SOURCE: Black exhaust smoke only for the first 30 seconds,

I'd take the time to stop in at an Autozone, or PEP boys, and ask about a freescan for trouble codes, and see what comes up. May be sensor on it's way out, this will hopefully confirm my suspicions, and hopefully narrow it down to 1 instead of 3 possibles.

SOURCE: engine running problems

That is the classic sign of a faulty electrical control component and the problem could be that the ignition module on the side of the distributor is most likely faulty, and when the ignition module gets too hot the engine will mis-fire and can even stop running. Also, remove the distributor cap and inspect the connector from the pick-up coil/stator where the ignition module connects to it, and if the connector is dark or burnt looking then also replace the pick-up coil/stator or the entire distributor. Be sure to check that the spark plugs have not been carbon fouled from the engine mis-firing. Here are some images to assist you.

Also, there is the possibility that there might be a fault with the fuel pump, and a fuel pressure gauge would be the best way to determine if the fuel pump is faulty, and the ECU (Engine Control Unit) might be faulty. However, the symptoms that you describe seem to be more that of the ignition module.

I had the same problem with my 93 K2500 it only has 159000 on it. It was my catalytic converter, drop the Y pipe going into your exhaust manifold then drive it. You should feel an immediate difference. You can replace it or cut it open if your state doesn't have emission laws. It cost me around 250 and a couple hours of work.

My 92 maxima se just died as i was driving it.i put gas in it and it ran for 2 miles then died again


could be a fuel pump. hammer on the gas tank and see if it tries to start. if not then spray carb cleaner or starting fluid into the air intake and see if it starts and runs for a few seconds if so your looking at a bad fuel pump most likely.

92 SL1 won't start, turns over but not getting gas, or floods


Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too
