Backfiring:

This is the popping or banging sound sometimes heard in the exhaust when decelerating. It can indicate a problem such as over-rich carburetion, a bad exhaust valve or an ignition problem (retarded timing or a cracked distributor cap). If the backfiring occurs through the carburetor, it may mean over-advanced timing, a bad intake valve or a cracked distributor cap.
