Re: help needed,88 lebaron turbo skipping

Did you set the ignition timing to 12 degree with coolant temperature sensor unplugged?

Re: help needed,88 lebaron turbo skipping

Welcome To TD!!!

Backfire in the intake is caused by valve timing being incorrect or ignition taking place at the wrong time.
Verify Cam Timing is correct.
Verify Ignition Timing is correct
Verify the Ignition Firing Order is Correct.

CHECKING CAM TIMING
Cam Timing and Belt Tension 84-95 2.2/2.5L

IGNITION TIMING PROCEDURE
