Hi Guitarfield, and the usual suspects are:
1. Loose, corroded, or broken battery cable ends inside the cable harness especially the "NEGATIVE" cable at both ends.
2. A severely drained battery.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.
Good luck and have a nice day.

My Polo Playa 1.6 2002 was driving fine, just heard a loud bang (backfire) and car stalled . Will not start sounds like engine is not turning. What could be the issue?


check the timing belt has'nt snapped , do not try starting engine until you are sure the belt is in tact, if ok get the OBD codes read as will narrow down if a switch/sensor is at fault , if nothing shows check the cylinder compressions

Backfiring won't start bought new coils still won't start and pops backfires


Do you have a carburetor? If you do, it is set too rich. Also, your timing appears off. If you do have a carburetor, adjust the setting to the left a couple of turns. This will lean out the gas mixture. If you have a fuel injector, have the system checked. The air filter could be clogged and the fuel injector could be misaligned.

A backfire is often created because the timing is off, forcing the spark plugs to fire before the pistons get to the top of its power stroke, causing the mixture to burn prematurely.

Chances are you need to do a valve job. Do a compression check on each cylinder to be certain. The compression should be around 130 to 150psi. Please rate my solution.

Crank Sensor is the likely issue. It does not throw a code. Key indicator is the call stalls all the time. R&R sensor.
