Question about Cars & Trucks
Bad miss & erratic idle can be the T.P.S. had the same problem on an 89 S10 & 91 Sonoma. As for black smoke sounds like oil in cylinders. If the truck has REALLY bad blow by & REALLY worn P.C.V. Valve that can make it smoke too. If not then probably the piston rings with that many miles.

You are burning oil, causing the blue smoke. It is mainly cause by worn piston rings. Also will coat your spark plugs with oily residue. Try an oil additive such as "stop smoke" or another such brand to reduce burning your oil and it may recondition your seal sand stop it all together.
