Sounds like u haven't regularly serviced the car ! If there is oil coming out of exhaust it will most properly be a fouled spark plug or plugs but the reason 4 it fouling plugs would be either leaking valve stem seals or piston rings!!!
Change spark plugs and see if problem rectifies!

Carb adjustment 1994 GMC throttle body carburetor

A 1994 model should have throttle body injection, not a carb.
There's nothing to adjust for fuel mixture. That is controlled by the engine computer based on 5 or 6 inputs.
The problem could be one of the injectors, or something else.

Throttle body doesnt take in air when accelarating

The engine is a vacuum pump & a compressor

the throttle body is on top of the motor, the accelerator cable goes to it and if it has cruise control, that cable will be there too

Need to know how to remove and clean or replace mass air flow sen

Get a spray can of throttle body cleaner.Take the big hose off coming from the air cleaner to the throttle body.Get someone to press the gas petal or do it yourself under the hood.Look inside the throttle body and you will see the flap opening and closing.Spray the cleaner on the flap and inside the throttle body and clean out all of the black stuff .Do not use carburetor cleaner it will damage the throttle body.It is best to replace a drive axle with a rebuilt one when the boots are busted.Trade yours in for a rebuilt axle this will fix all of your problems.
