Timing is off,problem with timing chain,also check fluids in ******,plus also if you have a distributer in your vehicle,if it is cracked,moisture getting in and ruining the points,-that is if your vehicle has a distributer! This will make a vehicle run rough as well.
You can have new plugs put in,but if your spark plug wires are cracked or worn,this will also creat misfire and backfiring.

Had water pump and timing belt changed car ran good before the change. just installed new plugs and wires . car idles horrible.runs good over 1000 rpms but when you stop car idles extremely rough. is it...

it could be a broken or unhooked vacum line but i really am gonna go with the timing being out a couple of teeth it thats the case the car would idle rough and and stumble plus lack a bit of power on take off. if the timing is off the comptuer will compasate for that and advance the firing on the coil the comp uses a few different sencer's to determine when to fire it uses the cam shaft postion scencer and the crankshaft scencer you should have the timing rechecked by a different shop and see what they say for sure but be suer to tell them that you work done on the vechile.

Rough idle,backfires when eccelerating,feels like running on 3 cylinders,changed plugs no difference.what else can i do?

Clean the idle air control valve in the throttle body and you should also check fuel pressure and test the throttle position sensor. Another thing that you will want to do is to check the timing.

Having rough idle and backfiring!

Still have a wire crossed somewhere. That is why you are getting the backfiring. Recheck firing order and make sure it is correct.

2000 Eclipse wont start, fuel in plugs

I hate to be the one to tell you this but if there is fuel,oil,water getting into your plugs than you have bad rings. the vehicle will not start because it is not getting enough compression to do so. If you love the car and would like it to run again it will cost about $1000.00 to have the rings done if not more. But since there is water than fuel getting into your plugs than it is a defenent sign that your rings are bad.
