SOURCE: Had exhaust manifold replaced since then my 2001 caravan bucks and blows black smoke little to no power

if you replaced the manifold because it was cracked the look for a plugged cat convertor..the cracked manifold was probably letting the exhaust escape..now it builds too much back pressure

Your engine is toast. The black smoke indicates more than likely your valve seals are leaking oil into the combustion chamber or the piston rings are shot.

SOURCE: 02dodge ram ,running rough, black smoke out exhaust

Take it to an Autozone or O'Reillys and they will test the computer for you. It should have set a code, but you don't know if the code light works so its your best bet. Sounds like it is running rich and the crankshaft module is not advancing the timing.

SOURCE: my dodge caravan 2001 is bringing out black smoke

it is usually one of the O2 sensors is bad/i had the same problem with my 2001 dodge grand caravan sport/it may not be the muffler or the catalytic converter necessarily. take the car to either autozone or oreilly's and have them put the engine code reader on it/its free and only takes a minute/ my car has (2) O2 sensors. it would be best to give your VIN number to the dealer so they can tell you which of 4 possible O2 sensors you will need. then you can compare and shop online for the part. Some O2 sensors have 2 wires, some 3, and some 4 so there isn't just 1 part it could be. some O2 sensors also have very short wiring harnesses, so if you get one, make sure the wiring on it is long, not short, or the mechanic is going to have to rig it to make it work.

SOURCE: I have blue smoke coming

Blue smoke is usually an indication of bad rings, which allows engine oil to be burned as you drive. The fix requires engine teardown, pulling off the heads, removing the oil pan, and removing the crankshaft, rods, and pistons. The cylinders may need to be bored, but at the least they will need cleaned up with a hone. The old rings taken off and new rings istalled. If the engine needed bored, then new pistons must be installed. Then, put it all back together.

Hope this helps you

Will a leaking manifold cause Black plugs & smoke?


yes, the o2 sensor will pick up a lean condition and command the injectors to richen up. you must fix any exhaust manifold leak to assure the 02 sensors will get the correct air/fuel mixture.

Will a leaking manifold cause black smoke & black


by all means the answer is yes. the 02 sensors will pick up this leak and fatten up the injectors(more fuel) due to raw air coming in to the exhaust.

2003 Dodge grand caravan 6chlyder having black smoke. what should i due to stop it.


Black smoke is caused by an overly rich fuel/air mixture. This will cause your Dodge to use excess fuel and can damage the catalytic converter. The Check Engine light should be on at this time. I suggest you take it to a professional for repair.

Well is the smoke coming out the exhaust BLUE or BLACK if Blue then its due to engine burning oil ..ie,,Piston rings /Valve seals etc etc
If Black then its fuel to much fuel going in engine and not being burnt.
