Fuel Filters

Why would a 1986 Ram Charger 318 backfire after a few minutes and bog down and lack power if the timing is right and plugs and wires and the fuel filter are new and the choke is not sticking?

you can also check your could be giving and taking power causing the backfire.then check your CARB!.I ran all new rubber lines($40 @auto parts) to the tank ,took me an hour !never had a fuel problem again.. If your exhaust is the O.E. exhaust it will have catalytic converters. Check to ensure that the "honeycomb" inside is not melted, or broken. This can cause lack of power and backfires through the exhaust. It is your smog pump or something in that ballpark.

No, backfire is usually caused by park plug wires that are installed incorrectly or an engine that is out of time. Fuel filter and pump will not cause backfire.

Could be anything from dirty fuel filter, bad fuel pump, fouled spark plugs, worn out plug wires, dirty intake, etc...

The fuel filter is part of the pump module in the fuel tank on a 2006 Dodge Charger.
