  1. have you changed the rubber hoses in the fuel line system?sometimes they will suck shut and cut back on fuel supply which possibly not cause a backfire.There is hoses at the tank and at the pump.Also if the vent hole in your gas cap is plugged it could cause a situation where the pump can't pull enough fuel out of the tank(loosen cap and try it)If it's a gremlin it's usually a small problem that is not obvious.GOOD LUCK----just guessing as you didn't say what make & model-----another thought maybe plugged exhaust?

  9. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Rusty_OToole</div><div class="ubbcode-body">How many people have ever actually read and understood Unsafe At Any Speed? I have, and it convinced me that Ralph Nader is a phony. I wouldn't trust anything he said, and a little digging reveals that he is motivated a lot more by self interest than he lets on. The Corvair was doomed from birth anyway. Frankly the rear engine economy car was rendered obsolete by front wheel drive the day the Austin Mini debuted in 1959. Ironically this was just about the time the Corvair reached the market. I don't believe there was another new rear engine car after the Corvair, although at one time they were very popular all over Europe. The front wheel drive car became the thing, as soon as they figured out how to make it. Every small car today is front drive. </div></div>---- LET'S NOT FORGET THE "PONTIAC FIERO"
