Could be as simple as a bad battery. I have had this problem and also a dead battery at the same time. Replaced battery and the backfires stopped....

Is this Backfireing a Spiting? this is usually caused by a slope setting in the machine if the current to voltage ratio is off it will overload the welding wire with current causing tiny explosions at the point where the wire meets the plate. these explosions are sometimes called backfireing or spitting.

It was running great and started backfiring through the intake. Just had a valve job with new valves, valve guides, springs and a new rocker arm assembly. New point, rotor, distributor cap, and wires.

recheck the valve clearance when the engine is hot if it is hydraulic operated then thee will be an auto adjustment but it should be around .010 " when stationary and hot

1988 oldsmobile ninety eight only runs rough @backfires

Worn Timing Gear & jumped a tooth or two
Check that out
If you rock the crank back & forth with a long
ratchet,with the distributor cap off & the rotor
doesn't move right away then you maybe on to that issue
The fix is to remove the side subframe bolts & lower it
enough to get your puller on & the damper off
You could try using a timing light on # 1 wire &
then on the one half way thru the firing order
The timing should be close with either
Crack the throttle & watch the reaction of timing
Point here is backfire is most likely some type of
timing issue,could be combined with other issues
that contribute
I assume the spark plugs are not more than 3 years old
& you have cleaned up the rotor & cap
The plugs wires last some times 15 years,but not forever

When i give it full throttle it backfires through the throttlebody? already replaced plugs, wires, cap and rotor, idle air valve. cant find crank positioning sensor to set timing.

When you state you have a "Cap & Rotor", indicating an engine, which may possibly be OLDER than the 1994 S-10 it is in. A Crank positioning sensor, on a full throttle body, (or do you mean carburetor/combo/injector system) Not the true name, but, in appearance, looks like a carb. It has a "pulsating" injector within the opening of the butterfly/mouth of the throttling body. When you have an ECM, or Computer Command timing, with a crank sensor, you will have 2 coil packs for 4 cylinder, a 3 coil pack for a V-6. They will be just under the electric cooling fan for the radiator. If you are driving a "bought used" vehicle, and the Cap, Rotor, & wires are only accessed thru the RH wheel well, it is a "Distributor System" & an OLDER engine. The Back fire is being caused by a "jumped" timing belt, or HOPEFULLY, a crossed spark plug wire.

My car is 2004 Chevy Blazer, 4WD 4Dr, 4.3L. I changed intake manifold gasket today. When I pulled off the distributor, I didn't mark the position of the rotor, distributor and lower manifold. I thought...

Turn the engine over and bring #1 piston to the top of the cylinder then remove the dist. cap and be sure the rotor is pointing to #1 plug wire in the firing order. Turn the oil pump shaft with a screwdriver so you can keep the rotor pointing to #1 in the firing order set the dist. You have to pay close attention when you set the dist to the oil pump shaft or you can get it a half tooth off and car will backfire when you start it. Good luck

I have a 1997 Yukon that keeps back firing and cutting off

backfires are cause by unburned fuel in the cylinders, you have a spark problem,, make sure the timing is correct , and check the Plugs, wires, rotor and cap

Isuzu 4ze1 rebuilt kicks over fails to keep running

I don't know if you've figured it out yet, but it's timing or a firing order related issue.
