The car does run, although sometimes I can't get it started, I have taken it to the shop and they are not for sure, they wanted to hook it up to a computer but the car would not read. So he is thinking the computer is out or there is a loose wire. He said the car was running fine so I went and got it and when I tried to start it, it took me 3 times. I called him and told him it was still backfiring and he said to put some gas in it and see what happens. Well, it still back fired and my husband drove it for 2 days and it ran fine. So I go to drive it and it would not start after maybe 3 or 4 times it finally back fires so loud I figured I had better stop before I put another hole in the muffler and low and be hold it was to late. My husband came home and it started right up and yes the hole was in the muffler. Although he says he would go out and turn the ignition over but not start it and turn it back and then start it. I have drove this car for 7 months and all of a sudden this happens. I am puzzled. I think the engine light is on but it has always been on. Let me know if you can help. My dad feels that if it was the timing it would do it all the time. I don't know but I am willing to try anything. Thanks in advance for anyones advice.
