Hi pcjlfc,

I think its a very good idea, to replace the oil filter, fuel filter and air filter when you replace the engine oil.
I will guess that the fuel filter is in need of replacement. It's also an idea for you to check the air filter. To check the air filter, use a very strong light and hold it behind the filter....If you can see the light through the filter material you're safe, if not you need it replaced. The air filter is a very important filter for durable engine life.

If that doesn't work, we'll need to learn more about what happened as a lead up to the problem.

Best regards Johngee10

OK my 95 Chevy 1500 2wd 4.3 manual transmission, the truck runs fine never fails to start but seems to have a little loss of power but I'm also running 33 inch mud tires on it. it smokes a little out the...


the bigger tyres the more power it takes to turn them
You have very big tyres so suffer a loss of power
with extra power and the oil pressure falling, I would suspect worn big ends and main bearings especially with the smoking exhaust as under load of acceleration the extra clearance in the bearings is allowing extra oil onto the cylinders and the oil rings cannot cope.
exhaust system has no effect

Tip

Loss in engine power, sluggish responses, low top speed, etc.


If your car has
  1. Poor fuel responses
  2. Lost its "power"
  3. Low RPM
  4. Lower top speed
  5. Burns a lot of fuel
Then it could be because of carbon build-ups in your engine's combustion chamber. This is left behind with unburned fuel. It causes poor acceleration, a loss in power, lower top speed, and burns more fuel than it really has too. Not to mention causes smoke belching.

The best way to get rid of that would be to have a carbon ridding solution injected into the combustion chamber. The solution will liquify the carbon and other build-ups, which would then restore the "power" of your car. You'll get better acceleration, higher rpm and top speed, save fuel, etc. have a mechanic do it for you. It's alot cheaper and faster than having the engine overhauled (overhaul could trigger "loose compression").

Speed is lesser and smoke releases through salencer


Smoke on the exhaust shows an indication of the fault on the car engine. A blue smoke is an indication of fuel loss, a blue smoke also indicates that oil is burning due to cylinder lining or rings failure. Also blck smoke indicates high acceleration specially in diesel engines and also can be an indicator of a poor engine state.
Also if the silencer is clogged it can show up black smoke on acceleration. It will be best to check for oil use, cylinder compression and fuel use so that you can get an inference on the fault.

2005 transit loud turbo,no power especially on inclines,puffing black smoke from exhaust


The black smoke is blow-by you need a ring job. Oil is getting by the top ring of your pistons in one or more cylinders. Loss of power under a load is also indicative of this.

2001 E220 CDI exhaust tail pipe black smoke on acceleration


Black smoke is almost always an indication that the air/ fuel mix (ratio), is too rich. I would try to find out if the just cleaned the injectors or were they replaced. Cleaning injectors and sometimes leave irregularly shaped orifices. Besure the air filter is clean. This can effect mix also.
Good Luck and hope this helps.
