My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If the bang was heard from the engine and now it starts and runs rough for about 5 seconds this may be due to a low fuel pressure issue.If you have not checked the fuel pressure with a fuel pressure test gauge this should be done to see if this is due to a lack of fuel pressure causing this fault due to a weak fuel pump.The bang could have been to lean engine running.

If this is or was already checked and found o.k. let me know here so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
