Check the gap setting on plugs. Also change the O2 sensor. This is usually the check engine light, or EGR-valve. You could also change it too. Then pull positive battery post off for a minute. THis should reset the computer.

Get a star driver and remove ALL the bolts holding the plastic panel onto the door frame.
Lower the window and lift the panel up and away, gently.

    Brake Shoes - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    Light Duty Systems
    1. Raise and support the vehicle and remove the wheel and brake drum from the wheel to be worked on.
    If you have never replaced the brakes on a van before and you are not too familiar with the procedures involved, only dissemble and assemble one side at a time, leaving the other side intact as a reference during reassembly.
    1. Install a clamp over the ends of the wheel cylinder to prevent the pistons of the wheel cylinder from coming out, causing loss of fluid and much grief.
    2. Contract the brake shoes by pulling the self-adjusting lever away from the starwheel adjustment screw and turn the starwheel up and back until the pivot nut is drawn onto the starwheel as far as it will come.
    3. Pull the adjusting lever, cable and automatic adjuster spring down and toward the rear to unhook the pivot hook from the large hole in the secondary shoe web. Do not attempt to pry the pivot hook from the hole.
    4. Remove the automatic adjuster spring and the adjusting lever.
    5. Remove the secondary shoe-to-anchor spring with a brake tool. (Brake tools are very common implements and are available at auto parts stores). Remove the primary shoe-to-anchor spring and unhook the cable anchor. Remove the anchor pin plate.
    1. Remove the cable guide from the secondary shoe.
    2. Remove the shoe hold-down springs, shoes, adjusting screw, pivot nut, and socket. Note the color of each hold-down spring for assembly. To remove the hold-down springs, reach behind the brake backing plate and place one finger on the end of one of the brake hold-down spring mounting pins. Using a pair of pliers, grasp the washer type retainer on top of the hold-down spring that corresponds to the pin which you are holding. Push down on the pliers and turn them 90° to align the slot in the washer with the head on the spring mounting pin. Remove the spring and washer retainer and repeat this operation on the hold down spring on the other shoe.
    3. Remove the parking brake link and spring. Disconnect the parking brake cable from the parking brake lever.
    4. After removing the rear brake secondary shoe, disassemble the parking brake lever from the shoe by removing the retaining clip and spring washer.
    To install:
    1. Assemble the parking brake lever to the secondary shoe and secure it with the spring washer and retaining clip.
    2. Apply a light coating of Lubriplate®, or equivalent, at the points where the brake shoes contact the backing plate.
    3. Position the brake shoes on the backing plate, and install the hold-down spring pins, springs, and spring washer type retainers. On the rear brake, install the parking brake link, spring and washer. Connect the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever.
    4. Install the anchor pin plate, and place the cable anchor over the anchor pin with the crimped side toward the backing plate.
    5. Install the primary shoe-to-anchor spring with the brake tool.
    1. Install the cable guide on the secondary shoe web with the flanged holes fitted into the hole in the secondary shoe web. Thread the cable around the cable guide groove.
    2. Install the secondary shoe-to-anchor (long) spring. Be sure that the cable end is not cocked or binding on the anchor pin when installed. All of the parts should be flat on the anchor pin. Remove the wheel cylinder piston clamp.
    3. Apply Lubriplate®, or equivalent, to the threads and the socket end of the adjusting starwheel screw. Turn the adjusting screw into the adjusting pivot nut to the limit of the threads and then back off 1 / 2 turn.
    Interchanging the brake shoe adjusting screw assemblies from one side of the vehicle to the other would cause the brake shoes to retract rather than expand each time the automatic adjusting mechanism is operated. To prevent this, the socket end of the adjusting screw is stamped with an "R" or an "L" for "RIGHT" or "LEFT". The adjusting pivot nuts can be distinguished by the number of lines machined around the body of the nut; one line indicates left-hand nut and two lines indicate a right-hand nut.
    1. Place the adjusting socket on the screw and install this assembly between the shoe ends with the adjusting screw nearest to the secondary shoe.
    2. Place the cable hook into the hole in the adjusting lever from the backing plate side. The adjusting levers are stamped with an R (right) or a L (left) to indicate their installation on the right or left-hand brake assembly.
    3. Position the hooked end of the adjuster spring in the primary shoe web and connect the loop end of the spring to the adjuster lever hole.
    4. Pull the adjuster lever, cable and automatic adjuster spring down toward the rear to engage the pivot hook in the large hole in the secondary shoe web.
    5. After installation, check the action of the adjuster by pulling the section of the cable guide and the adjusting lever toward the secondary shoe web far enough to lift the lever past a tooth on the adjusting screw starwheel. The lever should snap into position behind the next tooth, and release of the cable should cause the adjuster spring to return the lever to its original position. This return action of the lever will turn the adjusting screw starwheel one tooth. The lever should contact the adjusting screw starwheel one tooth above the centerline of the adjusting screw.
    If the automatic adjusting mechanism does not perform properly, check the following:
    1. Check the cable and fittings. The cable ends should fill or extend slightly beyond the crimped section of the fittings. If this is not the case, replace the cable.
    2. Check the cable guide for damage. The cable groove should be parallel to the shoe web, and the body of the guide should lie flat against the web. Replace the cable guide if this is not so.
    3. Check the pivot hook on the lever. The hook surfaces should be square with the body on the lever for proper pivoting. Repair or replace the hook as necessary.
    4. Make sure that the adjusting screw starwheel is properly seated in the notch in the shoe web.

