1997 mountaineer backfires hesitates

I would check fuel pressure first.
According to the parts book that engine could have a distributor or two coil packs. If it has a distributor with a cap and rotor those parts could be faulty.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

My ford was spitting and sputtering and backfiring. i changed the plugs and wires, made sure of the gap, and it ran fine for a few days . thought my problem was fixed and then it started doing it again...

Use a gas treatment with a full tank of premium gas and see if it clean out your fuel system. It could also be your MAF sensor. There are ways to clean them but you have to be careful not to damage it.

My car still back fires even though my timing marks arew in line how do i solve this problem

I don't know if that is the only problem that your car is having, but usually when a vehicle backfires it shows other symptoms, if it backfires you should also check the catylytic convertor to make sure that it isn't plugged up also, if it is you will eventually lose power and use alot of gas.

My car takes a few seconds to start but does start it has alot of white smoke that comes out when you finally get it started and it backfires sometimes it also fluctuates rmp's when its idling and...

White smoke is what color exhaust is when your burning antifreeze.The antifreeze is making the plugs wet and hard to start.You need to have your car checked for a head gasket.

Transmission moves when I step on the gas hard. It's like the lines are clogged.

The transmission moves? In what way? If under hard acceleration your motor mounts could need looking at. Put vehcle in gear parking brake on foot on brake pedal and give it some gas then sudenly let up on gas. If you feel a thud, the tigh motor mount is probably your culprit. You can test the left mount same way but be extra carefull, your psrking brake won't hold as well so use the foot brake when accelerating . Acceleration need not be alot, just enough to make it do what you feel or hear. Motor mounts are not a major problem. good luck

Gas consumption

Is this a new problem? If so, I'd check/replace the catalytic converter. They clog if bad gas gets into them. Performance is usually affected. If the car has alot of mileage, replace all the oxygen sensors...they affect fuel mix. Change your oil to a 5-20 oil. Change your air filter. Change your plugs if more than 70K miles. Check tire pressure (Mr. Obama is right!) Check wheel alignment by looking at tire wear. Repair any loose front end parts. Check brakes for excessive drag...does the vehicle stop straight???? Use Techron additive to clean fuel injectors following instructions. Finally, do you use your brakes alot? Fast starts? On/off the gas alot? Drive smoothly!
