There was at least one other member here who mentioned a backfire on his 2.0 5 spd manual. I think it was Bradley. Might want to talk to him.

This shouldn't be happening. I thought backfres went out with carburetors.

take a look at the post regarding the engine POP TSB. That's the fix to your issue. It really isn't a back fire even though it sounds like one.

i believe what you think is a back fire is just built up pressure in your exhaust and it makes a pop nose when exciting... but i could be wrong

It's not a backfire. It's a strut issue. There's a service action for it in Canada. My dealership fixed it and the noise hasn't come back.

There's been backfire issues on the 5spd manual fortes for a while now. The new TSB should fix it. (USA TSB)
