'68 Plymouth 318 4 brl carb is popping and backfiring. What could be the problem?


Cranking at a slower speed is often a sign of being out of time. That might explain the popping and backfiring, too. You need to use a timing light. Make sure it is set to specs. If it is set at the correct time, and the advance is working (you can check that also with the timing light), and the problem still exists, then I would recommend doing a compression test of the cylinders, to spot any problem with the engine's mechanical condition.

When you put new points on, did you also use a new condenser? You certainly should. And since the points burnt out, how about the spark plugs, do they need changing as well? Part of a tune-up is to make sure the gap on the spark plugs is correct.

If you are inclined to work on your car, buy a vacuum gauge for just a few dollars. These are real handy for the older cars. Here is a link on how useful it can be:
hmm, little difficulty...go to secondchancegarage.com , look at their menu and choose "How to Use and Interpret a Vacuum Gauge". A neat little tutorial on what you can see from a vacuum reading.

Backfire mgb not starting?


Backfire when trying to start a motor is associated with rich running, (too much fuel or unburnt fuel), retarded timing, carbon arcs in the distributor cap, intermittent dirty points, spark plug wires out of order and jumped or skipped timing chains.

2005 chevy equinox runs rough between approx 38 and 45 miles per hour. Changed plugs and wires as well as cleaned fuel injectors.


Please elaborate on "runs rough"
Is it slipping gears.... hesitating on acceleration... missing... smoking... backfiring?

Thanks!!

Skipping and Popping. 4.6 v8


It sounds like you have a miss fire event going on. look for spark jumping from the plug wires to the engine or any metal object. Best way to see is start you truck at night open the hood you should be able to see the spark jumping
