Sounds like you have a weak battery or corroded or oxidized terminals. Back fire is because of gas build up in the chambers and the exhaust.

Put the car on a proper battery charger overnight. If you disconnect the battery, you will have to reset the anti-theft system.

This could be at engine due to 1) poor gas octane 2) hot engine
for gas try super unleaded and test. keep an eye on temperature also which should be normal

There will be one of three things wrong:
1) The oil pump lost prime. This engine uses a gerotor type pump and long periods of sitting allows the oil to drain back to the pan.
2) There is a restriction at the oil pickup screen or at the passage between the block and head. There is a check valve in the block (at the head gasket, there is an opening) and there could be trash blocking it.
3) IF you're lucky, its a defective sending unit.
Until you know for sure, don't run it. Install a mechanical guage, disable the ignition system at the module plug, and crank the engine. Some pressure should register on the gauge, if only 3-5psi. If it doesn't, remove the oil filter, take a quart of oil with a nozzle on it and force oil back into the outlet port of the filter housing, fill the filter completely, then spin it on as quickly as you can. Some oil will be spilled, but this is a step you want to take before tearing into the motor. Another quick way is put approximately 10 quarts of oil in it and with the ignition disabled, crank it over and see if the pressure comes up. (GM sent that as a bulletin on Northstar engines that lost prime. The down force of the pistons will force the oil to go to the pump.) JUST BE SURE TO DISABLE THE IGNITION. Hope this helps...

A lot of possible causes - have you checked for trouble codes (DTCs)? If no codes, given the age it could be in the fuel delivery system (for example, fuel pump stopping either due to an intermittent electrical problem at the ignition switch or in the wiring such as corroded connectors).

That's is really not a good description, but it sounds like a stabilizer bar link. Does this look like the part?

in order to repair this problem you will need, a steering wheel puller, a steering wheel lock plate tool, a phillips #2 screwdriver, a 5/16" deep socket and ratchet, atilt knuckle pin puller and a #15 & #25 torx bits.

first remove the steering wheel, then the sterring wheel lock plate, then remove the 3 phillips screws that are holding the trun signel switch and the 1 phillips screw that is holding the turn signal lever to the switch and pull up on the turn signal switch( you will not be able to remove it just lift it high enough to get to the stuff under the switch) you will see 3 #25 torx head screws and 1 #15 torx head screw remove the #15 and slide the key assy. out of the collom then remove the 3 #25 torx head screws, and remove the tilt handle it just screws into the collum, then slide the top housing off of the collum it will just hang on the wires to the turn signal switch. now if you look down the inside of the collum you will see 4 inverted torx #8 you will be able to get to 3 of the four at tis point but if you want to tighten the last screw you will need to split the tilt knuckle. do this by pulling the tilt pins in the each side of the knuckle and removong the top of the knuckle. be very carefull with this step because you can do perment damage to the collum if you arnt very carefull......let me know if there is any thing else you may need, by the way you can get all the tools a autozone.......GOOD LUCK
