! Your injectors are floading the engine with too much gas. may be an injector stuck open, but not all of the fuel is burning in the engine and its running into the exhaust system, A hot catalytic converter ignites the excess fuel causing it to ignite and spark out your tail pipe. It can cause a huge fire. Dont drive it until its fixed.

SOURCE: 2003 saturn ion 1 spark plug hole is stripped

I recommend you have this repaired by a mechanic as they have special tools that can assist in making the repair. You can get what is called a Boss repair kit from Auto Zone that you can use to make the repair yourself however it's not the simplest repair and in an engine that new it is most likely aluminum which means it will be very easy to damage beyond repair if you aren't careful.

How do i test a coil pack on a 2003 Saturn ION 2.2 L engine?


Its not the safest way but, you take a long screw driver and stick it in to each spark plug boot(one at a time) and hold the metal shaft of the driver about 1/4 inch away from the engine block and have someone turn the motor over. Then, all you do is look for the spark. If you dont see it, the plug isnt getting spark.

2003 dodge 2500 diesel backfires and destroys


Well, usually when a proper running vehicle backfires through the exhaust its caused by an excess in fuel building up in the pipe and igniting. Some newer diesle trucks will spray fuel into the exhaust to clean the emissions and reduce smoke coming out of the tail pipe. You could have a bent or sticking valve that is allowing extra fuel out into the exhaust, or when it went to clean the exhaust (If your model does that) the exhaust might not have been hot enough to ignite the fuel until you put a load on it causing the exhaust temp to jump igniting all the fuel in the tail pipe.
