My 1998 ford exedition back fire when i start it do you know why it do that and whats gonna happen if it keep doing it

You have a timing issue. The spark advance is igniting at the incorrect time, with relation to piston and valve position.
The engine will begin to overheat and eventually will seize. The timing chain and gears need replaced. Approx. Cost is $5-700.00 at most repair shops.
