Did it do this BEFORE you put the spark plug wires on wrong ?.

Don't drive it !!!

Started to kind of backfire and then I change the wires and distributor cap and it still did it no I have not driven it now I have done all the spark plugs and wires and distributor cap and fuel filter and it still does it

It run good but when you take of it seems like it lose power

I have a 93 Chevy stick shift when i start it. It smells really rich and if your going down the highway if you floor bored it it like its holding back let up off the gas pedal to about half or 3/4 it starts trying to take off like it should then Boggs back down any help would be appreciated

@Tom Shafer no it didn't backfire at all. This happen after I ran out of gas

If it backfires when you let off the gas peddle it has air getting into the exhaust, either an exhaust gasket or cracked manifold before the catalytic converter or the emission control's Air Injection system. The air injection check valves (STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS PT#AV7) are common failure parts. Cost about $18.00 each you should replace both if they are the problem. Be sure to use a wrench on the pipe and a wrench on the valve or the pipe will twist and break and sometimes a torch is required.

If you hear a pop sound under the hood when you accelerate it is most likely running lean (Not enough fuel) from either a vacuum leak or the fuel pump failing (low fuel pressure). The 90 degree elbow in the PCV Valve hose at the base of the throttle body to the PCV valve is common to either fall off or have a hole in it. Most of the time the engine will idle at a higher RPM a suction sound can be heard. The hose is available in the "HELP" section at any Auto Parts store. I think the part is a DORMAN# 46001. If the POP is from the intake you have to check all the vacuum hose connections and the throttle body base gasket because the POP will blow the hoses off and can blow a section out of the base gasket causing an even leaner fuel mixture.

STEP 1: CHECK ENGINE LIGHT

Anytime you have an engine that is backfiring the first thing to look for is a check engine light. If no warning lights are on continue down this guide. If the check engine or service engine soon light in on scan the computer for trouble codes. This will help locate the system that is having a problem and needs repair.

STEP 2: CHECKING FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE

An intake back-fire explosion can be caused by the fuel air mixture being to lean when the engine is demanding power. Every internal combustion engine runs on a mixture of 14 to 1 which is fourteen parts air to one part fuel. Proper fuel pressure is needed to atomize the fuel correctly when it leaves the fuel injector to complete the burn process.

The most common cause for this problem is a weak fuel pump which cannot supply the volume of fuel needed for the injectors to produce a proper spray pattern or deliver the amount of fuel needed for engine acceleration. The fuel system pressure must be tested to see if the fuel delivery system is the problem.

Some cars have a fuel filter which can also cause a fuel pressure and volume restriction. When they plug due to particles in the gasoline they can case a lean condition. If you have not changed the fuel filter lately locate and replace it

STEP 3: SERVICE OR REPLACE THE MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR

Your vehicle's computer system monitors the air that enters the engine via the mass air flow sensor. When this sensor malfunctions due to a condition called coking the hot wire inside the sensor becomes contaminated and will alter the reading to the computer which will create a lean mixture condition that may or may not trigger a check engine light. The lean condition is because the computer thinks there is less air entering the engine than there actually is, less air means less fuel. The first step is to remove the MAF sensor and clean it using carburetor cleaner.

We have had better luck by replacing the sensor because once this condition happens the hot wire can become unresponsive in which case the sensor needs to be replaced.

STEP 4: CHECK THE AIR INTAKE BOOT OR TUBE

The air intake boot or tube transfers air from the mass air flow sensor into the throttle actuator and then into the engine. If there is a problem with these parts such as a tear or rip it will allow un-metered air into the engine which the computer will see via the oxygen sensor which in turn will deliver less fuel creating a lean condition. Check this part for damage by removing it for inspection and replace it if needed.

STEP 5: CHECK FOR VACUUM LEAKS

The engine's intake system depends on being completely sealed and free from leaks. If a main vacuum hose such as the power brake booster feed line has broken or failing off it will cause a lean backfire due to the additional air allowed into the engine intake manifold. This problem will be accompanied by high or low engine idle and a harder to push brake pedal than normal. Using a smoke machine or carburetor cleaner you can check for a vacuum leak and repair it to fix the problem.

REPETITIVE BACK FIRE

A repetitive backfires are generated when the engine is simply running at idle or at cruising speed and can be inline with the engine RPM. A rhythmic popping sound which is not as prominent as lean under power backfires. The problem list below will give you an idea of what causes could be generating this condition.

