2002. Why does it emit black smoke and has a gas smell?

black smoke on acceleration is from a rich running engine. the fuel smell can also be from the same but please make sure u dont have an extermal fuel leak. that could be dangerous and a strong smell would occur. have ur engine computer system scanned for possible codes or if its a carbeuretor sounds like the float may be sticking or a msadjusted choke or carb assembly. hope this helps

Rough start, smell gas

For the RPM's jumping up and down i would replace the throttle position sensor. If it smells like bad gas or rotten eggs these are signs that the cat. converter is going bad. For the poor gas mileage replace the fuel filter.

Gearbox makes a noise when cornering and kick very hard into first gear and I don't know were the dipstick or filler cap is on my renault scienic gearbox?
