Check engine light is on. Parts store staff at 2 stores checked with gauge and said the engine is getting more air than fuel; that it might need a vacuum hose or something like that. I cannpt get it...

Start looking around your throttle body and intake manifold for possible vacuum leaks. If there is a substantial leak, you will be able to detect a hissing sound if you listen closely. Often times the rubber elbows on the vaccuum lines will melt and break down due to the heat, especially if your throttle boby is between the engine and the firewall. If you do manage to locate the leak, point out the part to your part-store guys and they should be able to help you find a replacement. Hope this at least got you pointed in the right direction.

Brakes dont stop suburban till I push real hard

Check brake system. Resurface brake rotors. Replace pads. Check drums and shoes. Fush system. I use cross drilled rotors and carbon fiber pads. Stop in a hurry. Some Suburbans (94 and up) have slow ABS units that take their time to allow brakes to activate.

What age? What Mileage?

Brake hoses go bad and either prevent brakes from operating or prevent them from pulling back after being applied. Had this problem too.

Also check for vaccuum leaks. TBI engines had a loose metal tube under the TBI unit. I had a vaccuum leak and had to tighten my tube 6 times @ 1/4 turn each. Solved problem.

Try to use some liquid around vaccuum hoses and see if idle changes. Non TBI engines have plastic intake issues.

Check check valve in vaccuum booster. My was bad too.

Molded hose neeed to be replaced. I used two hoses and a brake booster filter in the HELP section to make the 90 degree turn from the hard line to the check valve.

93 Suburban 2WD. Runs great now. 16 mpg city.

High idling on a 96 cavalier.

Check for a bad vaccuum hose under the hood. A vaccuum leak will raise your idle.

With my foot on the brake and in drive I rev the gas but when I take my foot off the car idle drops and then it stalls

Check under the hood for a vaccuum leak. This could be a bad vaccuum hose. If no vaccuum leak then this actually sounds like your IAC is bad (idle air control motor) and needs replaced.

Truck idles high, does not run rough, idle adjust screw is bottomed out still seems to idle high, does this hot and cold.

I would check for a broken vaccuum hose . A vaccuum leak will raise the idle considerablly.

Check engine light remains on. originally had P0171 code. changed vaccuum hose, air filter, also cleaned sensor. problem back. Looking for solution???

I would recheck the vacuum. also if your brakes are harder to stop, you could a hole in the booster diaphram. if all that checks out then I would be looking at the exhaust before the sensor, and at the intake manifold for leaks. best way to check the manifold is to use WD 40, just spray it around where a suspected leak might be. If the engine smoothes out or runs a little higher that is where the leak is. Also you could have a bad sensor.
Good luck

Engine runs at a fast idle. This started after a backfire during a start up;

I would check vaccuum hoses are all connected and unbroken.
Sounds like maybe when it "backfired" it popped a vaccuum line loose.
The way I check for Vaccuum leaks is spray WD-40 the entire length of each hose while it is running, when vaccuum sucks in the WD-40 it will "Rev" the engine some.
