How do I determine where the backfire is coming from?
I don't get any codes, I wish I had one.

a backfire out the exhaust will be a loud bang like a shotgun.
a backfire in the intake will be a muffled pop from the front of the vehicle.

I'm going to bump this thread with a new question.
I've been kind of dealing with this problem, but today I was up wheeling and got stuck, shut off the jeep, hooked up the winch, and the thing wouldn't start back up, a couple of guys got me unstuck and level, then she fired right back up.

I'm thinking that it could be the CPS, that's about the only sensor I haven't had to replace in the last year

Ok I got a new cps and it didn't chang anything, now my gas gauge is jumping everywhere, and I have a very rough idle, is it possible I have another bad pump?

Today I tested my coil it was fine.

I'm still stumped on what it could be, maybe the cam shaft position sensor?

If you have an ohm meter, you will unplug the coil at both ends, set the ohm meter on k or 20k, put a lead where the plug wire connects and the other lead on one of the prongs on the other side (it doesn't matter which one, do both) The ohm meter should read between 10.5 and 15, I believe it was. Mine was 13. I got the specs from autozone, you should just be able to take it in there and they can do this for you.
