Default 88 Honda accord looses power at 2k RPM-please help... im at wits end!!

this is a 1988 honda accord with 235,167 miles on the car. the car "chugs" and looses power whenever i go up hills. i also lose power at high speeds, 80 mph is max that i can do. it smells like it is burning oil as well. what is bad about this is that the problem is selective. when it does occur, it feels like the rev limiter is kicking in. it feels like the secondaries on the carb arnt working. it was bad enough where the car shut off as i was traveling up hill and would not stay running.

i have replaced the fuel filter, cap and rotor, plugs (which wont help that much) and a couple of vacuum lines. the motor has always been filled with oil.

i changed the oil 2 months ago.

ive had people say that the catylitic converter is broken and is plugging the exhaust from leaving the car (otherwise creating back pressure and choking the motor). ive had other people tell me the fuel pump or relay is going dead. i also think that this might be a clutch problem.

at this point i do not know were to start!
some one please help

SOLVED: fuel pump
