You might try to richen that carb intake a bit. You might want to spray some intake cleaner in the intake as well and make sure to get some of the gunk out of there. I would add a fuel system cleaner in the tank as well but a rebuild will net the best results.

Engine Performance problem 1997 Chevy S-10 4


According to my book, the first code is the brake control rough road sensor, and P0302 is a cyllinder #2 misfire. Check the gap on your plug, and make sure the plug wire is on all the way. Give the boot an extra good push. Backfiring or misfiring under load is always caused by poor ignition. You may also have a faulty plug or wire.

88 Toyota Corolla backfires through carburetor.


If that is carbureted, and has a mechanical fuel pump, try running a length of fuel line from inlet side of pump to a gas can that has fresh, clean fuel, and if it runs good that way, you know problem is most likely in the tank. Removing the tank & cleaning it out is best solution from there. I'd even be tempted to add a small bottle or 2 of Lucas Fuel Sytem Cleaner to first fill in clean tank, just to help clean lines as well as carb.
