On an interference engine you can have internal engine damage when you attempt to start it. On a noninterference engine it may not start or it may backfire, or miss, if it does start.
Start and run, no. Cough, backfire, yes.
It's lean. You have to figure out why.
to much fuel is going to the engine for it to burn it all
The timing of the engine is off or the spark plug wires have been hooked up incorrectly.
Normally from an engine backfire. The plug fires when the intake valve is partially open which will explode the fuel in the intake and carb.
AnswerSounds to me that your vehicle is off time. Check the timing on it. If the timing is off it will backfire through the carb and also if it is cross wired (firing order wrong) it will backfire through the carb.
your engine will sound rough while at idle speed and your gas milage will start getting worse. it also might start to backfire and make a little more noise than it normally would.
Try a new battery, or get a jump start. Sometimes there is not enough power in the battery to start the engine.
If your engine backfires when trying to start and the valve timing is correct, then it could be electronic ignition unit or the pick up that causes the spark to occur with wrong timing.
yes if it gets water in the fuel pump it can or its just because you drive a Chevy sorry but dodge is better
you tell me the year ill tell you why
Could be in need of a tune-up.
Check engine light, low power, no start, runs rough, bent valves,Check engine light, low power, no start, runs rough, bent valves,
Does it backfire? Check timing. as well as Check that which controls the idle. Does it backfire when you try to start it after it dies? check the computer for coades and check all vavume lines and wire conections Control module and coil are the common ones.
Not sure what engine you have but it is highly unlikely the timing would jump being that it is driven by a chain. If it was to jump it probably wouldn't start and possibly backfire in the attempt to start.
As I remember ^^ Because once you start the engine you give it power so it start working, and this power is really so HIGH that your car can start from 0 MPH to 100 MPH or something like this. So for sure it would shake.
The alternator produces power to charge the battery. The battery powers the starter to turn the engine over.
timing is offset
The hydraulic seals in your power steering will be eaten away by engine oil. Your power steering will start to leek and eventually, it will not work at all.
It will buck, choke & backfire but as long as you don't persist (shut it off right away) it should be o/k. Set the timing properly (15BTDC), firing order is 142536, # 1 cylinder is passenger rear. On any engine, the possibilities are, break a timing chain, bent a rod, backfire.
No spark. No fuel. No compression. Not enough battery power.
A generator needs some kind of engine to drive it, it won't start by itself.
