SOURCE: engine runs fine most of time then once in a while

It is best that you make a scanner to see if it gives you some code and do not keep changing parts for pleasure I recommend that if you measure the pressure of the gas pump when you feel the decision would be good for my doubts. Thanks

I bought a 89 ford bronco it will back fire through the fuel injection when you give it gas but not all the time


sounds like it is running lean. Check engine light on?

You mean backfiring through the intake manifold right?

A tip in hesitation or backfire is usually a lean condition. If you have a MAF sensor, clean the inside exposed wires with carb cleaner. Do no touch.

Car idles fine but will not go over 2000 rpm's when the gas pedal is pressed. Lots of hesitation and some backfiring when gas pedal is pressed.


We need to know more about what car and engine you have, but the primary suspect is that the timing belt has slipped and things are out of time.

Fuel problem


first i would cover the basics. change the fuel filter, next change the spark plugs, careful this car takes special spark plugs. probably have to get from toyota. next clean the throttle body, pull air nozzle off and open the butterfly so you can spray throttle body cleaner in their and clean with toothbrush. also dont be alarmed after cleaning the throttle body and changing the fuel filter it will be hard starting, hold the gas pedal half way.

Hesitation at 40mph and 50 mph.


A pop and hesitation is likely a backfire. The hesitation around 40 and 50 would be in keeping with that theory. There are several reasons you might be getting backfires and hesitation. If your ECM is adjusting the engine to run too rich this could happen. Misfiring might be occuring. Timing could be out. But one of the most likely is a restricted exhaust, likely due to a plugged, damaged or worn out catalytic converter. In some cases the converter may be bad enough to be giving you some performance problems, but not yet quite bad enough to signal an error. A vacuum test can help confirm whether this is exhaust related.

Hesitation


Check your ignition leads for spark or shorts. In dim light you will see the spark jumping where there is a short. Don't put your fingers near the leads when running. Bit of a nasty. If you have a timing light just hook up each lead one ata time to check for flash from the strobe. 

Hope this helps
