I would suggest a complete tune-up and also make sure you have no gas leaks.

1986 pontiac 6000 2.5L. backfired 2 times then quit

I owned an '87 Chev.Celebrity once, from about year 2000 to 2005, thereabouts,. one of my favorite cars. It had the 2.5L, too. A sister car to your 6000. Mine had been a taxi in Great Falls, MT, so it had had a super good maintenance schedule followed fanatically. I'm pretty sure the engine had been replaced not too many years before I bought it with 250,000 miles on the odometer, from a private individual. Was sure a nice car, and the odometer made it past 400,000 miles, with reverse gear gone out the last two years I drove it. (True story: always got 26-27 MPG from the day I bought it. When reverse went out, I started getting 30 MPG- I figured I eased up some friction-lol,) By then the engine was sending signals it was tired and going down too. I thought it wasn't worth repairing considering the cost involved, so off to the crusher!
Backfiring can be a symptom of valve train problems. Especially so, if the engine is getting only the required amount of gas to run good. The 2.5L has a timing gears set-up, no timing belt or chain, so if not noisy, probably good. Check your timing with a timing light. Look at the cone pattern of the fuel spray out the injectors-look down the throat of the throttle body with someone cranking the car over, the gas should be spraying out in a fine mist cone pattern-if it drips or runs, it's getting too much gas. If it looks good, well, how many miles on it? You might want to do a compression test to see about the internal condition.

What does cons1 13.4 mpg mean ?

Only means your getting 13.4 Miles Per Gallon of fuel. My old '86 Toyota Pickup has gotten as high as 33 mpg once, and I personally built this truck, but gets a consistent 23 to 27 mpg.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Change your fuel filter, it may have gone it's life time and is getting to dirty to let fuel flow properly. Your fuel pump to may be getting weak, if the fuel filter is dirty the pump works harder and heats up and could be over heating the fuel pump relay too. The fuel pump relay i believe is in the glove box behind a panel that say relay, there should be (3) in there and the middle one is the fuel pump's. switch then around after you change the fuel filter and if you get a chance, check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Good luck and hope this help's if there is a Auto Zone around you, you can ask to use the fuel pressure gauge to see what fuel pressure you have and they'll have the step by step instructions on how to do it and takes about 5 min to do and will have the fuel filter and step by step to replace that too. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

Engine Floods after brief start and run when cold -then shut off

Local mechanic determined engine was flooded and started it by holding throttle to the floor and cranking 5-7 seconds - then the engine sputtered to life. It has run perfectly before and since and I'm at a bit of loss to understand why this occurred this one time - so far. It's been driven now 5 days with no problems.
