It start good ide is at1 on the rpm but drop to5 when put in drive am able to drive but not smooth,any ideals what might be or need to ck before changing computer.

a while the engine backfires when starting. Checked OBDC and NO fault codes show up. After the backfire the engine will start and run rough for about 30 seconds and then clears up and runs fine. Mileage is approx 123000.
Backfire occurs on a cold start or a warm start.
Any help would be appreciated, Thank you

it started making a squeeking noise and then it started smoking. i pulled over and put oil in. the noise went away but now the check gages and battery light are on and its very hard to steer

Also is there a way to keep them from breaking?

had a garage put scanner on and gave me these codes I was told a dealership would help to find out what it is and what to do
