Replaced starter in my 2004 GMC Yukon. I had the hot wire and the solenoid wire touching causing the vehicle to crank when battery terminal was re-attached. Put wires correct but now it won't idle.

On some vehicles, the computer has to "learn" how to run efficiently after the battery has been disconnected for a period of time. I had an 04 Cadillac that would not idle either after the battery was disconnected for several hours. I tried everything to get it to idle right, resetting the computer, etc. Once I actually drove it around the block it started running correctly after about 1/8 mile. I could not get it to "learn" until I actually drove it, letting it run in park for almost two hours was not enough, it had to go through the process of actually driving to get everything back to normal.

95 Park Avenue Tach is sporatic and engine seems like misfire but recovers. Only does it when it feels like it and is not constant. Doesn't matter if at idle or driving down the road. All of a sudden...

I don't know what ICM stands for but I was having exactly the same problem with my '95 Park Avenue and it turned out to be the main computer brain (the plain metal box tucked up under the dash on the passenger side). Sounds like you might very well be having the same issue.

My truck was traveling at 70 mph, I gave it more fuel and it bucked and backfired hard enough to feel in cab. Just got new wires, plugs, cap and rotor. Once I let off it continued fine and even ran well...

definately clogged fuel filter or poor fuel pressure. Remove the filter and blow through it-if you have veins stick out of your forehead it is clogged. Go run it hard and then park it and observe the catalytic converter. If it is glowing red, then you have a clogged cat.

Transmission clunks when shifting, already had it replaced twice

Did you check the coupling between the drive shaft and the tranny for wear? (universal joint)

Have someone in the car and lay on ground nearby so you can see the universal joint when they put it in gear. DO NOT lay under car when they put it in gear!

'05 Astro van is "bucking" at low speed when turning left or righ

Sounds like you have a c/v joint beginning to go bad...Could be wrong.... but, I'm not there to test it! Look underneath and see if any c/v boots are torn... that will be your first clue!!

Truck losing power and service engine soon light on

Like to other guy said, give it a tuneup. Also try SEAFOAM to clean carb up of slug. Also check to make sure the butter fly for the choke has not come loose, causing it the choke it down. Failed choke pull-off.

1988 GMC w/ fuel injectio

My 1988 GMC jimmy with V-8 and automatic transmission w/ over drive would buck and **** at low speeds. The problem was identified by a FixYa guy as a transmission problem and suggested I try adding a Lucas product transmission additive at about $4. I did that and I am amazed that the old truck runs smooth, even idles better and does not stall when I go to reverse.
