You are going to have to check for fuel pressure, usually cars only backfire when they are running lean. Push in on the shrader valve on the fuel rail, and have someone crank it for a second to see if you have fuel. Also check for spark.

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It was running good but then all of a sudden it starts running rough. You can be driving down the road and all of a sudden it will die . It will run good for about 10-15...


It could be a dirty idle air control valve located on the throttle body but when you said it backfires after running a while and before stalling, this sounds like a clogged catalytic converter. When blocked they will cause the exhaust manifold to glow red igniting gasses on the exhaust stroke, backfiring. A clogged cat will result in a loss of power as if you are trying to pull a trailer full of rocks uphill.

It could be the Crank Position Sensor. But that just a guess. BUT.... they are common to go bad, buy one from the dealer, most aftermarket parts (non dealer) are not good.

1989 jeep wrangler starts jumping and backfiring


Start with the basics...meaning check the spark plug wires and spark plugs. While under the hood, inspect all hoses for a vacuum leak(s). Then turn the ignition key on-off-on-off- on...leave in the on position and write down the number of flashes the check engine light indicates....2 flashes = #2....pause.....3 flashes = #3.
Let start from here. Are you able to perform engine repairs or diagnostics???
