      One subject that affects all of us is car repair on a budget. I have a

      disabled husband and daughter and rely on our car for dr appointments.

      Today it is not running and I need advice on how to do cost effective

      repairs. Here is what happened, the other day it ran fine, then we

      noticed it was not wanting to go uphill very much. Oil pressure, all

      fluid levels,etc were good. It started to backfire and shirt hard (its

      automatic). The next day my husband changed plugs and when he started

      it up the oil pressure was 0, but it was ok the day before. It back

      fired. Today we went to take him to the dr and it would not go over

      20mph, backfired, but all fluid levels and oil pressure was good. It is

      a 1982 GMC 3/4 ton Vandura conversion van, automatic, 305 and ran

      wonderful until this point. We can’t afford another right now so I need

      to know the most cost effective way to fix this. Any ideas?
