Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Bravada
I have a 1991 Olds Bravada with a 4.3 tbi engine. It is idling rough and backfiring through the tbi when you first crank the engine, could it be the timing or something like that? I changed plugs wires cap and rotor, also replaced the ignition module. Please help!!!!!
Ok guys, let's fix these things here!
Just went through this myself, so do the following:
Go to your local parts store and buy a Haynes Repair Manual.
You need to read the book first, learn how the ECM (Electronic Control Module) works. You'll see that there are alot of sensors and components that make up the fuel emissions bologna.
The nice thing about this system is not only does the ECM control all electrical functions, it also trouble-shoots it's self. When a component or sensor goes out, the ECM stores a code for that event in it's memory. You can use the Haynes Repair Manual to put the ECM into diagnostic mode and thus read any codes present.
So, all that's left is replacing what the EMC tells you too! :) Good Luck!

You have a vacuum leak,the ecm is giving too much fuel. because the manifold vacuum is low,the ecm thinks the rpm is much higher.
if you look at the throttle body injectors,you will see there is far too much fuel.the computer is also advancing the timing forward,causing the backfire.
another thing is to make sure the ground ******** the block is ok and any chassis grounds.
third ,check inside the distributor and make sure there is no magnet cracks near the rivets in the assembly,or any corrosion.

Sounds like you mixed up the spark plug wires. re check your firing order
