CHECK FOR YOUR SPARK HT LEADS IF ARE CORRECT IN FIRING ORDER. CHECK FOR YOUR CRANKSHAFT SENSOR,OR CAM SHAFT SENSOR. ALSO DO AGAIN A DOUBLE CHECK FOR YOUR TIMING MARKS AND FITTING.

SOURCE: wont start

Make sure that you're getting spark. A very common thing on these engines are coils going bad. If you can verify spark, check to make sure you have an injector pulse. As you rotate the engine, look inside of the throttle body and make sure that you see fuel pulsing into the engine. You can still have good pressure but you don't have an injector pulse, the fuel still cant get into the engine. You can use a test light as well to test for an injector pulse. One wire going to the injector will have constant power and the other will blink when the engie is rolled over. Does it start if you spray starting fluid into the throttle body? If it does, it's a fuel delivery problem. Again be sure you have spark from coil to distributor and plugs. You can remove the ignition module and take it to NAPA and they have a module tester. Have them test the module several times not just once. This will eliminate the possibilites of an intermitted problem. Let me know how it does. tiqautoperformance@live.com

SOURCE: 88 Nissan z24i backfires through throttle body and loses power when in gear

Check your intake and exhaust modules. I have a 1987 D21 and had the same problem (if I understand your post). I replaced the modules located behind the driver side headlights and it fixed the problem. Good luck! I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Chevy 454 back fire

Ignition timing is set by the computer as long as the distributor pickup point is within reason.

It could be running too lean. One of the TBI injectors may be sticking or not working (wiring or computer problem), or fuel pressure could be low.

it may not be a vacumn leak from a line,check the throttle shaft for movement,for example,i had a 89 1 ton 350 and my throttle shaft was moving around a lot and in order to keep it from idling high,i had to kick the throttle pedal.But also check the idle air control valve,which is the round sensor on the side of the throttle body.

SOURCE: 5.3 chevy hesitates when cold runs fine after warming up

I have same problem, Chevy told me it was probably a seal affecting fuel air ratio and when warm seal expanded to stop air leak. I forget which seal but they also said to check plastic case around seal because it will warp and may also need to be replaced. It was located near top center of engine. Please let me know if you figure it out.

Backfire through the exaust and hessitation


Backfire is the result of unburned fuel in the exhaust igniting. I would look at the timing. Could be out enough for this to be the cause. Good starting point in my opinion. Not usually a plug issue.

1988 k1500 backfires and almost dies when warmed up and on highway when giving more gas


Usually when you get a backfire thru the intake the problem is timing or a lean fuel mixture.
If you are sure the ignition system is in good condition, I would have the fuel pressure tested.
You could also have a vac leak that is random, or a problem with the throttle position sensor. But if the sensor has failed you should get a trouble code and check engine light.

My 88 chevy cheyenne has a problem with a fast idle. I don't know how to slow it down. It is a fuel injection throttle body set up. I can't afford to just start replacing parts till I find the problem. Any...


One easy thing you can try is spray some carb.or brake cleaner around the throttle body area.The gaskets on these were known to go out and this will cause a fast idle.The other thing is make sure the throttle cable or linkage is not sticking or binding.Hope this helps.Good luck.Let me know what you find out.

I have an 88 chevy truck, not getting fuel out of inector


I had a similar problem on an 84 Lincoln Mark VII. Found out it was a ground wire that had broken running from the wiring harness to the fender well. The wire was broken inside the shielding and not visible. You might consider going through and checking all of the plug connections for corrosion as well. This may not solve the problem but certainly easy to check.

Check for exhaust leaks. Esp Leaks toward the front of the car. Hold your hand over the tail pipe using a rag and see where the loud hissing noise comes from. Repair the leaks and I bet the backfiring goes away

Good Luck

Timing a pontiac 6000le 2.5 engine


first check to be sure the vavuum lines at the throttle body are in there correct places.
on the main pulley of your engine, the one on the crank shaft there will be a little notch on it. mark the notch with some chalk or a dab of white paint. then loosen the bolt that holds down the distributor until you can turn the distributor. turn the distributor a little bit, snug the bolt up and try it. once you have the car running you will need a timing lite to set the timing to the correct timing mark. which should be 8 degrees before top dead center for you car.
