1995 mitsubishi 3000 vr4 maf sensor is not picking up any signal from the maf sensor and is a lot black smog coming up from the exhaust


Test the MAF, check the harness wiring. The black exhaust is likely because the car is running rich, due to the fact it's running on pre-programmed fuel tables since there is no signal from the MAF. The pre-programmed fuel tables are a failsafe for this reason (MAF failure); they intentionally make the car run rich to protect the engine from detonation.

Why can't I pass smog check engine light won't come on


The smog check requires a visual inspection of your check engine light. It has to come on for a bulb check at startup to make sure it's working. But, the light must go out after starting the engine(it cannot stay on after the engine starts during a smog check). If the check engine light fails either of these two tests, the vehicle will fail the smog check inspection.
You need to have the cause of your inoperative check engine light diagnosed and repaired.

Runs ******


if it smells like raw, unburned fuel, you may have an injector stuck open. i assume it clears up and drive good after a short warm up. there will be evidence of which cylinder has the bad injector by pulling out the spark plugs. the affected cylinder will be washed clean and smell like unburned fuel. the plug may also be "wet black" and of course smell like raw fuel.

The check engine light keeps turning on after I have the oxygen sensor replaced. I've had the sensor replaced 3 times as the light keeps turning on and the shop keeps telling me that that's the only thing...


are they replacing the correct sensor? try bringing it to a vw specific shop that is not a dealer! make sure the air filter is not clogged. without doing a full scan in vag-com it would be very hard to diagnose the problem

The engine 4.6 gets alot of smog,I think,the problem maybe wil be the regulator presure of fuel pump. Because was liquing gasoline throw the mofles . Do you agree? It ocurres about one minute after I...


If the smoke is white, it is caused from burning oil. It it was gas it would be black. If the smoke is coming from the exhaust pipe then the oil is leaking into the combustion chamber of the engine. If it is coming from under the hood then there is an external leak that is getting on the exhaust system and burning off.

How do i find where an exhust leak is coming


check where the headers come off of the engine exhaust leaks are generally quite loud and you will either be at the headers/exhaust manifold or just as you come off that bend there will be a flange gasket inside the two pipes joining. from the bend to the straight pipe just as it passes the gearbox and starts to straighten out.

smog pump or secondary injection pump works on cold starting to inject clean air into the exhaust pipe to help catalytic convertor to burn extra unburned fuel in exhaust gases and improve clean exhaust emissions then shuts off when catalyst reaches the right temp. so i guess your air pump is fine.
