bad fuel. Try filling your tank with some new gas and see if that helps.

Change the ingition module in your distributor. That should do it.

Or like you said it could be your fuel pump.

Swap it out for another one, use AC/Delco or OE replacement.

It should come with a squeeze tube of silicone grease. Use the whole tube and smear it on the bottom of the module. This grease helps tranfer heat away from the module to keep it cool.

Might as well change out the rotor also since you're there and it has to be removed. Clean the distributor cap terminals of corrosion. If they are badly corroded, change the cap. New cap should have brass terminals for reliabilty. Plug wires would be next.

Do you see a snowball effect here?

You Say Your Oil Pressure Is Dropping Too? Some Gm's Have A Low Oil Pressure Switch That Will Shut It Down When Pressure Drop's
