Question about 1990 Chevrolet Cavalier
Check your intake manifold gasket as it may have over heated as well; check the gasket between the mainfold gasket and carb/throttle body as it's a fuel injected unit?

Hi: Well when it was over Heating before you shut it off, It could be possible that it jumped the timing .Or if it was Real HOT I've had a Man that had a Similar Problem ,and when it was over Heating the water was just going every where, Well with His I found that i guess when the water go on the Distributor Cap it put a Vertical Crack in it, And that was causing his Back Firing. Not saying thats what wrong with yours.Could you have maybe accindently knock a Spark Plug Wire or 2 Off? Or Have you Checked your Air Filter to see if it was Watered down when the Hose Blew,Hey I'm Just Giving You some Ideas on Possible Problems. Crank it at Night time also and let it run if it will and take a look under your hood at ALL areas in Your Engine Compartment to See if you notice any Arching.Please let me know if any of this Helped By Voting at 1st on my Level of Assistance and send a Meesage to me on FIXYA. Good Luck my Friend; From The WYOCWBOY
