Pathfinder 05, black smoke and does not respond to pedal

My pathfinder will start but but idle violently, does not respond to acceleration pedal and black smoke coming out from exhaust.
Mechanic replaced O2 sensor and engine tune up before this happened.
Nissan dealer changed the fuel pump and still no fix.
Any idea?

Is there a mechanical problem with my 98 Ford falcon when accelerator pedal is flat to floor and when you release accelerator a puff of black smoke comes from exhaust

Probably not a problem as black smoke is a sign that too much fuel went into the engine. This is especially true when engine is cold and in choke or "cold start sequence".

Black smoke from exhaust

Hi Paul,
I think you're right - it sounds like you're running to RICH (too much fuel / not enough air), but I would think that you'd see the check engine light on.
If you are too rich, there's probably an O2 sensor or other computer issue going on - and if allowed to persist, you'll probably end up with a clogged catalytic converter. As long as the sensor / computer is adjusting your air : fuel ratio, there little you can do to override it. I believe the computer will continue to adjust the mixture to get what it wants to see by the O2 sensor in the exhaust.
Bring it to a mechanic / dealer to get this fixed correctly - before you waste any more fuel or cause additional problems with the cat converter or other parts.

Good luck!

Car dies if accelerator is not engaged

the starting problem could be head gasket if it got really hot..... black smoke wouldn't be oil, and gas would stink but not black smoke if it's old, it wouldn't really matter if it had been sitting for 4 months. black smoke is probably caused by a gas mixture problem, or maybe a stuck fuel injector.
