Incorrect installation of the chain. It is backfiring because the timing is off. Remove the chain and do it again correctly.

If it backfires while you are driving, the intake manifold bolts may be loose or the gasket may need to be replaced. If it backfires when you turn off the ignition, the fuel mixture is a little on the rich side.

if it backfires when driving most crank sensors cause this

It maybe a leak in the intake manifold gasket.

while driving yur car reduces speed then pulls off with speed and backfires what can cause that

Could be a bad rebuild unit or a bad battery. It could also be the type of driving and accessories that the unit supports.

If a Kawasaki 650 Prairie backfires and bogs down while driving, this may be due to old battery. It is best to change the battery and clean the filters, too.

You don't necessarily need to replace it unless it's either making noise while driving, or if there's a lot of play when you try to wiggle it. but since you're replacing the drums and the year of the car, might as well replace them.

Had this same issue in a '93 Probe. Replaced the CV axle and stabilizer links to no avail. While replacing the steering bushings I noticed my rim was somewhat warped, so I had replaced with a spare. Not sure if it was the wheel or the bushings but the sound disappeared! And man was it ever a frustrating noise!

You replaced the cap and it will take quite a few driving cycles for the light to go off if that was the culprit. Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and that might reset the light.

Normally it should be replaced when it shows signs of cracking around the rib areas. Rubber gets brittle with age, so that is more important than mileage. If it has never been replaced, replacing it would be a good idea and good insurance. If it ever breaks while driving you will have very limited driving time as it will over heat without the water pump operating..

This buzzing indicates that the wheel bearings need to be replaced on your front left wheel. This can be fixed by changing the bearings themselves or replacing the entire wheel hub.

We had a weak fuel pump on our van. Had it replaced and it worked great after that. You should also consider replacing the fuel filter. I had the same problem with my van and after replacing the fuel filter, the check engine light went off and it's driving like a champ now!

If it is a V6 at 110,000 miles the cam belt and water pump should have been changed. This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. If you have not had the belt replaced STOP driving the car until you can get this done. The belt can break at any moment. On a V6 & 4 cylinder, you also need to have the transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid changed. The coolant needs replacing and thermostat needs replacing. Spark plugs and plug wires need replacing. Air & cabin filter need replacing every 30,000 miles. All suspension and steering parts need inspected and replaced as necessary. More than likely the struts need replacing. The exhaust system should be inspected. Of course the brake system should be inspected and repaired if necessary.

A rubber timing belt may be replaced due to age or due to condition. If a belt breaks while driving, it will result in instant stopping of the motor, frequently with damage to the valves/pistons. Replacing an old or worn belt in a timely manner is MUCH cheaper than the results of NOT replacing one. Check the price of a belt, and the price of a wrecker and engine rebuild.

Does the (check engine )stay lit when you start from cold if not then check the engine oxygen sensor may need replacing or the turbo has been replaced and could be blowing out the spark

Daytime Running lamps are replaced following the same directions as replacing regular headlamps. First lift the prop the hood open on a 2007 VW Beetle and locate the headlights. Find the light bulbs and remove them from the housing. Replace the lamps.

Check the oxygen sensor. My 1995 Grand Cherokee stopped stalling while driving after it was replaced.

one reason could be a bad ECM (Engine Control module). Replacing it is easy. You can do it yourself.
