My guess is your timing could be off, or ^, plugs can be gaped wrong

Cranks backfires


That could be a timing issues when it back fires
Why ,no idea,not a question you can guess at as we do here
Could also be a vacuum leak & lean fuel mix
When you say cranks the motor turns over nothing else
Cranking has nothing to do with the motor starting or running
You have a no start & back fire as I gather

I have a 1995 Subaru legacy. While overtaking another vehicle, there was a loud noise, possibly a backfire and the engine died. I coasted to the side and had the car towed to a garage. I suspected a...


was the timing belt broken?

Are you sure the cams are aligned correctly?

If the belt was broken It may be wise to do a compression test. This should tell you if a valve has bent.

Its a 1995 eclipse gs. Cranks but doesnt start. The fuel pump kicks in and fuel rail has gas flowing. Its just backfires and sounds bad in general. Ive had several people look at it and no one can so


There are few possibilities that cause such problems.
No start problem,backfire issues.
I suggest you few help links related to these issues.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Have you checked Google I found this hopefully it's not your timing or it may be flooded but doubtful have you tried spraying starting fluid into the intake while cranking it

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start


Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

2000 jeep charokee 4 liter backfires


Put a vacuum gauge on it and see if you have a steady reading. You may have a bad cam lobe or partially burned valve which will show up as a quickly fluctuating vacuum reading. Backfiring is generally caused by the above or by the ignition being too far advanced (yours is not adjustable but if you had the distributor out?, you may have put it in one tooth off.)
