Almost sounds like ignition problem... Hitting bump causing it to short out (turn off) for a second then restart can produce a backfire & hard to start. Bad gas (water in it) will cause backfire and hard to start. I would start with checking all plug and wire connections, putting in a good gas additive and water dryer. I your are injected I would Clean them up also... Try these out and go from there...

Car turns over, won't start. Backfires

pull #1 plug (you'll need someone to help you with this) have someone bump the starter till you feel the piston come up then you can use a wrench at the harmonic balancer to put piston at btdc (Before Top Dead Center)and see if the timing marks are aligned if not then you know the engine is out of time

What happens if there is air in the gasline?

Most likely cause is poor ignition timing. However, important to know whether backfire is through intake or exhaust manifold. Could be something as sinister as worn/burned valve. Probably wise to get compression pressures checked and ensure all manifolds tight and with no leaking gaskets, but all this AFTER getting ignition timing checked. Good luck!

2002 suburban 2500 hesitation backfires intermintly

Check for error codes (DTCs) before going any further. Sounds like a fuel problem (fuel pump, injectors, etc.) which may have been affected by bad gas. Try a good fuel additive (cleaner) as well.

My 2000 cavalier 2.2L has intermintant warning lights and headlights go out. Usually happens when going over bumps, shifting gears, or when putting park brake lever down or up. I think the body control...

Check the front wiring harness in front of radiator for pinholes or cracks. Also, check the wires that run underneath the battery tray. Very common problem in sunfires and cavaliers.
