Hi, missfiring cylinder possibly due to fouled spark plug, ignition timing incorrect (leads swapped around). The reason for the backfire is unburnt fuel accumulates in the very hot exhaust system and ignites there.
Take care

How to fix a backfiring on a 1983 Chrysler 5th avenue edition new Yorker


If it is backfiring, it is likely that the timing belt slipped a notch and needs to be replaced. Backfiring can cause MAJOR DAMAGE to that old engine so please don't drive it if it's backfiring!

Check this video for idle speed adjustment. Backfiring can be caused by incorrect mixing in the carburettor or bad timing settings.

What would cause my 1996 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with a 350 Vortec engine to backfire on occassion when I crank it?


The distributors on these GM trucks should be replaced at least once a year. Any check engine light on? The crank sensor can cause it to backfire as well.

Suzuki F6a engine backfiring and wont start


Most of the time an engine that backfires is out of time. I would
check this first, as this is the problem 95% of the time. It could
also be bad fuel, a bad catalytic converter (rare) A bad coil or igniton module will definatly cause it. A fuel injector that is spraying excessive
fuel out will cause an engine to backfire. Burned or leaking
valves will cause it (rare).

Hi I'm new to this site , I have been asked to close Q I have asked already but don't know how on my iPhone to close then please help


There are two kinds of backfires, one is produced from the engine air intake and the other is produced from the tail pipe of the exhaust system. The cause for a backfire condition can vary depending on the malfunction of a particular system. Some backfires can be extreme enough to cause damage to related components. Anytime a backfire is observed immediately diagnose and repair as needed. If the engine is running rough it can produce a backfire. A backfire occurs when there is an imbalance in the air to fuel ratio required for your vehicle to operate properly. If the fuel mixture is too lean (not enough fuel) you may have a backfire in the intake manifold gasket, or too rich (too much fuel) you may get a backfire out of the exhaust system. It is important to observe the location of the backfire.

What causes the 2002 nissan se r to backfire


Sounds like an ignition or timing problem.
Is the check engine light on ?
This engine uses a direct ignition system which means each cylinder has a coil on top of the spark plug. It could be as simple as worn out spark plugs.
If you had said the engine backfired and was hard to start, but no flooding, I would also look at low fuel pressure. But too much fuel causes flooding.
A faulty throttle position sensor could cause all of your symptoms, but it should set a trouble code and turn on the check engine light.

I have a 97 jeep cherokee that stalls and backfires and it has backfired to the point where it blew open my muffler. It doesn't backfire all the time, just at times...what can it be?


It's not possible to pinpoint, with just online info, what is causing the backfire, but if it blew your muffler open, the engine is definitely dumping raw fuel into the exhaust. Look into what can cause excessive fuel to be dumped into the exhaust and you may find the cause of your problem.

Backfiring on acceleration of a 2002 GMC with 6.0 Engine


Backfires are usually caused by a lack of fuel...change the fuel filter. Also very old spark plugs (or plugs gapped to wide ) will cause this problem.
