Mass Airflow is probably defective and setting codes in the computer, have a shop run a diagnostic on it.

Its possible one of the brake calipers is not releasing.
You may need to check each wheel off the ground to see if the brake is releasing after you push on the pedal.

96 jeep cherokee backfire through throttle body


I am going to take a stab at this....as I think you may have a head gasket that has blown out. The head gasket will cause a lil white smoke, and make idling extremely rough. Sometimes water will fill up in the top of the cylinder in the compression chamber when this leak, even minor occurs. That would explain some of the compression issues. Obviously with no compression it will not run properly or even fire if there is water vapor pentrating into chamber mixing with fuel giving you that white smoke/steam.

These are somewhat time consuming to change, but not difficult. The backfiring is caused by the computer trying to compensate for the firing issue. The computer when you change the head gasket is easy to fix. After repairng gasket, try to start the car a few times but not allowing it to run as it will just continue backfiring. Turn key off, let the vehicle set about 30 minutes or so, then go back and the vehicle should run properly again.

Let me know,

Chip

88 GMC C1500 idle problem


Unfortunately, the ECM isn't "OK"...Get a read on the computer and go from there...if I had to guess I'd say ALL the O2 sensors are fouled...especially if you use gas additives or starting fluid.
Good Luck
P.S. did she ever backfire on you?

Won't start


check your fuel pump relay.. if it is not disengaging after the pressure has reached its max after turning the key off, then the relay is probably faulty.
