88 Toyota Corolla backfires through carburetor.


If that is carbureted, and has a mechanical fuel pump, try running a length of fuel line from inlet side of pump to a gas can that has fresh, clean fuel, and if it runs good that way, you know problem is most likely in the tank. Removing the tank & cleaning it out is best solution from there. I'd even be tempted to add a small bottle or 2 of Lucas Fuel Sytem Cleaner to first fill in clean tank, just to help clean lines as well as carb.

96 Camaro Z28 with a V8 that intermitantly stalls while driving.


if it dies in a slow manner like fuel look at fuel pump AND relay. relays will get resistance build up and do weird stuff.Fuel pumps (especially gm)will get thermal breakdown(motor gets hot and decides to quit until cool off) If it is like you turned the key off and it rather violently stops--then that would be the module or coil or some ignition related area.