STEP 6: WORN OR SHORTED SPARK PLUGS

The engine's ignition system is triggered by an electronic driver which signals the ignition coil when to fire. By design the resistance it takes to fire the coil via the spark plug is figured into the system. When this resistance becomes excessive due to severely worn spark plugs or a bad ignition coil it can cause these drivers to malfunction at which point they can crossfire into an opposing cylinder either under power or at idle.

This condition may or may not be detected by the computer so the check engine warning light may not come on. Spark plugs should be changed at regular intervals, platinum plugs at about 60,000 miles which will correct this problem.

STEP 7: CHECK THE CAMSHAFT

A camshaft is used to open the intake and exhaust valves of the combustion chamber to allow intake air in and the spent exhaust gases out. If the exhaust valve lobe becomes worn and loses its lift the fire from the exhaust gases are still left in the cylinder which is then released into the intake manifold once the intake valve opens. To check for this condition you must first remove the valve cover(s).

After the valve covers have been removed and with the ignition disabled (coils off) crank the engine over and observe the intake and exhaust valve operation, opening and closing. Also, if the intake or exhaust valves are not closing completely due to a broken valve spring it will allow the combustion gases to enter the intake manifold much like a flat camshaft lobe. Use a flashlight in carefully check the valve spring windings. These springs can break either at the top middle or bottom of the spring which can be sometimes be difficult to see.

A bent push rod can also cause the valve not to work properly by restricting the movement of the valve. While the valve cover is still removed look at each of the pushrods to see if there is an obvious bend to them. This also can be done by detecting poor rocker arm movement while the engine is being cranked over.

Let us know if you are getting a tailpipe backfire and we'll go over that.

UPDATE Tail Pipe Backfire

An exhaust tail pipe backfire is caused by an excessive amount of un-burnt fuel remaining in the exhaust system or fresh air being allowed to enter the system which ignites a small amount of un-burnt fuel.

STEP 1: UPSTREAM EXHAUST LEAK

If fresh air is allowed to leak into the exhaust system it will ignite the un-burnt fuel inside the system creating a popping noise. It is difficult to think of because most people think of a exhaust system to be under constant pressure but this is not true. The system is fed with a series of pressure and vacuum pulses which are created by the exhaust valve opening while the combustion charge being expelled into the system, and then the valve closing. This is where the vacuum event is created by the pulse velocity and the fresh air let into the system. This is why you can get a lean mixture trouble code when there is an exhaust system leak. Inspect the system and repair any exhaust leaks present. This detection is done by looking for a flat back shoot which is evidence of a leak.

STEP 2: CHECK THE GULP VALVE

On engines made from about 2001 and older are equipped with a air injection system that is fed into the exhaust system when the engine is under load. This is to burn unspent fuel which helps the emission system work better. This systems is fitted with an air gulp valve that acts like a one way check valve to allow air into the system when the engine is under load. This gulp valve is fitted to the exhaust manifold via a large pipe or an individual port tubing configuration with a rubber tube that connects to an air pump.

When the valve goes bad air is released into the system at all times even during de-acceleration which then created a backfire kind of popping due to the fresh air igniting the unspent fuel. Most engines have one or two of these valves one for each exhaust manifold. To check these valves you must remove them and then try to blow through them each way. Only one direction is all that should be allowed. If air is allowed in both directions the valve is bad and should be replaced.

When high performance turbo engines are under load they use an excessive amount of fuel which then is transferred into the exhaust system once the throttle is let up on and the engine is de-accelerating. This is a normal event and there is no problem with this condition.

On older engine's ignition timing is set at a specific degree in relationship to the crankshaft. If this timing is mis-adjusted it can cause low power, poor gas mileage, engine detonation (pinging) and backfiring through the intake or exhaust system.

Thank you so much for your input

@darland I guess my answer was to detailed to accept ;-) If it is a tailpipe backfire I can give you a shorter answer for that.

I can hear the backfire from the tailpipe. ....what dose that mean

When I push the gas it backfires and bogs out

Not every engine runs on the same compression ratio my 2012 Silverados ratio is 9.6:1 stock the newer ones are 11:1 not to mention all of the supercharged and turbocharged engines on the road

You have not answered the most important question in this problem.

Is the spark plug firing order correct ?

Go find Google 'CHEVROLET V8 FIRING ORDER'.

Before reading anything, click the IMAGES tab.

While standing in front of the radiator. Locate spark plug #1.

( #1 better be on your right side... or this is a FORD! )

Follow the #1 wire back to the distributor.

