Hi, James and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking.
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Intake air leak.
10. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
11. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
12. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
13. Carburetor controls misadjusted.

Backfire at 60 to 70 mph


Check for bad fuel, but it sounds like it might be spark plugs or spark plug wires breaking down and cross firing or missing. If it is electrical you should have a rougher idle also.

Why does my suzuki vl 800 back fire when shifting up and down


It's running too lean. If you have aftermarket exhaust on it the jetting should have been changed when they were installed. If it wasn't it needs to be.

Backfire


one of the cylinders is missing. It doesn't fire sometimes and when it does, you get the backfire. Check the plugs. It should be obvious which cylinder is at fault.

Back fire, now misses


what year ?
backfires from an EFI engine are not good signs (ussually means timming issue).
Carburated engines on the other hand are more likely to backfire when left sitting for long preiods.

2001 Honda runnung ruff, some back firing


Check spark plugs make sure all four are firing, if they are in good order then I would look at airflow issues. Could also be a problem that some after market pipes cause due to not being installed properly so when slowing down excess fuel in pipes comes back towards engine ignites and creates backpressure therefore you get a backfire this also happens if there is a long hesitation between shifting gears because it is just like slowing down

My 99 chevy blazer 4x4 misses and shuts off some times back fires through the exhaust


Usually, an engine that backfires thru the exhaust is a sign of ignition problems.
Assuming you have the standard 4.3 V6, you should have a flat distributor cap and standard rotor.
I would start there.
The cap could be shorting out inside and making the coil fire the wrong plugs at the wrong time.
It could also be other issues with the distributor or the ign module.

Engine miss fire and occasional backfire.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a couple of ideas you may want to consider/explore:
  • if still using carbs, then lean air/fuel mixture or if using aftermarket filters such as K&N, then rejetting required;
  • if using injectors, exhaust issue, aftermarket muffles/pipes are installed with no re-mapping done.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
