Hello, Unfortunately, due to the age of this car, the backfiring can be caused by a number of different loose wires or bad connections. I did manage to find an article by somebody who had a similar problem to your own. Hopefully this will help: http://experts.about.com/q/Truck-Repair-2233/89-S-10-Backfires.htm Best of luck! CarGrrl
