Check your timing belt; if the engine camshaft is not "in time" with the crankshaft... backfiring will occur.

Check this video for idle speed adjustment. Backfiring can be caused by incorrect mixing in the carburettor or bad timing settings.

1992 Lumina Backfire - I have a 1992 Lumina Euro, 77K miles, 3.1 V-6. Under moderate to hard acceleration the engine will backfire and you can smell gas. The spark control module, coils, wires, plugs,...


I know you mentioned the EGR valve has been replaced, but you may have a bad 'new' part. I know the car is electronic, but has anyone checked its ignition timing (timing belt been looked at, I know it only has 77k on it). Is the fuel pressure regulator OK and it vacumm supply?
