If lurches when going forward and requires extra throttle, but reverses okay, it due to breakage of the valve body spring. All ZF HP-series automatics have this problem. Have a qualified Jag shop (independent is okay) replace the spring with the improved unit. If you wait too long the transmission will fail completely.

1994 chevy beretta z26 replaced plugs and wires and still runs rough. shakes a lot around 2000 rpm

GM coilpacks are notorious for going bad. Start engine and one by one pull off spark plug boot from coil. You won't need to pull it completly off, just enough till you notice and idle change. You will also hear the sound of the spark jumping the gap you created. You may hear a click or pop noise over and over. If there is no idle change and popping noise when you remove that wire from the coil, then you have a dead post and will need to replace coil pack. If I remember correctly there are 3 coils that fire 2 cylinder each. Replaceing all 3 is generaly a wise decision. But you can get by with just the one that's faulty. Also those cars develop harmonic balancer issues; but they are rare. Lastly motor mounts will give you similar symptoms. Set the parking brake if it still works; or firmly apply foot brake, have an assistant do this while you watch the engine. The assistant with the brake firmly applied will start the engine and put the trans. Into reverse, the assistant will then quickly tap the gas pedal quickly. You watch the engines responce. It is supposed to move a little; but if that engine looks like it wants to jump out of the engine compartment you will need 1 or all mounts replaced. Repeat steps with trans. In drive if you did not notice excessive engine movement with it in reverse. If the engine appears to be in there securely then your mounts are fine. Both of these tests are easy to do.

Driver's side window fell off the track and into the door. How does the door panel come off after removing the screws?

Starting at the bottom rear corner, pull the door panel away from the door. Sliding you finger along the bottom, continue to pop the clips from the door. Once you have all the bottom clips undone, work your way up the sides. Once those are all popped, you lift the panel upward toward the roof and away from the door, toward you.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
