1361rt,
Is or has the service engine soon light come on? If so, take your Camaro to your local Auto Zone and ask them to scan the car for "trouble codes".
It sounds, per your description, as though you have an EGR valve carbon fouled, in which case it will need to be cleaned. It is not a difficult job to do and can be accomplished in 1 to 2 hours, less if you are a regular "DIY"er. The EGR valve (exhaust gas recirculation) should open only after the car warms up and is at highway speeds. Any time it opens before those conditions are met, the engine runs rough, bucks and backfires from the exhaust gas recirculating too soon.
I am assuming the car does this whether the car is warm or cold.
Below is a cross section of how the EGR works and the location of the EGR on your engine.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

Hi....
It sounds like it is time for a major tune up including: spark plugs, spark plug wires (if equipped), fuel injection service, clean the throttle bore, idle air passages and idle air control motor. Also replace the fuel filter and air filter.
That should be it ..... Let me know...

Thanks
Kindly rate the answer

i would recommend getting the OBD codes read as this will point to which switch/sensor/circuit is at issue , i would expect it could be the crank sensor from your description but the OBD will tell you definately what needs looking at

95 thunderbird backfiring through air intake


Something like this is often a stuck or poorly sealing valve. A Vacuum gauge is the least obtrusive way to notice vacuum changes. If a cylinder fails to seal, vacuum will reflect the loss of compression and it will result in a bounce on the meter.

Rough idle 95 astro van, I did a full tune up , plugs,wires,cap, rotor,air filter,and fuel filter and cleaned egr vavle.


I actually had to replace my EGR valve and the gasket. I clean the valve well and reused both. I don't think the gasket sealed well enough though. So I went ahead and got a new valve, gasket and changed them. It runs a lot smoother now.

95 aurora idles rough; runs somewhat smoother as it warms up; yet it backfires if I attempt to accelerate entering expressways. it drives smooth if not accelerating.


We had a similar problem. There was a crack in the air intake plenum gasket. Spraying carb cleaner around it can tell if that's the problem. It will clear up for a few seconds if it is. Not too bad to replace.

Engine starts,reaches high rpm,then slowly returns to a rough idle, misses badly,no backfire,surges as if searching/adjusting air/ fuel/est,timing light shows mark constantly changing/erratic,engine then...


Vacuum leaks. Check all hoses and intake bolts. Leaking EGR or plugged PCV valve. Air filter plugged. Leaking head gasket. Worn timing chain. Camshaft lobes worn. Valves burned or leaking. Fuel idle control system or sensor. Good luck!

95 Carmaro doesn't start and backfires


My first thought is battery replacement. Cold weather will sink a marginal battery. After jumping it, does it turn over faster, adequitly. If a battery is weak, on a cold morning, spark plugs will not get enough energy to fire. Backfire through the exhaulst can also be caused by too much gas. Make sure the choke is not stuck closed. Hope that helps l
