Hello there,when i starts z car in z morning,blue smoke comes out.Is that normal please.And z car miss fires if i accelerate suddenly.I have changed z distributor,spark plugs n wires.Z car is of carburator...

The blue smoke is OIL, coming from bad seals in the valves. It drains into the cylinders overnight and when you start the car it burns the oil off. This is probably fouling your plugs and if backfiring will fould the carburator. The miss firing is due to the age and most likely the timing of your engine, along with fouled plugs and carb.

2002 Mercury Sable-shakes with acceleration

You describe this as an acceleration problem however, if the car does throw a check engine light it should be recorded in system memory so it can be pulled by scanning with and OBDII scanner. It sounds as if the car is being starved for fuel on acceleration. Check the fuel lines for kinks as well as check the fuel pressure. The problem could be a faulty fuel pump that has yet to completely die.

try to have your intake manifold and air filter cleaned. Also, try to replace the fuel filter. these are usually the culprits for the problem that you are experiencing.

Won't run much raster than idle speed

Since there is no background to this, I assume at some point in time, the motor ran ok for you...

The first thing to do is to drain one of your carburators into a glass jar to check for water. If there is water, you will see it separate from the fuel in a couple of minutes. The water is on the bottom. If there is water, you will need to flush the motor with good fuel, one carburator at a time and probably will have to pump your tank.

If there is no water, the easiest thing to try is the following...when the motor starts to bog down, activate the choke. (If you have a side mount box that activates the choke when the fast idle lever is all the way up), you will have to have someone go back to the engine and manually pull the choke lever out. If the motor picks up, the motor is most likely in need of a carb job.

You can then do a cylinder drop test while motor is idleing, momentarily pulling the spark plug wires off of the spark plugs one at a time. If you pull one off and the engine speed does not change, listen for spark at the spark plug connector to the engine. If you hear the clicking of spark spark is probably ok. The issue with that cylinder is probably fuel related...probably a clogged carburator. If one carb is not functioning correctly, they all probably need some work. If you are not into mechanical stuff, you should have a dealer do the work. After the carbs are cleaned, they need to be adjusted for proper idle and idle/air mixture as well as vacuum balanced . If you are going to attempt it yourself be sure to by a manual either from Honda or one after market.

Before the carb job, a good dealer will always do at least a compression and spark check to be sure there is not an internal issue. The spark plugs should be checked at this time and changed out if they look questionable. Only use NGK DR7EA spark plugs not a substitute.

Also, check your oil and be sure it is clean and at the proper level.

There are several other things that it can be, but this is the most common.

I changed fuel filters, air filters, and now spark plugs and wires in my 92 Olds. Cutlass Ciera because I wasn't making it up hill, bucking and jumping if I had to accelerate quickly. Now the car has a...

Depending on where you bought the spark plug wires/plugs you could have a defective one even though they are new. I bought plugs/wires from O'Reillly's and it turned out the plug wires were bad even though they were new. Car ran even worse than before I did the work. Napa autoparts sells the best plug wires I have ever used Belden Maxx....Other than that you could have an ignition coil that has gone bad. They should run about $30 each and are not that hard to change out on that vehicle. See if someone can test those for you. Also you may want to pull each spark plug out and make sure that it is gapped properly. You can call any parts place or dealer and ask them what is the spark plug gap for that vehicle. Even if they say they are pre-gapped from the factory it is essential to always check this yourself and make sure that each one is gapped properly. Hope this helps you.

Car sputtering

You probably need the carbureator cleaned and rebuilt. The transition from idle to midrange flow is clogged. The accelerator pump diaphragm is proobably weak and worn to the point of near failure. Hope this helps.

Noise coming from the carburator

hello there does it make a hissing or sucking kind of noise ? if so this sounds like there is a split in the induction pipe(the pipe that comes from the carb to the air filter), this would cause the car to take in to much air hence lack of acceleration,so check pipe for splits .also you could cup your hand round the pipe while someone is revving the car for you, work your way down the pipe to see if you can feel any suction if so the pipe is split thanx please rate me if you found this usefull
