Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan
2004 Dodge Caravan started backfiring under the hood upon starting. Hard to start, doesn't want to turnover, it isn't the starter or battery.
Timing belt/chain slipped.. check the cap rotor after lining up the timing mark on tdc and see if its not out some..

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 )

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.
