No... the spurt is a prime so to speak...do you have a distibutor? if so then pull the cap off...i had the exact same problem on my nissan and what happened was the o-ring on the dist. rotted out and oil leaked into the cap. if not then check you cam position sensor.. which usually is on the back side on the bell housing... neons are also notorious for oil leaks... check all the wires on the back side of the motor... oil may have deteriated them..

Van idles fine but when going the the road giving it gas it acts as if it isn't getting the proper gas ... it back fires....repleaced fuel filter and pump, crank and cam sensior


sounds like the timing is off. check the firing order to be sure your plug wires are on the correct positions on the coil packs. if that checks out, possibly a timing chain may need replaced. i hope this helps

Idles fine in park. shift in any gear and give gas and it seems to bog out no power, keep giving it gas and it wants to backfire through intake. After heavy wind and rain. ignition timing? also perhaps...


Engine problem may be bad fuel pump or clogged fuel pump filter, Park issue check linkage adjustment unless you got it parked in such a way that the frame is twisted? try rolling it back a little then stop and put in park see if that works.

Car was parked and running and just killed on its own and will not start. does this sound like the fuel pump or maybe fuel filter?


If the battery is strong and charged, starter is fine, car ran okay while getting progressively worse until it died and won't restart now, might be fuel filter or pump. I've dealt with two cars with fuel filter issues. Both would idle fine, but run progessively worse under load and eventually die and not start although everything else checked out. Engine turned fast enought to start, battery strong, alternator fine, air cleaner clean, all that. No start. Changed fuel filters and done. Everything back to normal. Both cars were about model year 1990 (1989 and 1991). Replaced one in a parking lot and car fired right back up and powered on home just fine, whereas the week leading up to it it ran worse and worse, hesitated on acceleration and finally would die if you hit the gas. Fuel filter may be in engine compartment. Looks like a canister with an in and an out for fuel. Pump is in gas tank and is way more work and money. Good luck, hope this helps.

HAD CORE PACK REPLACED IN JUNE 09. EVERY SINCE CAR


Maybe the fuel pump is going out have the fuel pressure checked. Or you have a defective coil pack. You should have taken it back to who ever put the coil pack on, right away when you first started having trouble.

Engine backfires when accelerating, idles rough but runs fine over 50+ miles per hour.


Idle is rough because not a right Air/ Gas mixture.
The ideal air /gas ratio is 14.6:1. If less than that it has rich mixture. If it more then that it has a lean mixture.
Back fire happens when accelerated because of of rich mixture pumped out at exhaust cycle is burning.
At speed above 40 miles/hour, temperature and fast compression cycle make the problem is less obvious.
Cheap first shot is to replace the air filter to correct this ratio. If it doesn't help, need Fuel distributor service. ( However people like to make easy money from you first, they will convince you for a turn up) Good Luck. I'll check back to see how the progress going.
