The reason for the backfiring is bad connection with the cylinders. Check whether the plug wires going to the right cylinders. If no, correct that to fix the backfiring. Also for power check the choke and fuel filter?

Rick is correct in his answer but the suspected spots are the oil cooler hoses from the radiator back to the oil filter adapter the pressure switch on the adapter and since you say both sides it should be the oil cooler lines good luck and powder up the lines and fittings and have someone else start the engine while your looking for the leak

You have to remove the parts to see where the leak is. Remove the manifold carefully to preserve the evidence. You can check the manifold mating surface with a straightedge. You may find the leak is actually in the head gasket. Make him show you the warpage before letting him sell you new parts. A metal part like the head can be resurfaced at a machine shop.

The surging usually comes from the IAC hunting to maintain a stable idle. usually your symtoms occur from a vacuum leak of some sort. plastic intakes are sometime found to be cracked from heat embrittlement. spray the top of the engine with brake clean when running. if the idle changes when spraying in a certain area you are locating the vacuum leak. the idle will change when the engine sucks in the brake cleaner.

Get your car to a transmission shop right away! You may have not damaged it beyond repair, but you will soon if you keep doing what you say you're doing to it.

That shop is responsible for any damage outside of the fix. If the plug hit the piston severe damage may have resulted. Use a magnet to try to remove the broken zerk. Make sure you are using the correct plug.

Looks like it sits on top of the heater housing left of the blower. You may be able to see it by removing the glove box. These things tend to strip their plastic gears. If you heard a lot of clicking before it failed, that is what happened.
