My uncle asked me to tune up his car, Plugs, wires, PVC, and fuel filter.
I replaced the plugs and wires, there was not a pvc value in the car, at the time. So i put in the new one. One my way to work the next day, (my uncle is also my boss) the car kept dying, and would miss very bad, and sometimes surge. Thinking it was the fuel filter i replaced that. not the car has died in my parking lot and i have to get it out of here by Friday. I have also replaced the fuel pump, and that did not help. it will fire for about a second just enough to make me think it is going to start, it is getting spark and fuel. i would like to very much fix this thing, Cuz the sooner i get this ~~~ going the sonned ther Sc can get Fixed

It's a 1991 chevy lumina, euro with a 3.1 efI, the one with the coil pack. (Please don't hurt me for working on a chevy,)

I very much need you help.
