Hi

it sounds like it is getting too much air, check all air pipes and make sure the air system is sealed with no rips or tears in the air pipes, after market none genuine air filters such as k&n would cause this if the car was not set up right to take one.

try and stave the engine of air by covering up air intakes if the engine runs then it is getting to much air. if it dies then it could be getting to much fuel, but I would go for the air test first.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

Why would a VW air cooled engine backfire while idling.


Check the point gap, file ,clean and adjust.Point/ condenser, New cap and rotor, wires and plugs , all for good spark. Unburnt fuel igniting is a backfire, Tune up vehicle and if that doesn't work, then you need to check valve lash.

1991 Ford F-350 runs rough at cold start, dies if gas peddle depressed?


because the combustion inside the engine is going wrong the quantity of air getting inside is not the needed quantity maybe less than or more in cold will cause such problem once the engine warm up than the engine temperature is up you will not find this problem because the point of firing will be near

1990 Chevy Van with a 350 small block that has a mind of it's own.


Try to get it running a bit to warm up the exhaust. Take a point and shoot thermometer and take the temp of the cat. If temps exceed 400 degrees I would start to suspect a plugged cat.

What's the sign of a bad cat converter on a 1999


If the cat is clogged, blocking exhaust flow, the car may start normally, and may run fine while the engine is cold. Within a few mins as engine warms it will start to bog down and die when you try to acellerate, even a little. May even die out if you give it gas, while it may idle just fine.
This has been my experice in 2 different cars of different types over the years.

Cold weather won't idle, engine dies


Please check your idle controller whch is normally located near the air intake.Sometimes cleaning them and putting them back solve this problem.

03 winstar won't start, shakes ,back fires, fires 3times dies.


More than one issue, maybe? Also consider other experts' solutions.

First, it sounds like the EGR valve is sticking open. The exhaust valve is supposed to be closed when idling, otherwise open. It recirculates exhaust back into the manifold; can't idle car very well when the valve is open, but should not cause backfire.

Backfire, is generally an ignition timing issue: the ECM (electronic control module) is responsible for that. Check it / replace it.

Worst case: small break in one of the head gaskets (not likely, but symptom is the same).

Vacuum leak, too???

Hope this gets you pointed in the right direction!
