Hard to keep vehicle in it's lane, tends to wander all over road, first to one side then to other side after steering correction is made.

I poened it (slide back style) and now it will not fully close again -- reaches about half an inch from closed and stops, won't pop back up to flush with the roof. I don't see anything blocking, and have heard this isn't uncommon for GM trucks in this era.

Can someone offer diagnosis / correction advice please?
window does not go down - only up.
I have taken the time to check the grounding the fluid and the connections. It still will not shift into 4 wheel drive. If I stop and put it in nutural I can get the 4 low to engage but the 2 wheel light up as well. very loude shift but I am not confident that it is really engaged.
also can not get the transfer case to register nutural on the selector.
When the truck is warmed up and the weather is HOT outside, it seems to load up with fuel. it pops and "backfires" when accelrating until it "cleans itself up" then will run fine until idling again then it starts all over again. NOW when the weather is a little cooler outside it doesnt seem to do it as much. I was told I should take a look at the Fuel pressure regulator. Does this sound like it may be the problem?? and if so, is there any way to check it??
