Does it start if you give it gas when turning the key? I had a grand prix that would not want to start unless I gave it gas. It was an easy fix. I changed the air filter, used MAF cleaner to clean the MAF and I also took the throttle body apart and cleaned that. The throttle body had a black build up in it that I cleaned up with throttle body cleaner.

SOURCE: engine bk firering & lose of compression.

Backfiring after warming up can be from many things.

One that comes to mind is carbon deposits on valves, causing them to not close properly. The carbon deposits would also heat up and then ignite air/fuel mixtures before the spark plug can fire.
Or you would have hot exhaust gasses leaking back into the cylinder on intake and that would ignite the fuel.

Tac gauge fluctuating, and engine running rough on acceleration could be a vacuum leak, do you hear a hissing sound when the engine is running? listen closely under the hood. If you have a vacuum leak you would lose power and your RPM would fluctuate oddly. As for the backfire however, there are probably more than just one problem. Its hard to say for sure.

So please, more details, noises you hear, when exactly everything happens etc.
What speed and RPM the engine begins to bog down at, does it stall? What range is ur tac fluctuating at? anything you can think of, throw it on there.

Hope this helps you

I have a 1992 mazda 323 it starts after a while it dies i changed the fuel pump there was some white stuff in gas tank changed the fuel filter changed plugs wires distributer cap rotor checked MAS che


I'm glad you figured it out. However, the "white stuff in the tank" sounds like somebody might have put sugar in your gas tank. You should probably pull the tank down, drain it, and clean it out real good. Otherwise, you are likely to be taking your fuel rails and injectors apart again.

Car will turn over but acts like getting any fuel. Fuel filter just changed about 10 months ago. Has had tune up. Has full tank of gas.


I would have the fuel filter changed again, just in case sediment from the tank is blocking fuel through the filter, and check the fuel pump. They put them in the gas tank now and they do go bad. If you jack up the back end where the gas tank is, pehaps you will have enough gravity feed to present enough fuel to the injectors to start the car. That will tell you if the fuel pump is bad.

Where is the fuel filter on a Mazda 6 2006 ? I have terrible idling and hesitation on the car for 3 weeks no one seems to knwo for sure what it is. No service engine light or reading on the computers....


The fuel filter is part of the fuel sending unit inside the gas tank. There is no other fuel filter on the car or no other way to replace it unless you change out the fuel filter.

No gas going to 2005 mazda 6i


the fuel pump is a complete asm. that you can get from mazda we sell them every day. the way you get to it is to remove the back seat lower seat. you remove it and you will see a panel that once you remove it the top of the gas tank and fuel pump are visible. you will need a special tool to unscrew the hold down but after that it is very easy to change.

Cuts out when excelerating like its not getting fuel? also backfires when excelerating-has newer spark plugs all checked and tune up-still has the same issue


Mine does the same thing(same year) and my best guess is....
It only seems to do it when its really low on gas. On the expedition the pump is located near the back of the gas tank(when backed into a driveway the gas gauge reads significantly less gas than what is really in there) so when accelerating the gas sloshes around and the pump doesnt get enough gas to keep it running. Hope this helps.

1995 Jeep Cherokee chugging - minor backfiring won't excelerate


Sounds like it is running lean because of fuel not getting through or air getting in. Taking foot off pedal means the air fuel ratio changes and the engine can run ok at low revs. Has the hot wire on the fi been checked. The last time this happened to me was in a alfa when the crud in the tank blocked the final fuel filter into the carb. The fuel system has several filters so check them all.
