Default timing

Back the train up. It would be good to know the mileage of the car.
A faulty TPS signal could mess up timing and unburnt fuel in a fouling cylinder could also cause a backfire..
Check the total ignition system first. Coils, plugs, wires and sensors. Check for codes.
Then pull the ECU connectors on and off a few times with the battery unhooked. Then try running it.
See what you find.

Oh, that'* too bad!



If only the junkyard were closer!



But really, sorry about the car going out. It probably could have been resurrected, but it seems your sister wanted a newer car. What did she get?

Just a side note on these cars... I have seen a series of these do exactly what was stated due to a Bad ECM...

It was also possible that it could have jumped time..

They may call this a Non Interference motor, but if it jumps time while you are moving 80 Mph, and given the fact that its not a 0 deck motor.... Yeah, you can do damage

The car was bought for $500 dollars almost 2 years ago with damage to the front clip, looked like someone smacked the step of a box van. The only door you could get into from the outside was the pass. side front. U didn't need a key to start it, the wipers only worked on high and only when they wanted to. This car was a P.O.*! It had over 250,000 on it also. So it'* not like we were trying that hard to save it. I gave her my 93 GPSE 3.1. Had that car since 2001 and she still purr'*. Told her I want it back when she gets another car, I don't think she'* lookin for a car tho. She already told me, i'd be lucky if she let it go. Sh'e liked that car since I got it. So ends the tale of another Bonnie.
