Check the seal aroud the accelerator shaft on the pump. If the seal leaks reduced pressure in the pump will not allow the governor system to work properly The smoke color is the give away to a faulty pump

SOURCE: '95 Honda Civic EX will not start after cleaning fuel injectors

I would talk to who cleaned the injectors, I don't know if it something they did or not. It could be a stuck open injector. The exhaust would have a raw fuel odor if it was. What it sounds like is a blown headgasket, which can just happen. The exhaust would have a sweet smell to it. Usually starts as a small leak (between cyl. 2 & 3), the engine burns the coolant while driving which you don't see. Then the coolant level gradually drops to a point where the car overheats, which warps the head, causing a large leak. Now you see the coolant burning (white smoke).
Good luck Honda Al

SOURCE: fuel filter on picaso 2.0 litre diesal engine

Black smoke from a diesel engine does not mean you have to change the fuel filter.It is caused by the air filter being dirty.That you need to change.Anyway if you want to change the fuel filter it is located at the front middle of the engine in a black plastic round case with notches around the top.Good luck hope that was helpfull.

My 04 Kia Optima will start but then it runs rough. It acts like I might have trash or water in my fuel line. Does anyone know where the fuel line filter is located, also could this be a problem with fuel...

Put a can of a product called "Seafoam" in the gas tank. Also do the following procedure.

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
