Fuel pressure regulator diaphram is probably ruptured.
Pull vacuum line from pressure regulator and if fuel is present, the regulator needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: running rich and blowing black smoke

Could be a number of different things.Fuel pressure relief valve not working,injector pulse too long,Is the air box lid securely fastened and air cleaner clean.Are there no leaks between the air box and throttle body(intake tube).Have you checked oxy sensor.air flow meter may be also possible.Try squeezing the flexible fuel hose enough to allow the engine to run and see if the engine reacts better if it does you have excessive fuel pressure.

SOURCE: 1988 chevy scottsdale truck shutting off

I had an identical problem with my 88 Scottsdale. After a week of head scratching by my local dealer, and $1000. worth of shop diagnostic time, they found a bad distributor shaft. Apparently, there is some sort of star wheel on the end of the shaft which has lost magnetism. Replace the shaft.

SOURCE: white smoke from exhaust

Hello;
The white smoke is from coolant entering the combustion chamber(s). Coolant can enter through the water passages sealed bu the head gasket. You have probably blown a head gasket. You should check your coolant level. You may have acracked head if you continue to drive it and overheat. The temp gauge only reads when exposed to coolant, not air. Take out thhe spark plugs and look them over. A white glossy apperance will indicate water in the combustion chamber. You may need to surface the head once you have it removed so that it is flat. Hope this helps.
Thanks;

First, the basics...

How many miles are on the vehicle? Is it the original trans?
With engine running, in park, and idling, did you check your transmission dipstick to see if the fluid is low?
Is the fluid on the dipstick darker colored and have a burnt smell?
(Good fluid should be pink to red, not brown)

Engine running bad at idle


There are several causes for this, including the above.
Check the spark plugs and coils/wires. Lose or worn parts can cause this. If the spark plugs have thick black residue, you have an oil leak. A flat black powdery residue is too much air. A thick crusty white/yellowish residue would be a coolant leak.
If it is blowing blue or white smoke when running, the you have an oil (blue) coolant (white) leak that needs to be fixed. Normal smoke is grayish in color.
Check all the vacuum lines as a leak may be the problem.

Hi,
It sounds like you have alot of problems which may only be a couple.
Have the coolant thermistor checked, it sounds like this is not switching off and causing the engine to over fuel, making it run rough and blow black smoke out the exhaust.
Have the engine thermostat checked it maybe faulty causing the engine to over heat., have these done and see how you cars goes then.

My 1997 lesabre runs fine until Im at a stop then it idles ruff it is less sever when in park but bad when im stop using the brakes


Could be the Idle Air Control if so equipped. The smoother idle is because when in neutral or park, there is no drag on the engine from the transmission.
