popping sound while starting

Anyone ever experience a popping sound, from under the hood while starting.

Occasionally mine will POP and not want to start. Damn thing sounds like the intake manifold or something is going to blow apart.

Backfiring when you are starting? You need to get under the hood and see if you are backfiring.

well I can only be once place at a time, and it happens when cranking.

The Jeep idles ok I guess even though it's high (about 1500rpm) no backfiring during idle, though it will when you turn it off ONLY after driving.

Makes me wonder if the timing chain is loose, or the timing is off somehow.

Turn the key to on. Make sure its in neutral and the brake is set. Use a wire to jump the pins 30 and 86 on the starter relay. Then you can start it from under the hood. I owe Que another thanks for teaching me that trick.

So you do have backfiring then. How many miles on it? For backfiring it is usuall your timing is off or you have carbon build up in the cylinders.

Timing can be off because the chain is streched. That is why I asked the mileage.

You need to listen to it when it is running and see if you can hear the chain slapping against the cover.

Looking at a new timing chain set, with gears and tensioner. Last I checked it was about $70 at Autozone. Probably a couple hours wrenching with a few standard end wrenches and a puller for the balancer. One trick I always do is to make paint marks on everything so I know its all pointing the same way instead of being disturbed.
