2000 plymouth voyager has white smoke from exhaust that smells strongly of gas. It runs great, but does not get very good gas milrage compared to the one I had before. What is the problem?


A bad coolant temp sensor causes the ECM to read-36 degrees. So the ECM will dump fuel because it thinks it's really cold out. A stuck open T stat will cause this, not as bad as the sensor though. Injectors that stuck open will also dump fuel all the time.

2002. Why does it emit black smoke and has a gas smell?


black smoke on acceleration is from a rich running engine. the fuel smell can also be from the same but please make sure u dont have an extermal fuel leak. that could be dangerous and a strong smell would occur. have ur engine computer system scanned for possible codes or if its a carbeuretor sounds like the float may be sticking or a msadjusted choke or carb assembly. hope this helps

Could be a faulty O2 sensor. The sensor would not take action until the engine warmed up. Have you checked for trouble codes in the engine computer ?

1989 silverado 2500 wont start after it has been run a distance on the highway it just acts choked up and smokes black as it is trying to clear out


If this is a gas operated vehicle with injectors it would be strange. But if it has a TBI system then something is causing a fault so it dumps fuel and floods the engine. If this has a Rochester 4 barrel your float is faulty or the needle and seat is sticking open and dumping fuel and causing this. There is also 1 other thing that can do this and if it has a carb, it could also be the butterfly or thottle plate at the top of the carb closing from vacuum. make sure the hoses if any are connected to the choke system, and or any wire that feeds electrical current to the choke. Unless someone rebuilt it and did not correctly reassemble it. or put the choke spring on the wrong side of the notch for the upper butterfly. Then this would close the butterfly as it warms up and then choke the engine..never know..could have been a monday or friday....good luck

Acts like the choke is stuck closed it won't stay started and runs ruff until engine warms up then its fine. What do i do?


Well the choke has an electric part that heats up and makes the choke open in a few minutes. As soon as the engine starts the choke should open about 25 percent by way of a vac pull-off.
You can take the air cleaner off and watch the choke while someone starts the engine cold. If the choke does not open after it starts, check the choke pull-off. You can also open the choke with a screwdriver to see if the engine clears up.

My 82 chevy g20 van is running really rich i changed the plugs but still get alot of black smoke out the exhuast. i can smell its running rich. also the engine temp does not get very high. im thinking the...


Take your carb cover off and see if the top butterfly valve is open when engine is warm. If not the choke is sticking. Also be sure your air filter is clean (or new) because a dirty air filter acts as a choke if too dirty.

Now starting when cold, it belches black smoke and runs very roug


Sounds like either the float level is too high, there is a problem with the float needle valve or the power valve is stuck. I'd take the carb off and either replace it or take it apart and check everything inside. If you do nothing, chances are it will either get worse or if it's a small piece of junk inside, it may clear up by itself...I'd take it apart. Since it's pretty new, if you are careful, likely you won't need a gasket kit.
