Car Batteries
Mitsubishi Eclipse

Battery was dead so you began to charge it so I then tried to turn it over and it starts to try to fire and backfires could it be timing?

if it backfires it could be timing or else you have it flooded from trying to start it. You didn't say if the engine is carb or fuel injected. If it is carbed, let it sit for awhile to let the gas drain out of the carb. If it is fuel injected then it is probably timing. year make and model of vehic and millage
