I Have a 1995 Dodge Ram truck and it will once in awhile make popping noises or backfires through exhaust,then i lose power. but if i let off the accelerator it's ok until i step on the pedal,even if i peg it to the floor. I changed my spark plugs,but it still happens.Like i said though it doesn't happen all the time just occasionally.

Clean the distributer cap in the inside, it has water in it thus causing all the noises and the back fire.

I accidently drove my 2000 Dodge Stratus through 1 foot of standing water. Will my engine be damaged


If your engine didn't die, it'll be fine. If the engine did die, it will probably start and run fine if it's allowed to sit for a time so that it can dry itself out. THAT is IF your engine simply got a little wet so as to cause the ignition system to fail. What can be pretty bad, though, is if the car is allowed to sit for an extended period of time in deep water.... or the water is deep enough or splashed hard enough that your air intake for your engine starts sucking in water. If it was only a foot of water, and you weren't going fast, things should be okay. If your air intake has sucked in quite a bit of water, your engine probably needs professional care.

There is no way on this earth that you would be able to drive a car with a broken timing chain. The engine would stop immediatly if the chain broke and there would probably be some very expensive collateral damage as well. Any timig chain can be replaced, but it may include replacement of things like tensioners, guides, sprockets, several valves and possibly even pistons - basically a complete engine overhauls.
