Audi a4 1.8 can't start after top was overhauled is making a weird sound like backfiring the engine dont even move please help camshaft marks was done as well as pulleys and the pistons was also put on...


Back fire is only caused by intake valve being open when a spark plug fires on a cold engine.
Recheck timing marks of cams where the drive sprocket notch of each cam shaft aligns with the cam cap mark at the rear of the head.

It has been known for the crank sprocket to come loose on the crank nose and timing will be off if this is so.

1973 dodge 318 truck starts and drives fine until 35-40 mph then dies


Sounds like a fuel supply problem. Does it pop through the carberator as it it is dying, like a lean back fire? If you drove it up a hill would it die before 35 or 40 mph? If the fuel demand excedes the fuel supply the engine will die, but would restart after cranking the engine for awhile. Possibly a plugged fuel filter, fuel line, rotten fuel hose, ( sucking air ) or tired fuel pump. Hope this helps.
