Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi,if you are just changing the plugs you dont need to do the timing.
But what a lot of people do is just put the sparkplugs in without checking the electrode clearence,thay must be checked as thay could have droped and bashed around beforeit even gets on to the car spares shop shelf,so always check.
hope this was some help.

check the fireing order of your plug wires u most likeley crossed a few wires and put them in the wrong order if u r looking at the front of the vehicle the front 3 cylenders are 2,4,6 starting from the front of the moter and the back 3 cylenders are 1,3,5 and the coil packs should be marked as to wich cylendr they go to if not the startin with the top coil pack the top plug wire pin is num1 and the second is num4 the next coil pack is 5 being the top pin and 2 being the bottem pin on the coil and the last coil pack is top pin cylender 3 and bottem is cylender 6. hope this helps

SOURCE: backfiring just before it starts
Check to see if you have a crossed plug wire on truck. Also check for a cracked insulator on a spark plug or faulty spark plug wire. Check for a vacuum leak at the intake manifold, throttle body,or vacuum hose. Hope this will help you.
