There are different reasons why this problem is happening. From your description, I believe that you may have an engine failure. Defective piston rings and/or damaged valve seals or guides. The first think I would do is perform a compression test. A compression test (wet and dry) will tell you if the compression levels are even and acceptable. It will also tell you if you are having a valve related issue within the head. Where you are losing oil, I would start here. There really is only three places for oil two go, when there is a failure. into the cylinders and out the exhaust, in the coolant, and onto the ground. I hope this helps, please write back if you have additional questions or updates on your progress, good luck.
check oil level first then if more than qt low bring up to full level them check oil pressure on gauge as cranking car or oil light make sure these things are operating correctly if not this is problem no oil pressure then computer delays starting is this white smoke or black smoke or blue smoke?
The answer to the the back up lights it the trans reverse switch on top of the transmission on the drivers side.The wires seem to corrode and fall out. Its really hard to remove so I used epoxy to set the wire back in place. as for the The other issue. Does this happen more often in the rain? Use some dielectric grease on the MAF sensor connected to the air cleaner. I hope that helps. Hit me up for a better explanation.
looks like you have a lot of problems due to poor maintenance. look for a salvage yard around your area. get an AFM, distributor, and coil/ingiter and swap each component one at a time to identify the culprit (I suspect coil). replace all suspect vacuum hoses (again one at a time). Check engine light can be diagnosed to point out your specific problem so there should be no guess work on this. inspect wiring that connects to the coolant sensor. Also check electrical connections (potitve battery post and all chasis ground). air pockets in the cooling system also causes idling problems so make sure you bleed it completely. also inspect air/fuel filter, plugs and plug wires and distributor cap and rotor. replace as neccessary.
