I STAND CORRECTED, TO RICH AND TO ANSWER YOU YES IT ACTS LIKE IT WANTS TO STALL. ALSO ERROR LITE COMES ON


the temperature sensor often causes symptoms such as this. it incorrectly tells the computer that the engine is cold and needs a rich mixture which results in black smoke and hard starts. another cause for such a condition is fuel injectors that are dribbling rather than atomizing fuel spray.

Rough low idle and black smoke


Bad carb or fuel injection issues- the system is fuel rich (black smoke) and also fuel rich system can make the idle low. Many things can cause this but thses are just a few.

Acts like its flooded an dies,than black smoke out of the tailpipe


Black smoke somes from too much gas so that would be right. It isn't acting. It's flooding. Might check your O2 sensor.

I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country that started acting as if it were going to stall (almost like it was running out of gas) about a week ago. I changed the fuel filter and added a bottle of gumout fuel...


It appears that the fuel pump might be going bad. To eliminate this possible cause, have the pump output pressure tested by a mechanic. It is located in the tank. The pressure test can be done in about 1/2 hour at a good garage.The fuel pump replacement, a four hour job, costs ~$500.00.

Car ships replaced wires plugs o2 sencer sometimes acts like it is flooding run fine on open road.


If it acts like it is flooding while idling, but it runs fine on the road, it could be running too rich and flooding it out due to leaking injectors, bad fuel pressure regulator, or excessive fuel pressure.

I would start by replacing the Fuel Pressure Regulator since it doesn't cost as much as the injectors.
Check your fuel pressure using a Fuel Pressure Check Gauge to see if the fuel pressure regulator is maintaining the proper pressure.

Vacuum is attached to the Fuel Pressure Regulator to control system pressure. When the fuel pressure regulator is not functioning properly it causes the fuel pressure to be above normal operating pressure. This condition causes excess fuel to be injected causing a rich mixture that produces black smoke.
