May be valve adjustment? lean? Is it rhythmic or random? If its rhythmic find out which cylinder has the problem disconnect each spark plug until the back firing stops.

SOURCE: 2001 eclipse started bogging had plugs wires cap

Hello! The Top Dead Center Sensor is the most likely culprit...However, it is not sold as a separate item and is part of the distributor...The cost of which is $350...I would suggest having the vehicle hooked up to a diagnostic machine to be certain...A diagnostic check should be under a $100...See distributor picture below...

2000 ford escort 2.0L. plugs, wires, coil pack, alternator, MAF sensor. hard to start and RPM around 1k wants to die (any stops) always runs rough. Says air intake sensor. catalytic converter or CCRM?

Have you cleaned the throttle body and throttle body valve? have you cleaned the idle speed control air bypass valve? are the injectors clean? Are there any fault codes in memory, do the things I mentioned if you haven't already. Also hard engine mounts can cause roughness at idle. Another thing is the timing belt tight?

My friend has a 4runner and all of a sudden the engine started idling real bad. i checked it and scanner shows that cylinders 2,4,6 are misfiring. any suggestions. thanks in advance.

Since all of the EVEN Cylinders are misfiring I suggest checking the timing belt as it has likely slipped on that bank of the engine.

91 mercury capri will not idle

Clean the idle speed control valve and the throttle body of the engine and that should correct this.

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.

The reason I'm checking the timing belt is that there is mis-fire in 1 & 2 cylinder. If the firing order is 1,2,3,4. I have continues fire out of 1 & 2, when plug wires are pulled out of head. 3...

unplug the fuel injectors, check the olhms on all. the readings should all be the same, around 11-11.5 olhms. Any readings that are higher is a sign of a bad injector which is what your problems sounds like., putting to much fuel to a cylinder causing different fuel amounts to each cylinder and causing it to backfire out of the throttle body , excess fuel . Also remove the throttle body and clean with cleaner and a toothbrush after replacing any injectors. Or there's a simpler answer and that the cambshaft is worn-out/round causing the lifters not to open enough to let in all the fuel. A worn belt would not cause misfires only on select cylinders but rather jump timing, slipping a notch on a gear and possibly bending a valve or valves and this cause a loud clacking or a really a sign to quit running the motor because it's broke! Good luck.

89 suburban back fires through the throttle body mainly when it's cold. Also hear a little knocking noise through trottle boby. Seems to lack power. I've changed several parts: fuel pump, oil sensor...

Check the timing chain..Take the belt of and turn the crank by hand and see how much slop there is when you turn it back and forth..If theres not much then there could be a cam problem.But most of the time its the timing chain..Hope this helps you and have a great night....

Changing Idle Control Valve on 1997 Honda Civic 1.4i auto 3 door hatch

I have a 1997 Civic DX. It looks to me that the IACV is located between the engine valve cover and throat of the air intake or throttle body. Not near the fire wall. This model has 4 screws connecting it to the throttle body.
