First check to be sure the vavuum lines at the throttle body are in there correct places.
on the main pulley of your engine, the one on the crank shaft there will be a little notch on it. mark the notch with some chalk or a dab of white paint. then loosen the bolt that holds down the distributor until you can turn the distributor. turn the distributor a little bit, snug the bolt up and try it. once you have the car running you will need a timing lite to set the timing to the correct timing mark. which should be 8 degrees before top dead center for you car.

2000 pontiac sunfire replaced head gasket now it still wont start, it just backfires


It sounds like a timing issue. Make sure the cam shafts and timing belt are installed correctly. Hopefully you have not belt any valves while trying to start it. Good luck.

96 jeep cherokee backfire through throttle body


I am going to take a stab at this....as I think you may have a head gasket that has blown out. The head gasket will cause a lil white smoke, and make idling extremely rough. Sometimes water will fill up in the top of the cylinder in the compression chamber when this leak, even minor occurs. That would explain some of the compression issues. Obviously with no compression it will not run properly or even fire if there is water vapor pentrating into chamber mixing with fuel giving you that white smoke/steam.

These are somewhat time consuming to change, but not difficult. The backfiring is caused by the computer trying to compensate for the firing issue. The computer when you change the head gasket is easy to fix. After repairng gasket, try to start the car a few times but not allowing it to run as it will just continue backfiring. Turn key off, let the vehicle set about 30 minutes or so, then go back and the vehicle should run properly again.

Let me know,

Where do i locate the heater core in a 1991 pontiac 6000le


The heater core is inside the heater case. It is the same plastic case that houses the blower motor. Usually they are replaced under the hood near the firewall or under the dash. I would look at the free online repair manuals provided by parts stores such as autozone.com . They should have the info you need for your particular model.

Problems refiring 99 pontiac grandam gt 3.4 v6


That is an intake backfire, meaning you have the valve timing wrong. Not quite sure right now on what it should be but check timing belt position and valve timing gear positions.
