Sound,s like lack of fuel,check the fuel filter may be stopped up,and if it is good,check the fuel pressure,may be fuel pump going bad.

how do I check the fuel filter?

This should be it,under hood,driver,s side fender.

Take it loose,and blow threw it,if it is clear,then it will be the fuel pump.

I took it off and its not clogged or anything so the fuel filter is good

I have another question. my oil pressure gauge idles at 0 then goes up when I rev it. I don't think it should be at 0 while it idles

idling should be at the first tick-mark for your oil pressure

No I haven't solved it yet you can try to do this. On your motor theirs a black bar that runs across the motor attached to that bar is a hose for the idle valve spray a Little wd40 see if that works might but stuck. Also check your ecu to see if your shooting any codes

TDawson -- i had the same problem on my 1991 300zx. Replaced the mass air flow filter and it worked fine. It's an easy install, i did it myself and I am not the least bit handy.
