Listen, if your fluid is nice and pink and the car is running fine, leave it alone and don't change the fluid. Doing so very often affects the seals due to the presence of a new fluid and leads to leaks, slippage, transmission job!
You have been warned. Good luck

if the battery was removed wrong it could have damaged the ecu. the ecu does not like the positive lead removing first. even without the ignition being on a little power still goes into the ecu. you might be able to repair the ecu some ecu's in the old type ecus had a fuse on the ecu board it could of just blown this.

the spec is .043", for both the V6, and the Inline 4. The theory behind enlarging gaps, is that a larger gap creates a larger spark, thus more effecient ignition. The problem is, your ignition system was designed for the .043" spark plug gap, not larger. Enlarging the gap puts a greater strain on your ignition system components, and it may not be strong enough to jump a larger gap. The result would be less efficient combustion, or a cylinder(s) that won't fire at all. Pull your plugs, and set them at .043". Check the distributor cap, rotor, wires, and your filters. Make sure the car is totally warmed up before the smog test. Good luck.

Check the autozone website and register the car information. This will give you access to an online repair manual. It's a very handy resource that you should find useful. Sure hope so anyway and best wishes.

Check condition of air cleaner, spark plugs, fuel filter and timing. Routine maintenance will rule out the obvious, after that you can look for other reasons if the same condition continues.

Combination of brake and battery light mean the alternator is not charging. after you wait for a wile the battery recover some power and will run again but as soon the power drop below 9V the engine die. Test the charging system and replace the alternator
Good Luck

yes it could be the carb and can also be distributor timing or its sucking air in one of the breather pipes or the manifold gaskets isn't as good anymore again resulting in air suction so first check the pipes then spray some carb cleaner in the carb and hold the rpm at about 2500 or try revving it up to 4500 gradually and choke it on top of the carb with your cause it might be dirt stuck in carb
