unplug the MAF sensor and see if that helps.

I assume you have spark since it is backfiring. Will it start if you use a little carb spray in the throttle body?

If it does than you have a fuel issue. Check fuel pressure. You should see more than 35 psi roughly. If there is no fuel pressure than check for power to the pump (the larger of the two grey wires at the pump). If there is power than the fuel pump would be the first thing I suspected.

I found problem to be that corrosion sets in between the CAMS plates that circle in an opposing fashion and does not let the wiper arms park correctly. Be very careful with this mechanism if you have the cowling off TURN the KEY and WIPERS OFF and watch your fingers so you don't get them caught.
WARNING if you leave the power on and try to move the arms This cam mechanism springs to life and will try to self park the wipers on their own so Turn the Power and Wipers Off.
SOLUTION: 1. With the ENGINE COLD, Spray a lubricant that FREE'S CORRODED PARTS like WD-40 between the gap of the 2 CAM Plates and on Top of the plates, or use some other automotive parts lubricant that free's corroded parts(let it soak for 5 minutes). 2. Gently Try to manually move the arms back and forth a little bit so that the spray works into the parts. 3. This may not be necessary but I had to do this the first time. There is a notch in the top cam that has a STUD that locks the 2 CAMs together. You can push on this STUD to unlock the cams by manually moving the wipers(use a screw driver to push on the STUD and have a friend gently move the wipers manually. Spray the area LIBERALLY with with the Lubricant Spray and see if you can move the CAMS back and forth and work the lubricant in.
Then with the wiper cover out of the way and all tools clear Try to cycle the wipers HIGH and LOW, ON and OFF a few times it may stick the first couple times with the wipers in the up position but I am confident that the lubricant will work its way in and free these CAMS the way they are supposed to. Your wipers should self park after cycling them after 5-10times. This should solve most of the problems with these wipers and should be relubricated as needed. Clean up any extra lubricant Put the wiper cover back on.

Car no start problem is sometimes very difficult to confirm. You try all the possible things, but still you get no fault and problem is still the same.--------
In that case, you need to check few things individually.
Check the spark,the battery,the crank, the fuel and other most possible parts. Click this link below for more details:-- http://howtobyme.blogspot.com/2011/10/car-troubleshooting-tips.html

The coolant level sensor is faulty.Replace the sensor and reset the computer by either pulling the ECM fuse out then put it back or disconnect the ground cable on the battery for 30 seconds or you can you can reset it with a scan tool.

Yes if that plug he left in was bad or worse yet, if that plug that wasn't changed is actually missing. You need to check that all the plugs are actually installed first and also that the Spark plug wires are actually seated on each plug completely. Unfortunately a lot of "Shadetree" mechanics make the mistake of pulling on the wire itself to get them free and as a result damage the wires causing this problem. Another possibility is he has the coil wire loose or damaged or the firing order mixed up. The firing order is usually stamped on the intake manifold near where the air intake or carb are mounted to the manifold. The Distributor cap should have a mark indicating the number 1 position and the rest follow in clockwise fashion. The problem is this is the time frame that Chevy was switching between Distributors and Coil packs which are commonly square and a little more difficult to identify the actual position on. If you suspect the firing order and want to be sure beyond a doubt about what it is and which is which on a Coil pack I recommend you get a Haynes or Chilton's manual on your vehicle from Auto Zone or Advance Auto parts store, other Auto parts stores carry them as well anywhere from $12 to $20 dollars depending on your area.
