What causes Engine backfire through air intake when cranking Chevy 5.7?
Would a loud backfire through the intake manifold while cranking engine on 93 grand am sohc mean that you just ruined a valve cause it started yesterday with no problem and today this happened?
Yes...all valves bent...smacked piston...good old interference engines. Started cranking really fast cause valves stuck open from overheat then...BAM...backfire out intake after only 15seconds of cranking...Head back off again. answering own question. Impossible to say. You need to find out why it backfired. Suggest you do a compression test.
What is involved with a 350 Chevy intake manifold that is leaking coolant and oil?

Where is the stater on a 1994 Mercury Villager?
The starter is located under the hood, near where the steering column comes through the firewall. You have to remove the air intake tubing in order to access it. Two bolts hold the started and two nuts attach the wires to the solenoid. I added a 4 gauge wire from the battery negative terminal to one of the starter bolts as this model has a problem with poor grounding and this helped a lot with faster engine cranking.
