Car has vaccuum leak(s). If you remove the panel under drivers foot area, look to the center area. You will see some vacuum chambers with different color vacuum lines running to them. the yellow one is faulty 80% of the time. Carefully remove it and plug the line itself. you dont need to plug the chamber. this should fix problem, and you wont notice any function lost on climate system.

could be the egnition coil, remove the wire from the distributor and put it close to a piece of sheet metal and turn ignition, without holding the metal of course, and if there is a good spark it's o.k. but if the spark is weak then it could be your problem. might need a new coil. the coil wire is the one in the middle of the distributor.

sounds like you have a computer glitch. i would take it to any auto shop and pay 50 bucks so they can take a look at your e.c.u. (engine control unit) we had a similar problem a few years ago with our 1990 volvo 740 gle 2.3l station wagon. it was a glitch with the computer. got a mixed signal with the mass air flow sensor.

Replace engine oil and filter, air filter and fuel filter.
Drain the fuel tank and add fresh fuel.
Remove the spark plugs and put a squirt of oil in each cylinder. Remove coil lead and crank engine until oil pressure comes up.(light goes out),
replace coil lead and start engine.. it will blow smoke for first few minutes. Check trans fluid, brake fluid etc before driving. Theres a good chance the brakes will need an overhaul.
