1998 Chrysler Cirrus from North America
I have this problem now where the engine will spit when I accelerate slowly once I hit above 50 mph. It will also backfire occasionally too. If anybody knows what this is, please tell me.
Thank you very much.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Cannot say for sure, but I would check the timing belt. It sounds like your valve timing could be out of whack (from a loose belt), which could be causing your backfiring. If it is backfiring through the throttle body, it could also be a fire hazard. I do not wish to make you nervous, but am giving you my honest opinion. As you may know too, if the timing belt goes, it could destroy the engine. Again, I cannot say for sure without looking at the car, but the timing belt would be where I would at least start looking if it were my car. At the very least, if the timing belt has not been changed yet, it is definitely due, if not overdue. Good luck.
