cant seem to remove ball joint from springy bottom controll arm
I ahve a 97' Olds Bravada that I bought a few years ago. It ran great when I bought it. One day I filled the gas tank, not long after purchase, and gas poured out. There was a "Mickey Mouse" hose going into the gas tank.(A garden hose to be precise) I took it to a mechanic and he had to replace the fuel pump. After that (and $600 later) I drove it from South Carolina to North carolina, about 3 hrs or so, without a single issue. After awhile I noticed it was sputtering a bit. I had changed out plugs and wires, O2 sensors, fuel filters, fuel pump filter, fuel lines...The truck runs on startup fantastic still, but when it warms up and I go to accelerate, it sputters harshly and stalls. When I shut it down and turn it back on it runs for a few seconds the stalls again. I can't drive 20 feet with it. I need to know what I am missing as far as causes for this. I am awaiting the results for a system code test, but my fther in law is a Mechanic and has been workin on this for almost 6 months to get me back on the road. I read somewhere about a sensor or valve located beneath the fuel injector spider assembly that is a common fuel system problem with this make and model. I need to know "ALL" additional problems with the fuel system that would cause this to happen. There is no loss in fuel pressure at all, but once the accelerator is pressed, it's like there is a huge hole somewhere cutting off the flow of fuel to the injectors. ANY help on this would be appreciated.
Thank you so much,

Came back from repair shop after daughter's 2nd crash with driver's door glass out of of track. She didn't do anything about it, then; now I've paid the car off and drive it. It's been too long for the repair shop to fix it, now. I don't see how to access the mechanism. Any ideas?
My repair shop did it for about 125.00 and i just need to know what to switch
It starts first time in the morning and the rest of the day it takes 5 to 8 cranks to get it to start.
My 2000 bravada will not shift into reverse or overdrive, and shifts hard from 1-2 gear. It won't shift from 1st to 2nd until about 3400 rpm. I have replaced the filter and fluid, which made the "service awd" light go out, but the shifting problem remains. I am thinking that it may be the control solenoid, but I am not sure where to find it. Any other ideas or tech data would be appreciated.

Someone attempted to steal my truck by hot-wiring it while the club was still holding it in place. They stripped it and I don't know how to drive it without hot-wiring it myself.
