Wont start but backfires


Almost certainly the engine timing is out by a tooth or 3 on the timing belt. They do slip if worn. Hard starting and backfiring tells the story.

Would a bad timing chain or timing belt make the engine shake


It could if its bad enough, but it will also display other problems as well. Hard start when hot, pre-ignition loss of power.

I change the engine on the car and it's bacfireing and hard to start with backfireing at all the time but it's runing it run fine


This sounds like a crossed sparkplug wire, start by making sure the firing order is correct, if theres a sparkplug wire in the wrong spot this would cause hard starting and the backfiring, so check the firing order first, i would of given you a firing order diagram but you forgot to list the year, make , model and the engine size. good luck and have a good day.

Car had been running fine, backfired once and lost a little power momentarily. Parked 24 hours,started right up but backfired and died. Now starts easily but dies without intense pressure on gas pedal.


Sounds like it's fouled a spark plug this happens as the plug wires fail and the power goes to ground instead of firing the fuel. The timing belt could have skipped time but the engine may run smooly but have very little power.65158335.jpgThe plug wires will act like what you say too.340881376.jpgThe boots get electrcal holes in them and they fire to the head instead of the fuel mixture and then it fires sometimes and throws everything of and they run very badly or not at all.

Sudden loss of power, Backfiring, starts then stalls


Your timing belt could be broken. You want to have this checked as soon as possible to prevent any further engine problems.
