I'd be looking at the timing. It sounds to me like it has jumped its time and needs a new timing chain. Hope this helps.

I have a 2001 Chevy Impala 3.4 liter I am getting feel and I am getting spark when I turn the vehicle over it backfires and will not start what could cause this


As unlikely as this may be, it may have jumped time. The engine has a timing chain, not a belt....but they can still fail (normally the chain tensioner). A compression check will tell the tale. If there is are multiple cylinders that have low compression, I would suspect the timing chain/tensioner. The backfiring along with the no-start is what makes this suspicious.

2001 Chevy Impala 3.4 I just replaced the fuel pump and now when I turn the vehicle over it backfires and will not start what would cause this


Why did you replace the fuel pump? Sounds like that might not have been the issue. Timing is what causes a back fire. The timing could be off from the crank sensor or it could be a lot of other things.

Cranks backfires


That could be a timing issues when it back fires
Why ,no idea,not a question you can guess at as we do here
Could also be a vacuum leak & lean fuel mix
When you say cranks the motor turns over nothing else
Cranking has nothing to do with the motor starting or running
You have a no start & back fire as I gather

Car turns over, won't start. Backfires


pull #1 plug (you'll need someone to help you with this) have someone bump the starter till you feel the piston come up then you can use a wrench at the harmonic balancer to put piston at btdc (Before Top Dead Center)and see if the timing marks are aligned if not then you know the engine is out of time
