Either a Fuel Delivery problem or an Air intake problem. Possibly spark. Try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQGSkWEC_u4

SOURCE: 99 jeep wrangler 4.0 backfires and hesitates

Fairly common problem. Typical scenario is start vehicle, runs fine for 15 to 30 seconds and begins to backfire when placed under load as customer tries to drive vehicle. Flooring usually makes the problem go away. Usually does not throw a code.

Fix is to replace the upstream 02 sensor.

SOURCE: backfiring and loss of power

'till you do some in depth testing of all systems, I'd place equal weight on every possibility. Make sure you cover the basics like fuel filter etc before getting crazy with it though. Also check cap. rotor, coil and wires. Idle cylinder pressure is different than that encountered when driving. This additional pressure will cause ignition spark to seek a better easier ground,(not the spark plugs where it should be going) causing missing under load.After checking , if you haven't found anything, its time to begin testing fuel pump pressures, modules and controls.
good luck

SOURCE: backfire into intake

I'ts quite possible that your distributor is installed one tooth off and is too far advanced, causing the plug to fire before the intake valves are closed completely. Turn it one tooth counter-clockwise and try it again.

SOURCE: The engine has no compression,when try to start

Hello osmanmackoy; My name is Roger and I will help you. First have you done a compression test? If so the compression must be over 100 psi. in order for the cylinder to fire. This would be a bare minimum. I would also look at the oil pump drive unit. This would be located where the distributor would have been on the older engines. There is a sensor mounted on the top of the drive. Remove the sensor and check the inner shaft. There should be no side to side play in the shaft.If the shaft moves side to side You need to replace it. This sensor is used by the computer to tell what cylinder to fire. The computer will not know which cylinder is next to fire. This will cause a no start or backfire condition.
Please rate the quality of the answer given as this way we know the answer was helpful. Should you need further help Please just ask . Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

The only matter there should be in the throttle body is air. The throttle body in no way has anything other than "nothing" in it. The liquid you see could be the gasoline you threw into the throttle body.

Getting back to your problem. Do NOT have someone looking down the throttle body while you are trying to start the engine. That person may receive a haircut he will never forget! Get the battery charged. Try to start the engine because even though you think you put too much gas in the throttle body, it may start.

The tricky part. If the engine starts and runs for a few seconds, then you are having a problem with fuel delivery and that is the fuel pump most of the time but not always.. If it does not start at all, try one more time to pour gasoline into the throttle body, hold your foot about 1/2 way down on the pedal and then try again to start it. If it still doesn't start, it's time to check for spark.

You need to clean the IAC again and also the throttle valve and bore, use only CRC brand Throttle body cleaner. After they are thoroughly cleaned disconnect the battery for 5 min's and then drive the car in varying condition for a few days. If that doesn't cure the issue you have more serious problems and will need a scan tool to look into the readings from the MAF, TPS and ECT sensors. High idle cold start is normal then slowly dropping after a few minutes. I assume you never had a check engine light. Correct?

Electronic Throttle Control Indicator Light dodge caliber 2007


Stop using the car--period

Have it checked for codes,road tested &
diagnosed

I think you have very bad ignition coils that
put it into failsafe

They are so bad they spike the computer &
take out the throttle postion sensor signal &
you get ETC Failsafe

Can't use it like that-- it will ruin the exhaust converter

Check engine light


The lightning bolt light indicates you have an issue with your electronic throttle control system.

This should be repaired ASAP so you don't end up with a run away engine, or one that does on you when you need to get going quick.

Engin stops sometimes when I slow down, usely starts back up and run fine. Now I am at home it starts then stops, now it turns over but will not start and run.


it has a dirty throttle body. get some carb cleaner and a tooth brush.remove air cleaner hose at the throttle body. block open throttle to wide open {engine off of course} or have someone hold it to the floor.spray cleaner into body and scub with tooth brush especially were the throttle plat touches the bore when at idle and the throttle plate itself.spray brush,spray,brush. put hose back on and start engine. you might have to give it some gas to atart it then its going to run rough for a few seconds but it will clear up.slowly lower foot from gas pedal and allow to idle.put in reverse let run in reverse for a few seconda do the same with drive.it has now began to learn what position the stepper motor should be in when throttle is not depressed.it may stumble a couple of times at sops but will soon correct itself
