The car was driving then it started to run rough and back fire

Customer Question

The car was driving then it started to run rough and back fire now it will turn over but won't start
JA: Figuring out why a car won't start can be a challenge - it could be a simple repair, or something a bit more complicated. Fortunately, the mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: It has power but won't start it seems to back fire when we try to start it
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: We hope to just need the car for work on Monday as my husband needs it for work
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Mechanic should know about your car?
Customer: It's a 1996 xh ford ute xr6
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
