Car had been running fine, backfired once and lost a little power momentarily. Parked 24 hours,started right up but backfired and died. Now starts easily but dies without intense pressure on gas pedal.

Sounds like it's fouled a spark plug this happens as the plug wires fail and the power goes to ground instead of firing the fuel. The timing belt could have skipped time but the engine may run smooly but have very little power.65158335.jpgThe plug wires will act like what you say too.340881376.jpgThe boots get electrcal holes in them and they fire to the head instead of the fuel mixture and then it fires sometimes and throws everything of and they run very badly or not at all.

First part sounds like you have some leaking injectors. Second part may be related in that plugs may be fouling and spray pattern from bad injectors may be causing power problems. Check and correct injector problem first and go from there.
