Probably one of the coils. There was a major recall for 4 and 6 cyl engines with faulty coils.

Why would my 1999 dodge caravan backfire when i give it gas

sounds like you have a bad coil pack this will cause the motor to miss on 1 or more cylinders thus causing the backfire you are describing this is more than likely your problem, another thing it could also be is water in your gas this will also cause a backfire due to the engine trying to burn the water that is coming thru your fuel lines but more than likely it will be your coil pack hope this helps.

2.9L bronco 2 will not idle without missing and backfiring was running good done all at once

It sounds like your timing belt jumped a tooth. You'll have to realign your camshaft to crankshaft and change your timing belt. Also, did you recently fill up?

98 ford zx2 2.0 dohc stalls out woulnt idle long & doesnt pick up power when you push gas if you push gas fast will backfire.will gain rpms if gas is pushed slow

It sounds like you may have a clogged-up catalytic converter. Try cracking the exhaust loose at the flange in front of the engine where the Catalytic converter bolts to the exhaust manifold. You don't have to take it all the way down, just 1/2" or so. You may have to take the bolt loose on the bracket where the pipe mounts to the oil pan to get the cat to drop down. After you get it down a ways, start it up and see if it runs better. (It will be very loud) If it idles and accelerates without dying or backfiring, then your cat is clogged up.

Engine has miss at idle but cuts out and backfires when you give it gas.

sounds like the timing may have jumped or it could be the coil pac. I would check out this one first and then move on to the timing.
