If you don't find that vacuum leak,( which is a common cause too) look with a scan tool at the reading on reported intake air temperature sensor. It should be within 10 Deg of your ambient temperature.
An air temperature sensor fault can cause flooding/starving of the engine. Some of the ones I've seen will report temperatures over 50F higher than the normal air temperature and fluctuate rapidly. Such a jump really affects how the computer calculates the mixture.
hope that helps some...

If you are running black smoke that usually means there is oil and gas mixing together too rich. You probably have a seal somewhere that is gone in the engine.
To fix this try to make the gas mixture a little less (you can change the amount of gas going to your truck, but its better someone who knows what they are doing to do this. You can also run a thicker oil, and possibly put in some oil fixer you can buy stuff at canadian tire or something like that which goes in with the oil and it will help seal cracks and holes in the motor.
