Well I just got this car. I have not really ever messed around with the car model listed above ( LT). The car seamed like it was starving for gas. I could hold the gas down to the floor and it’ll just stay alive and it’s backfiring.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes

Welcome to 2CarPros.

A backfire is usually the result of either a fuel delivery problem, ignition timing, engine vacuum leaks, or an internal engine problem.

Here is a link that explains how to check for and repair a backfire issue. See if it helps. If it doesn't, please feel free to let me know.

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe
