Acts like timing is off when starting, backfires and damaged starter. ok when running!
Started to act like timing was out of adjustment when starting. once started, it runs and drives perfect. checked timing chain and gears and no problems. replaced old and greasy plug wires with no change. could this be the computer or coil packs?
no computer more like coil pak leaking.or ing. moduel ,ck. coil for burn tracks, under side,then moduel
Double check to make sure the spark plug wires are hooked up to the correct cylinders. Misrouted wires can cause backfiring. I, ahem, know from experience. HTH. - Jim
Checked coil paks and see no tracks or cracks. Ing module is $200. any way to confirm this is the issue before replacement? Will replace Ing coils as preventative.
