My 96 Pajero SWB 3.0 would loose power as soon as i accelerate. It feels like the spark plugs are miss firing or if the engine was flooded.

I did a general service which included oil change, oil filter, fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs i checked my O2 sensor, dissembled and cleaned throttle body and sensors. Cleaned air intake sensor as well as the distributer etc.

Problem not solved, still loose power when i accelerate....can it be something wrong with my ECU??

My A/C control isnt working at all. Found a 15Amp fuse that was blown but when replaced it shorts again. Where can i get a wiring diagram of the heater/a/c system for my vehicle model?

No chance the manfacturers do not release this sort of information or the ECU pins only to the dealers .

If you have an auto zone nearby have them check the codes probably a sensor went bad .Im thinking a map sensor but without testing its only a guess Start with the last code read first than work back if their are multible codes.

Most likely you blew a headgasket. DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR! This will just cause more damage to the motor and could possibly destroy it. The heagaskets can be done without pulling the motor but would be a little easier if you could. Fel-Pro makes a very good aftermarket gasket set. You will need to make sure you have a repair manual and a calibrated torque wrench.

3/8 toe out is too much, should only be about 1/16 to 1/8

Could be either a bad water temperature sender or bad o2 sensor or bad maf sensor.

You will sadly need to call a locksmith.
Please get an extra key made when you get the one made.
Put the extra one in a magnetic container and put that under the driver side on a flat surface.

Good luck
