Sounds like you have to much gas going thru the throttle body. When you put your foot on the gas it opens the airway and lets air and no gas. The black smoke is unburned gas. Replace the throttle body and you should be good to go. It could be the fuel sensor also, telling the pump the wrong info.

Truck wont start


Starter fluid won't work if the starter won't turn the engine over.

Get the battery load tested...it may not have enough juice to start the truck but have enough to light up the lights

check your fuses and battery connections at the starter. Is the anti theft light flashing? If it is that's your problem. Wait 10 minutes insert the key...wait for the theft light to go out before trying to start.

if that doesn't work you will need to get the starter checked...which means you will have to take it off.

1995 f 350 after starting the truck the starter motor wont turn off


It is probably turning off, but it is sticking out. It is not retracting back from the flywheel so the engine is still turning it. You may be able to fix the starter, with a rebuild on the gear or just get a new starter.

How do I get truck started after its been sitting for months


Charge up the battery with a battery charger or jump start the truck with a good battery. Connect the jumper leads from the good battery to the battery on the truck.
Connect the red lead from the + terminal on the good battery to the + (plus) terminal on the truck.
Connect the black lead from the - terminal on the good battery to the - (minus) terminal on the truck.
The good battery will supply power to the starter motor.
Then you can turn the key to start the truck.

I have a 2001 chevy silverado 4.3 liter and it wont start if its been raining and sits longer than 10 hours after i drive it after a couple days it will fire right back up and run perfectly fine ive tested...


Pull the o2 sensor out of the exhaust pipe if possible and see if the truck will start. If it starts and runs at all then you need to check the catalytic converter and muffler as one of them is blocked off inside and it most likely is the cat. When this happens it won't allow fuel to get to the engine cylinders and the truck to start. Hope this helps.
