my 1995 Kimmy starts at times it will idle bat give gas it stalls

I change the spark plugs, the wires and ignition coil but still having problems I remove one hose from the intake and stop the problem once I plug in back the problems start

I bought a replacement switch and the collar isn't in the same position on the switch. Is there a way to adjust it?

car turned off after driving about ten miles with no water in it we put water after pushing it to the side of the road and it was bumpy the whole way home. now i cant drive it because it keeps stalling on me what is wrong with my car???

I been told I have to remove the entire dash also been told to cut a small hole in the plastic glove box an it is located behind there. and yet when I turn the temperature to cool I hear a clicking sound located below the glove box on the passenger side, I have the actuator, but where the factory one is located I can not find any location in Chilton's manual or any other manual.

i just replaced my fuel pump 10 months ago.

I do not know what controls the vacuum for the actuator to pull the cable. Has a new actuator so that is not the problem. The transfer case engages the front driveshaft so all that is left is that front deferential not getting locked in. I cant find any vacuum leaks either.

Last year I replaced front and back brakes. The next week I hear the ABS motor when braking going around turn. The shop checked out the brakes and said that noise was normal.
I took it to a different show and they replaced rear speed sensor. That seem to help till the following week the ABS light stays on. Sometimes when I make a sudden stop the back tires lock up and skid.

This isn't the first vehicle I have had to do engine repairs on just my first solo. Need some help!!!

I just got it back on the road after getting tags and registration changed over to Oregon after my move when maybe a month later my 1995 GMC Jimmy 4.3L Vortex engine blew oil all over my front and underside of engine. I had just replaced the water pump and a top hose for the anti-freeze. Now this.

Where do I start looking for the problem and where do I start repairs?

I HAVE A 95 GMC JIMMY AUTOMATIC 2WD V6 4.3 VORTEC AND I HAVE BEEN NOTICING FOR THE LAST MONTH THAT WHEN I START THE TRUCK IT SEEMS THAT THE MOTOR IS REVVED UP AND I NOTICE THAT THE RPMS ARE KINDA HIGH BEFORE I EVEN PRESS THE GAS PEDAL, BUT WHEN IT WARMS UP IT WOULD IDLE NORMALLY...AND THEN THE OTHER NIGHT I WENT TO THE GROCERY STORE AND WHEN I WAS READY TO LEAVE THE TRUCK WOULDN'T REVERSE AT ALL WHEN I PUT IN "REVERSE", SO I HAD TO HAVE SOME GUYS HELP ME PUSH IT OUT OF THE PARKING SPACE I WAS IN, AND I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE HOME BUT I NOTICED THAT IT SEEMED TO NOT SHIFT GEARS RIGHT (KINDA LIKE IT WOULD SKIP 2ND AND GO INTO 3RD BUT IT DIDN'T CAUSE THE TRANSMISSION TO JUMP OR MAKE ANY GRINDING NOISES OR ANYTHING)I AM SO SCARRED THAT I AM GOING TO HAVE TO REPLACE OR HAVE MY TRANSMISSION COMPLETELY REBUILT, AND I AM HOPING THAT THERE MIGHT BE SOMETHING ELSE THAT COULD BE CAUSING IT? IF ANYONE HAS HAD THE SAME SORT OF ISSUE WITH THERE VEHICLE AND KNOW EXACTLY WHAT CAUSED IT I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE THAT ANYONE COULD GIVE ME...OF COURSR I KNOW I AM GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A TRANNY SHOP FOR A COMPLETE DIAGNOSIS BUT I WOULD KINDA LIKE TO KNOW A LIL BIT ABOUT WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSES OF THE PROBLEM, BECAUSE SINCE I AM A WOMAN IT SEEMS THAT THE PAST EXPERIENCES THAT I HAVE HAD WITH MOST MECHANICS HAVEN'T ALWAYS BEEN THE BEST, AND SOME ARE GONNA TELL ME I NEED A WHOLE NEW OR REBUILT TRANSMISSION BUT IF THERE IS ANOTHER PART THAT COULD BE CAUSING MY PROBLEM OR IF ONLY A CERTAIN PART OF THE TRANSMISSION CAN BE FIXED WITHOUT HAVING TO COMPLETELY REBUILD THE WHOLE THING I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW SO I DON'T LOOK SO NAIVE AND GULLIBLE WHEN I GO TO SPEAK WITH A MECHANIC...I APPRECIATE ANYONE THAT CAN HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM! :)

Then when they light up it starts. But it takes time before they come.
