Backfire/ popping back thru intake

Post by rksmith88 » Sun Dec 30, 2012 3:31 pm

Our car started backfiring/popping back thru the intake and a complete loss of power. Intake valve? Any ideas? 163,000 on the car. :?:

So, if anyone has this problem, it is probably a spark plug that has come out and blown the coil into pieces. Another way to tell if something is wrong is if you smell a gasoline smell in the cabin and you have the heat or a/c on and the car is at an idle. So much gas builds up and all of a sudden a spark occurs and blows the plug and coil completely out of the head. Case closed, the machine shop is putting an insert, not a helicoil, in to repair the threads and no head replacement necessary.

If it did'nt blow a plug and coil check your fuel filter i've seen them stop
up and do that and a weak fuel pump would be like a stoped up filter.
