It sounds like the your electronic fuel injection system is pulling to many amps and is throwing a relay maybe a loose wire grounding out? you have to go through the whole electronic fuel injection system and check each wire for breaks and proper voltage

Vr commodore backfiring

This may be due to a brunt valve or misadjusted valve, the back firing is due to the intake valve being open while its firing in that cylinder.
Make sure all wires to cylinders are correct and not crossed.

My first thing i would look at is the firing order, may be a crossed wire, even if it starts and runs you may still have a crossed wire, then if firing order is correct then i would move to checking the adustment on the valves for that cylinder,
Make sure rocker arms arm tightened correctly and push rods are in correct locations. i know that some engines like the 3.1 have diffrent size push rods for the exhaust and intake, remove the valve cover and see if that valve is closed, or try a compression test on that cylinder and if it is low then you have a bad valve or it is not adjusted correctly and last the timing chain is not aligned correctly.

I'm having the same problem with my 90 2.3L Ranger. I replaced the EGR Valve back in August and the truck ran fine (but the gas mileage was bad) until late December . I knew it needed an O2 Sensor back in August but didn't replace it until last Saturday along with the Idle Air Control Valve, Plugs and Wires. The truck ran fine for a couple minutes then started running like a VW bug! My code reader is now throwing out an EGR failure code, so I guess i'll take the 4 month EGR back and get a new one, and see what that does!_549.jpg

Yes you have to have that hazard light switch (flasher) in to have indicator lights, if it will not go in, it is possible your connectors inside of the fuse box have pushed in, remove the positive battery cable and reach ot the top of the bx and push on the wires for the flasher, if they move that is the problem, just hold the wires down and push the flasher in....
