Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid
When I go up a steep hill, black smoke comes out of my exhaust. There is carbon built up and I don't know why. Please give some advice
There are a number of things that can cause this condition. First, be sure the engine is properly tuned-up. Have the spark plug and plug wires been replaced? Distributor cap and rotor, fuel filter and oxygen sensor? Then scan PCM (computer) for fault codes. This will tell you if any engine control components have failed. Also check for vacuum leaks or bad vacuum hoses.
