Backfiring out the exhaust pipes is a classic symptom of camshaft timing out of time ... meaning you probably have a timing chain or belt that either jumped one or more teeth, or the cross ribs came off the belt in certain areas of the timing belt. Gear driven camshafts hardly ever get out of time, but timing chains can, and timing belts are the worst offenders by far for that problem!

Chevy venture stalled

Compression, spark , timing , fuel for any engine to run. Don't forget a stopped up catalytic convertor will have the same effect as you described. Backfiring of course is fouled plugs, bad plug wires, look for arcing from wires when it is dark outside. If it has a distributor check for cracked cap, had my 91 GMC start backfiring then die due to ignition module inside distributor going bad. It would start back up after it cooled for about 10 minutes.

Backfire, from tail pipe, every 2 seconds

sounds like the timing belt has jumped a tooth or two and is causing pre- ignition in the combustion chamber of the cylinder head. Have timing belt alignment marks checked.

1996 jeep larado driving me crazy

Cars are like that. I think they like driving people crazy. I\'ve been driven crazy by my Sentra for three months now.
Has the fuel pressure been checked? I wonder if your fuel pressure regulator has failed (the diaphragm inside will rupture and suck extra gas in through the vacuum hose attached to the regulator-could be the cause of backfiring). Something to check, anyway.

96 chevy blazer turns over but wont start

It needs at least 60psi fuel pressue to start. You need to check fuel pressure with a gauge.
If the dist cap or rotor is bad, the spark will not be on the right plug at the right time. Same goes for a faulty distributor or a problem with the timing chain. And the ignition module.
Also check the ecm for trouble codes.

2.4 pontiac wont start but cranks over

Do a compression test as a malfunctioning valve can cause back fire through the carbie. Since you have changed all the wires double check you have them in the right order because if they are wrong you could get a backfire.
