Answers :

This is caused by the ignition timing being disrupted. There's possibly something going wrong with the distributor, maybe the coil, ignition module, bad spark plug wires, there's a sequence of parts in the system that would cause misfiring if one of them has failed.
\015\012My brothers old Chevy 6 cylinder started doing that and it turned out to be that the timing chain tensioner had failed. That made the timing chain sloppy so when he let off the gas, it caused the whole thing to skip a beat, sputter, backfire and then catch back up with itself when he put his foot back on the pedal.
You may have a bad egr valve.thats usually causes this. you can spend a fortune replacing sensors,i can offer an alternative if you're near an autozone or advance auto. they can code read it and the codereader will spit out the code thats the issue. free! they can code read anything up to 1999 but i'm saying most very likely a bad egr valve hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com
