CHECK your tioming - might have jumped a tooth - check control module or coil might be the problem

A rototiller may backfire when it is starting because the valves need to be adjusted. Another reason that it might backfire is because you have to replace the spark plug.

A motorcycle jerk or backfire can come from the choke not shutting off completely, the fuel jets might be clogged, a gasket or seal may be broken. Valves that are out of adjustment could also be the problem.

It might be overfueled but it also might be just that when you turn the key off the motor runs on a bit and puts fuel into the hot exhaust and it ignites it and makes it backfire.

might be the thermostat stuck shut The radiator and cooling system could be low on coolant

If the vehicle will stall and will not restart or appears to be out of fuel but the fuel gauge reads above empty, replace the fuel sensor assembly and auxiliary tank fuel level sensor if equipped. if not, replace the instrument cluster.

It might be that you did not tighten the gas cap enough.

I don't know excatly, But Iam pretty sure that Chevy put's the "Icm" in the distributor or on the coil pack. Your vehical however might not have a ignition module the "Power train control module"(pcm) in some vehical's control's spark timing.

Hesitation can be caused by several things: 1. A faulty throttle position sensor might cause hesitation. 2. A faulty MAP or MAF sensor might also cause hesitation. 3. A problem with the engine control module might cause hesitation.

A bad TPS might cause the engine to not fire up during cranking. But not crank? Nope.

A bad idle air control sensor or a bad throttle position sensor.

It could be a number of things, you need to have the computer scanned to find out what is wrong.
