If it started recently you could have developed a vacuum leak on the intake causing a lean condition....happened to my bike

SOURCE: backfires during deceleration

Check a spark plug for color. A white plug means that it's too lean (Not enough fuel) They will pop when lean on decel!

SOURCE: fuel injection problem, bike starts anad idles,

sounds like a couple of things. first because this is a free check. remove the plugs and do a pressure check on the pistons. you may have a valve problem. you will need to rebuild your carb and clean your jets as well.

backfire is a sign of unburnt fuel. assuming your ignition and valve timing is correct the problem is either a poor spark/plug or rich mixture ie to much fuel (carburetor, not injection) or an air leak in the manifold system (exhaust) check these in this order.

It may be a vacuum leak. Some vehicles use engine vacuum to operate heater controls. A leak would cause the controls to malfunction and also increase engine idle. Check all the vacuum hoses for damagedvor unplugged ends. Hope this helps.

2000 Grand Vitara breaksdown, backfires and dies while driving after about 30 minutes. Starts again in about an hour. Changed fuel pressure regulator. Made no difference.


The check engine will be on if the key is on but engine not running . This is normal. If the check engine goes out when the engine starts there are no codes present . Did you check the fuel filter . Sometimes when a filter is dirty there is sedement laying in the filter canister . When the pump starts working the flow picks up the sedement and plugs any remaining open screen and stops the fuel completely . The engine stops . When the flow stops the sedement falls back allowing flow again. and the engine will run for another while . If the filter is old it should be changed anyway . Also when the engine stops check to see if there is spark at the spark plugs while cranking the engine .

That's normal; this protects your engine from over-rev damage.

It sounds to me like there is a problem with your Idle Speed Control solenoid/motor. (ISC) These can sometimes fail without turning on the Check Engine light. If the Check Engine light is coming on while you are driving, you should have the computer system checked out first. This will lead you to the proper fix.

I have had the same problem, replaced everything. Have not solved it. Sometimes car stops completely whilst driving. Your problrm will only happen when air con is on. There is a small electronic box under glove box. Turn small dial to the low postition or high, whichever fixes it and also bring your revs up with the idle screw on throttle body. I still have not solved my engine cut out problem, must be a faulty relay. I have replaced the computer and distributor but still have the problem