Is it plugged into the #1 distributor hole ? <- the most common misteak !

Flag it #1 with a piece of sticky tape.

Now standing on a stool above the distributor, follow the Google picture of each wire from the distributor to the proper spark plug. Flag each one as you go.

Flags in correct clockwise-order = 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2

Now, it should idle like a Cadillac.

Good chance timing is off &/or a bad valve. I believe that backfiring is from too much fuel at wrong time in combustion chamber. Not a trained mechanic, but, a life long small block Chevy owner. Hope it helps

Now if the spark plugs are say in wrong place could that not only make it back fire but while driving will it or could it, literally die out while driving down the road without warning?

Yes it can the timing being off can do this as well

Timing off or plug wires in wrong order will cause a CONSISTENT condition. (It will run poorly all the time). These problems will not be intermittent or happen suddenly when driving. If it runs fine but at times backfires or loses power, this is not from bad static ignition timing or firing order. This is from something that changes due to temperature, fuel demand, spark gap resistance( rises with engine load), vibration, or something else that changes as you drive. This applies to ANY engine that starts running poorly after you are already going down the road. SOMETHING has been affected by the changing environment under the hood as you drive. Temperature, moisture, fuel level decreasing in tank, elevation, terrain(up or down hill), road surface, and other things all change as you drive and something in or supporting the operation of the engine is not continuing to work at 100% under all conditions.

All it is ….is your coil plug is loose. Trust me man..just take off the breather and push the plug down. Snug…it will fix your problem

Update (01/30/2022)

If you haven't figured it out yet just check your plugin on the coil pack behind the throttle body…all these dudes acting like mechanics need 2 just think for a minute before they start getting all crazy and freaking out..the plug is barely on so everytime you turn or the slightest dip in road it comes loose just enough to stop sending current to your distributor then it backfires because your motor is still turning, therefore creating an explosion in the chamber because it's still getting gas….very simple..I guarantee you that if you go and push down on the plug of your coil then your problem is solved.

Eric;

I'm glad that you got your engine running again after finding your loose coul wire plug. Good for you. That is not, however, the only thing to cause this problem, and, is not likely the cause in this case. All the dudes actin' like mechanics already have stopped and thought about this and looked beyond your scope of solutions as the symptoms indicate that the problem does not happen all the time, as a loose coil wire would cause. And, with any type of backfire/misfire condition, wiggling/tugging the ignition wiring is the first thing a mechanic does after opening the hood, and I assume he did as well. Even people who know nothing about cars will lift the hood and wiggle the wiring(and don't know what else to do) if they break down. The simple fix that you discovered does not mean that it is the magic trick for every engine that backfires- Not even close. Well, at least your "trust me, bro" solution does not take long to try or lead them in the wrong direction. But I would not say it is their answer.

That year a TBI was in use on the 350 engines it's basically 2 fuel injectors moun ted on a venturi they are notorious for oring failure.take off the air cleaner so where you can see that a cone shaped spray is continously spraying.and it's not dripping fuel into the venturi.As a trained and schooled mechanic the tbi needs a 20 dollar rebuild kit and also check the egr valve with the a vaccum hose to the top of the egr apply vaccum or just suck on it it should kill the engine or make it run extremely crappy. Then un bolt it if it operates as it should and clean all the carbon from around it. Clean the pcv valve with break clean so it easily rattles when shaking.call me let me know how it goes there's other less likely culprits that. Old be causing the problem.unless you have replaced the timing chain or had the distributer all the way off I wouldn't bother to check timing as I doubt it's off

If you have a multimeter you can check the .anifold absolute pressure sensor or (Map) as it's called your truck doesn't have a mass airflow sensor or (maf) and don't use carburetor cleaner on any &&^&^$ sensor I can't believe how many backyard chimps answered your post.first things first check the spray pattern of your injectors you have to see the cone shaped spray coming out of them when it's idling.i guarantee the orings housing the injectors are bad causing fuel to visibly drip into the venturi.take off the air filter or whatever is bolted hiding the injectors from view and don't forget to plug up any disconnected vacuum lines when you remove the air intake .start the engine and observe the cone shaped spray pattern coming out of both injectors!

One other thing with a multimeter set on the highest ohms readings test a spark plug lead I've actually seen some brand new blue ones that were causing a week spark because of too much built in resistance .they should never be more than 8,000 ohms per foot .more like they should be about 2000 ohms if they are good ones.

Try rebuilding the fuel pressure regulator if its tbi
