'68 Plymouth 318 4 brl carb is popping and backfiring. What could be the problem?


Cranking at a slower speed is often a sign of being out of time. That might explain the popping and backfiring, too. You need to use a timing light. Make sure it is set to specs. If it is set at the correct time, and the advance is working (you can check that also with the timing light), and the problem still exists, then I would recommend doing a compression test of the cylinders, to spot any problem with the engine's mechanical condition.

When you put new points on, did you also use a new condenser? You certainly should. And since the points burnt out, how about the spark plugs, do they need changing as well? Part of a tune-up is to make sure the gap on the spark plugs is correct.

If you are inclined to work on your car, buy a vacuum gauge for just a few dollars. These are real handy for the older cars. Here is a link on how useful it can be:
hmm, little difficulty...go to secondchancegarage.com , look at their menu and choose "How to Use and Interpret a Vacuum Gauge". A neat little tutorial on what you can see from a vacuum reading.

Timming setting for a 1968 plymouth fury 111 with 318 engine


Factory setting was 2 degrees advanced, but most ran far better at 4-6 degrees. Limit on timing is how far you can go without hearing any detonation when you "get on it" under a load. When you reach that point, back off a few degrees. Advancing the timing lights the fuel in the cylinders early. At speed, the time it has to fully burn is very short. The sooner you light it, the better the chance that all fuel is converted into usable energy instead of going out the exhaust. The limiting factor in this is fuel quality as most available fuels are nowhere near the quality they were when your engine was produced.

The van is spitting and sputring and has no power


No check engine light on? When was last tune-up? When was fuel filter last changed? I think I'd have fuel pressure tested first, then go from there. No sense throwing new parts on if fuel pressure is low. Change fuel filter if it is low, and if that doesn't bring pressure up to specs, then you'll need a new fuel pump. If fuel pressure is good, get a free scan for trouble codes at one of the big autoparts stores, and get back to me/us with results, if fix is not obvious.

1996 plymouth voyager mini van engine stays on, 500.00 complete tune has been done engine light went off but came back on less then a mile from Pep Boys.


A tune up in most cases has nothinf to do with a check engine light, unless the engine is missing, go to Autozone or Kragen auto and ask to have the OBD system checked for trouble codes, then post them here and we will look at them, the test by the way is free.