    Heavy Duty Systems
    1. Raise and support the vehicle.
    2. Remove the wheel and drum.
    1. Remove the parking brake lever assembly retaining nut from behind the backing plate and remove the parking brake lever assembly.
    2. Remove the adjusting cable assembly from the anchor pin, cable guide and adjusting lever.
    3. Remove the brake shoe retracting springs.
    4. Remove the brake shoe hold-down spring from each shoe.
    5. Remove the brake shoes and adjusting screw assembly.
    6. Disassemble the adjusting screw assembly.
    7. Clean the ledge pads on the backing plate. Apply a light coat of Lubriplate®, or equivalent, to the ledge pads (where the brake shoes rub the backing plate).

    How to install rear brakeshoes


    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    If you are not thoroughly familiar with the procedures involved in brake replacement, only disassemble and assemble one side at a time, leaving the other wheel intact as a reference.
    1983-88 Vehicles
    See Figures 1, 2 and 3
    1. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle with jackstands.
    2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
    3. Remove the brake drum, as outlined earlier in this section.
    4. Place Brake Cylinder Clamp D81L-1103-B or equivalent, over the ends of the brake cylinder.
    CAUTIONBe careful that the springs do not slip off the tool during removal, as they could cause personal injury.
    1. Remove the shoe-to-anchor springs, using Brake Shoe R and R Spring BT-11, or equivalent, then unhook the cable eye from the anchor pin.
    0900c1528006be0f.jpgFig. 1: Place the brake clamp tool over the ends of the wheel cylinder, then remove the shoe-to-anchor springs using the correct tool
    1. Remove the shoe guide (anchor pin) plate.
    2. Remove the shoe hold-down springs, shoes, adjusting screws, pivot nut, socket and automatic adjustment parts.
    3. Remove the parking brake link, spring and retainer. Disconnect the parking brake cable from the parking brake lever.
    4. After removing the secondary brake shoe, disassembly the parking brake lever from the shoe by removing the retaining clip and spring washer.
    0900c1528006be10.jpgFig. 2: View of the drum brake components-1983-88 9-inch brake shown 0900c1528006be11.jpgFig. 3: View of the drum brake components-1983-88 10-inch brake shownTo install:
    1. The brake cable must be connected to the secondary brake shoe before the shoe is installed on the backing plate. To do this, first transfer the parking brake lever from the old secondary shoe to the new one. This is accomplished by spreading the bottom of the horseshoe clip and disengaging the lever. Position the lever on the new secondary shoe and install the spring washer and the horseshoe clip. Close the bottom of the clip after installing it. Grasp the metal tip of the parking brake cable with a pair of pliers. Position a pair of side cutter pliers on the end of the cable coil spring, and using the plier as a fulcrum, pull the coil spring back with the side cutters. Position the cable in the parking brake lever.
    2. Apply a light coating of high temperature grease to the brake shoe contact points on the backing plate. Position the primary brake shoe on the front of the backing plate and install the hold-down spring and washer over the mounting pin. Install the secondary shoe on the rear of the backing plate.
    3. Install the parking brake link between the notch in the primary brake shoe and the notch in the parking brake lever.
    4. Install the automatic adjuster cable loop end on the anchor pin. Make sure the crimped side of the loop faces the backing plate.
    5. Install the return spring in the primary brake shoe and, using the tapered end of the brake spring service tool, slide the top of the spring onto the anchor pin.
    CAUTIONBe careful to make sure that the spring does not slip off the tool during installation, as it could cause injury.
    1. Install the automatic adjuster cable guide in the secondary brake shoe, making sure the flared hole in the cable guide is inside the hole in the brake shoe. Fit the cable into the groove in the top of the cable guide.
    2. Install the secondary shoe return spring through the hole in the cable guide and the brake shoe. Using the brake spring tool, slide the top of the spring onto the anchor pin.
    3. Clean the threads on the adjusting screw and apply a light coating of high temperature grease to the threads. Screw the adjuster closed, then open it 1/2 turn.
    4. Install the adjusting screw between the brake shoes with the star wheel nearest to the secondary shoe. Make sure the star wheel is in a position that is accessible from the adjusting slot in the backing plate.
    5. Install the short hooked end of the automatic adjuster spring in the proper hole in the primary brake shoe.
    6. Connect the hooked end of the automatic adjuster cable and the free end of the automatic adjuster spring in the slot in the top of the automatic adjuster lever.
    7. Pull the automatic adjuster lever (the lever will pull the cable and spring with it) downward and to the left and engage the pivot hook of the lever in the hole in the secondary brake shoe.
    8. Check the entire brake assembly to make sure that everything is installed properly. Make sure that the shoes engage the wheel cylinder properly and are flush on the anchor pin. Make sure that the automatic adjuster cable is flush on the anchor pin and in the slot on the back of the cable guide. Make sure that the adjusting lever rests on the adjusting screw star wheel. Pull upward on the adjusting cable until the adjusting lever is free of the star wheel, then release the cable. The adjusting lever should snap back into place on the adjusting screw star wheel and turn the wheel one tooth.
    9. Expand the brake adjusting screw until the brake drum will just fit over the brake shoes.
    10. Install the brake drum and wheel and tire assembly, then adjust the brakes.
    11. Carefully lower the vehicle.
