Dear Smoker.......Sounds to a trained ear that this little guy is gonna need a fuel pressure regulator. It is basically dumping an excessive amount of fuel with the black smoke and all and once it gets warmed up it runs a little better cause it's out of the closed loop cycle. Check the fuel pressure regulator...pull the vacuum line off of it and if you can smell gas or see gas drippin out....that regulator is junk!!! The pressure regulator is on the fuel rail on top of the motor by the way...this should cure your woes.....if not..please get back to me... I HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

Hi there:
Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be burned completely. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich." Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the least cause for alarm. Excess fuel will usually effect engine performance, reduce fuel economy, and produce a fuel odor.

How did the fuel get into the cylinder in the first place? Some of the causes of excess fuel are a carburetor that is out of adjustment, a faulty fuel pump, a leaky fuel injector, or a faulty engine computer or computer sensor. If black smoke is present, check the engine oil as in the white smoke example to make sure excess fuel has not contaminated it. Do not start the engine if a heavy, raw fuel smell can be detected in the engine oil. Call your mechanic and advise him of what you have found.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Black smoke when i start engine, very rough idle.


sounds like possible a sensor went bad or is loosly connected. O2 sensor??? Also check the air filter. Sounds like whatever it is, is making the truck run rich----that would be the black smoke.

ROUGH IDLE,WET SPARKPLUGS,KILLS


The Symptoms tell me it is a head gasket. A leaky or bad head gasket would cause all of the problems that you mentioned.

Burning water causes White Smoke, Burning Oil causes Black Smoke. The oil and water are mixing with the gas in the cylinders and causing it to run bad. Pull out the dipstick and look at the oil on it. Does it look like good oil? Or does it look watery and or foamy or grey colored. Open up the radiator and look inside, do you see oil?

This seems almost text book to me... I would have someone local to you to have a look at it to be sure.
