May be valve adjustment? lean? Is it rhythmic or random? If its rhythmic find out which cylinder has the problem disconnect each spark plug until the back firing stops.

Hello! The Top Dead Center Sensor is the most likely culprit...However, it is not sold as a separate item and is part of the distributor...The cost of which is $350...I would suggest having the vehicle hooked up to a diagnostic machine to be certain...A diagnostic check should be under a $100...See distributor picture below...



I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Pops, while pushing the gas pedal, and back fires and smells like gas and shakes while pressing the gaspedal, on 91 jeep cherokee l 4.0
spark timing way off. or burned valves.
i dont think a 4L can change cam timing. (gears)
that is gross misfire,
so bad it backfires to the throttle body and air cleaner
in all cases is bad spark timing, or worse burned valves.
bad rotor & cap,?
doing a tune up get rid of that carbon tracked bad cap.
and timing magically works.
ever do a full tune up this decade or in last 60,ooo miles>

Changed the water pump and I had to reset timing like 15 times took it apart and checked and would not fire up. Finally checked again today and it was out. I got it all timed in and rotated it a few

if you bent valves then there will be insufficient compression to fire the mixture. have a compression test done to determine if the valves are bent

When i give it full throttle it backfires through the throttlebody? already replaced plugs, wires, cap and rotor, idle air valve. cant find crank positioning sensor to set timing.

When you state you have a "Cap & Rotor", indicating an engine, which may possibly be OLDER than the 1994 S-10 it is in. A Crank positioning sensor, on a full throttle body, (or do you mean carburetor/combo/injector system) Not the true name, but, in appearance, looks like a carb. It has a "pulsating" injector within the opening of the butterfly/mouth of the throttling body. When you have an ECM, or Computer Command timing, with a crank sensor, you will have 2 coil packs for 4 cylinder, a 3 coil pack for a V-6. They will be just under the electric cooling fan for the radiator. If you are driving a "bought used" vehicle, and the Cap, Rotor, & wires are only accessed thru the RH wheel well, it is a "Distributor System" & an OLDER engine. The Back fire is being caused by a "jumped" timing belt, or HOPEFULLY, a crossed spark plug wire.

How to do timing belt on audi a4 tdi ajm engine 2000

I dont think you should do this type of job unless you are a tech, major engine damage can occur if any adjustment of the gears are off, i will send you a few diagrams of what needs to be done to do a timing belt on one of these, i have done many and i still triple check everything to avoid damage to motor, the front bumper asm, needs to be removed, the radiator and ac condensor removed the ac system drained out and much more.if you would like to tackle this a will help you just let me know, hope this helps good daysjohnjohn2_116.gifjohnjohn2_117.gifjohnjohn2_118.gif

The reason I'm checking the timing belt is that there is mis-fire in 1 & 2 cylinder. If the firing order is 1,2,3,4. I have continues fire out of 1 & 2, when plug wires are pulled out of head. 3...

unplug the fuel injectors, check the olhms on all. the readings should all be the same, around 11-11.5 olhms. Any readings that are higher is a sign of a bad injector which is what your problems sounds like., putting to much fuel to a cylinder causing different fuel amounts to each cylinder and causing it to backfire out of the throttle body , excess fuel . Also remove the throttle body and clean with cleaner and a toothbrush after replacing any injectors. Or there's a simpler answer and that the cambshaft is worn-out/round causing the lifters not to open enough to let in all the fuel. A worn belt would not cause misfires only on select cylinders but rather jump timing, slipping a notch on a gear and possibly bending a valve or valves and this cause a loud clacking or a really a sign to quit running the motor because it's broke! Good luck.

I have a dual over head cam 97 neon.It is not firing, i changed the crank sensor,the coil,and still no fire. the relay was fire. The last time it run yesterday, it run horrible. Backfiring,...

remove your valve cover and have someone try to crank it over while you watch the camshaft to see if it turns, your timing belt may have jumped a tooth ( causes bad running and back fire ) and then broke
