backfiring typically means that the fuel system is dumping way too much fuel into the engine. The fuel injection system is computer controlled, and shutting it off reboots the computer. It also may give the faulty component a chance to cool off. Diagnostics of the computer using a scan tool will likely find the fault (some auto parts stores will do a scan for free) it could be a faulty fuel injector, or any of the components that control the injection system, which can include many different engine sensors (throttle position sensor, oxygen sensor, coolant temp sensor, etc.), or the main engine control unit (computer). It is critical that the diagnostics are done first...don't just start swapping parts.
Time for a tune up.
my car starts every now and again, but when it does start it turns off and then it backfires. i dont know if it is the fuel pump or the sparkplugs or both, please help me find the problem.
yes, study witchcraft, but i warn you, it backfires a lot.
timing problem or crossed plug wire or even possibly a burnt valve.
If any car backfires it is usually due to retarded timing, running lean or a problem in the valve train.
More than likely a timing belt Problem
your neon sputters from old spark plugs and plug wires. i changed both and problem went away.
Hells bells is the opening track on Back in Black. Highway to hell is off Highway to Hell. Problem child is off Let there be rock.
Because somehow fuel gets in the exhaust and backfires, the best way to fix this problem is to clean out your carb, clean the pilot and jets inside of it, most people that done this said that it was the problem.
Look for a clogged air filter or a loose intake manifold bolt. If the problem is not there, the fuel mixture may be on the rich side and the carburetor needs adjusting.
the spark plug wires
Could be a burned valve (do a compression test of all cylinders) Could be a timing problem (check the timing)
The starter will not stop the engine from running once it is started. You have another problem.
i tried it all it did was backfire still wouldnt start Spray the starter fluid into the air filter intake. If it backfires and will not start you have a problem that needs to be fixed.
When you are a hazard to other drivers: Drive too slow on highway Problem with vehicle
It is a division problem. There are 60 minutes in an hour. 900/60 = 15. There are 15 hours in 900 minutes.
check your air filter and fuel injection pumps, if you dont see a problem then inspect your emissions system. your welcome for the help
The Sputtering tends to be a old or clogged fuel filter the engine is getting starved of fuel replace that and it should fix the problem
predictament, issue, and challenge
Fuel pump is my guess.
If a car backfires, the fuel mixture is incorrect. I believe it's too lean. Also, timing could be off. Try increasing the fuel mixture with the jets on the carburetor. You may want to reference your VW shop manual for which one to use. If that doesn't solve the problem, then have a garage time the vehicle to make sure pre-ignition isn't happening.
One problem every 2.25 minutes
Have vehicle scanned to determine problem and recover codes Could be a bad coolant temperature sensor
