You may need to check cylinder compression. Any applicable trouble codes? I believe you can check codes yourself on this vehicle by cycling the ignition switch, you turn key just till the dash lites come on, no further, no crank. Cycle the key on--off, on--off, on, the the mil on the dash starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes. Your looking for two digit codes.
My bad, the mil method will not work on this vehicle according to my info. What is litre size of engine? Other things that can cause backfiring. Ignition timing--- vacuum leaks--exhaust problems-- other.
At the least, you need an obd2 code reader to check codes, yourself. Some of the national brand autostores used to check codes for free.
