SOURCE: Backfires in manifold on motor on acceleration. runs ok low speeds

Nornally reson for backfire is when intake Valve open Internal combustion in Cylinder. Pls Check Your Ignition Timing & Valve Timing. ( I think Your Timing Advancer is Defect )

SOURCE: exhaust blowing white grey smoke lots of it and

The white/grey smoke is steam (water). (from the cooling system)The engine has either blown a head gasket or there is a crack on the engine block.

Stop as soon as safely practical at home or wherever you will work on it.
Before you spend lots of money, try an engine block sealer, less than $15. Bar's Block Seal, for example. Read and follow directions carefully. You may need to apply twice. May also last for a couple of months or several years.

Otherwise, replace head gasket on affected side and/or replace engine (block).

I got my carburetor problem fixed but now it runs for a while then starts backfiring it'll shut off let's set for a couple seconds and start right back up can anybody tell me why


That sounds like a fuel/air mixture problem.

Just to confirm .. it is a carburettor, not fuel injection?

As a general rule of thumb (with carburettors..) if it backfires through the exhaust/muffler .. the fuel mixture is too rich.

If it backfires through the carb/air filter, the mixture is too weak.

It could also be a 'sticking' float in the carb.

When an engine is cold the fuel is rich .. lots of fuel .. that's how a choke works.. However, when the engine warms up a rich mixture causes problems. The car may splutter and stall, run sluggish or cut out.

Backfires when I take off


backfires to the Aircleaner (can cough or pop)
or to the end of exhaust tail pipe.
the former is bad cam or spark timing or both.
the latter is rich fuel mix and exhaust leaks.
air plus fuel equals muffler explosions. extreamly loud.

'97 540i spluttering & cutting out


best bet is to go get any codes that may be stored in the PCM. This will take alot of the guess work out of diagnosing it. Or remove the spark plgs and replace them.. If you have 50,000 or more this could be the cause but a code may tell you which one is the issue

Sluggish loss of power and popping noises from engine


Clean the distributer cap in the inside, it has water in it thus causing all the noises and the back fire.

Revs ''hunt'' on tickover, sometimes revs drop so low car cuts out


Thanks to some advice I have fixed the problem with my Granada. The pipe work from the exhaust manifold to the inlet manifold has a short piece of plastic pipe which needed replacing. This seems to have done the trick.

I would like to thank you for running this site. Without it I would still be re-starting my car each time I stop at a red light!

Low power at high revs. No coughing or spluttering and no indication that it could be cylinder head


Have you tested the fuel pressure, sounds like a plugged fuel filter if the engine runs smooth and does not mis-fire.
