Question about Cars & Trucks
You could try another fuel filter and some heavy duty injector cleaner. A garage would use a product that hooks into the fuel line and skips the gas tank to clean the injectors. The PS fluid could have also gummed up the fuel pump in the tank.

when its in that not running stage or it dies you need to try and shoot a little starting fluid or gasoline into the throttle body or air cleaner and try and start it again .. If it starts then we know you have a fuel pump going out .. and its in the gas tank .. thanks Jerry and holler if you need more..

Backfiring after warming up can be from many things.
One that comes to mind is carbon deposits on valves, causing them to not close properly. The carbon deposits would also heat up and then ignite air/fuel mixtures before the spark plug can fire.
Or you would have hot exhaust gasses leaking back into the cylinder on intake and that would ignite the fuel.
Tac gauge fluctuating, and engine running rough on acceleration could be a vacuum leak, do you hear a hissing sound when the engine is running? listen closely under the hood. If you have a vacuum leak you would lose power and your RPM would fluctuate oddly. As for the backfire however, there are probably more than just one problem. Its hard to say for sure.
So please, more details, noises you hear, when exactly everything happens etc.
What speed and RPM the engine begins to bog down at, does it stall? What range is ur tac fluctuating at? anything you can think of, throw it on there.
Hope this helps you

OK FIRST PULL A WIRE OFF A PLUG CRANK ENGINE OVER AND CHECK FOR SPARK. THEN YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO CHECK FUEL PRESSURE. THIS HAS TO BE DONE WITH A GAUGE TO SEE IF YOU ARE HOLDING 9-13 PSI ONCE YOU FIND OUT WHICH ONE IS MISSING YOU CAN FIND THE PROBLEM. IF YOU HAVE BOTH IT IS TIMING . THIS VEH HAS A TIMING CHAIN. SO FIND OUT AND RE POST AND WE CAN HELP YOU GET THIS STARTED.
