When the problem is ongoing, if it cranks good, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs, if everything is hot, wear gloves. Check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
I'm especially interested in the fuel injector pulse. If your losing rpm signal, there will be no fuel injector pulse.
How long since overall tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Your obd1 so checking trouble codes should be easy, as long as your mil lamp works. There may not be any codes, I don't know? I can only help with testing, you have to do the testing.

To start, take the vehicle to a dealer and ask them to screw an oil pressure gauge into the block hole and check your oil pressure whilst idling and while driving it.
I have a 1993 and it does the same thing, but the problem is only the gauge itself.
If it is actually having such oil pressure fluctuations, you may have a defective pump, a clogged pump filter screen, or a clogged oil filter.
God bless your efforts.

Assuming you are correct, then the only two things still needed are air and compression. As long as the air filter and air intake is not completely clogged, you have air. Perform a compression test to ensure that there is sufficient compression to support combustion.

You should be able to look down the throttle body and see into the air bypass chamber that the IAC uses to divert air around the throttle blade. Look to see if the pintle is all the way out closing off the flow of air. When you turn the key on you should see the pintle move back and allow air to move through. If the pintle is not moving that it may be stuck in the bore. Especially if there is a lot of carbon build up in that passage.

Sounds like you need a new battery, but just in case take the battery to a place like Autozone or another car part place and get them to test it. It's usually free to test.

Check for a blown fuse. Replace fuse. If it blows the fuse right away, then you have something shorting out the circuit.

Fuse panel is probably located under the dash board, to the left of the steering column.

IF you're using the cigarette lighter as an actual lighter and not as a 12 volt plug for a phone charger, THEN I would suspect the heating element of the lighter itself.

Hope this helps.

Depends if its electric locks/windows or not. You can go to any auto audio installer shop and they can pull it for you in less than 5 minutes. They will do it right in front of you and probably wont cost anything to very little.
