PLEASE HELP 2006 colt 1.5 diesel why is the exhaust hitting rear axle only when starting the engine??? thanks JIM


check the hanger and brackets for missing or broken/bent --also check the heat shield may be out of place --start up is when the engine shakes and vibrates the most --when idling it smooths out and the engine mounts take up the smaller vibrations

Have a 1991 Buick Lasabre won't start and backfires very very loud


backfire is a timing issue ,if its to far advanced it will back fire out intake ,if it backfires out exhaust its to far retarted ,you may have a bad timing gear,and or chain or belt, start by checking timing if you can get it running infact go over ignition system to look for other problems

My 99 chevy blazer 4x4 misses and shuts off some times back fires through the exhaust


Usually, an engine that backfires thru the exhaust is a sign of ignition problems.
Assuming you have the standard 4.3 V6, you should have a flat distributor cap and standard rotor.
I would start there.
The cap could be shorting out inside and making the coil fire the wrong plugs at the wrong time.
It could also be other issues with the distributor or the ign module.

Back firing out of the intake is because the valves/cams are not set right. When you did the timing belt . did you set the crankshaft mark at top dead center of the compression stroke. If it's at the exhaust stroke this would cause backfiring and violent shaking.

Had the head redone, new Carb fitted, new distributor cover and leads new spark plugs, crank timing set to mark (0)and cam timing (2e)set to mark on head. the engine swings, fires from the carb, spark on...


Sounds like you have your timing off. If it is backfiring, that means that 2 of your wires are crossed, causing the plugs to fire on the exhaust stroke versus the compression stroke. Recheck your timing.

Change spark plugs and now car wont start.....1994 ford tarus


Do you have the "firing order" correct? In other words, is each spark plug wire going to the same cylinder it was on before you changed the plugs? If you have done nothing else but changed the plugs then this is the most likely problem.
If when you try to start the car it backfires through the exhaust or backfires through the intake. Then this " IS" the problem. Good luck.
