1999 Cirrus 2.5. This car spits and backfires, idles just a few seconds. It has a new distributor, timing belt checked, compression 150 on all 6, and checked for compressed valve springs. Double checked timing marks and dowel pins on all drive sprockets, checked back-pressure and checked wiring to PCM. Checked fuel pressure and new crank sensor.
