1991 Chevy Lumina Euro 3.1

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Evil stepson put dirt in oil.  Had engine
pulled/cleaned.  My mechanic said it would
purr like a kitten. Well it's not.  More like a
cat with a nasty hairball, choking. Fuel
pressure is good. Oil pressure and temp
guages good.  Keeps dying. Doesn't want to
start back up right away.  Where do I look
first for a fix?

Maybe he put dirt in the gas tank and it made it through the filter and is now clogging the injectors.

Dagnabit! I was worried about that. Wondering if changing filter would make a difference

I'd check the tank and filter to see if there is a problem. But if you have proper pressure at the fuel rail, and you said that you have good fuel pressure, pull a plug and see if it's wet with gasoline. If it's dry, I suspect it's clogged injectors. If wet, you might have an ignition problem.
