Black smoke usually means burning too much gas. The problem is the IAC idle air control. I would also replace the TPS

Black smoke from exhaust, rough idle, black soot on plugs


signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator-- the vehicle will run rough, the engine will not start ( usually in the mornings,) many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fouled plugs. replacement is only cure. 1- black soot on plugs-2-black smoke from tailpipe-3- running rough-4- stalling, good-day! repost if need be.

I helped a friend with a similar problem on his T&C. No check engine code. It was a dirty MAF sensor.
You can get special MAF spray cleaner at your local auto parts store.
As I recall, the sensor is located between the air fliter and the throttle body.
Remove the sensor from the air inlet.
Spray the sensor, soak, spray, soak, etc. Take your time. But, do NOT scrub it with a brush or cloth. Spray only.

2002 town and country. Van tends to stall until it warms up.


first off, make sure air filter is clean and free of dirt and dust. next remove and clean the ( IAC ) idle air control. this regulates the idling of vehicle, and if it is all gummed up it will not idle properly. or replace it! make sure the port where iac is free and clear of soot and deposits, in manifold itself. this should help unless it needs plugs. feel free to repost if need be. have a good day !

My 2005 Town & Country (3.3L Engine) 114K miles is acting strange. I often have difficulty keeping the engine running. For example the ignition key turns just fine but doesn't sustain the engine on...


New air cleaner needed? That's the simple, cheap fix. Happened to my wife's Volvo once. Thought the EFI was toast and the air cleaner was caked with gunk. Maybe dirty injectors. Try some fuel additive to clean them.

If it is the EFI system, maybe something simple like idle control valve (happened on my newish Subaru), or one of the other sensors: TPS, O2, MAP/MAF, etc. It simply sounds like it is running too lean or rich at idle. Injectors could be bad too. Sounds like you need a different mechanic.

Our 2005 Chrysler Town and Country van dies at stop lights and stop signs. We can drive it for about 25 miles into town, and then around town with no stalling, but once we turn it off one time and restart...


My suspicion is that your egr valve is sticking slightly ajar which will cause the engine to falter at idle speed. The valve is located near the throttle body air intake at the end of the engine, mounted in a small diameter pipe that recirculates exhaust gas from the rear cylider bank exhaust manifold back around to just below the intake manifold where the air from the filter enters the throttle body. The exhaust gases have some fumes that can plate out a crud on the valve stem and thus keep it from closing tight when you are start or at idle. That makes for a too lean mixture so the engine stalls. The valve proper is mounted horizontally with the stem visible in a space between the body of the valve mounted on the pipe and the round top of the valve which is flanged and so if you look carefully you will see a metal rod (stem of the valve) with a slot around its circumference. You can take the tip of flat blade screwdriver and insert it in the slot and then lever the valve back and forth to check if it is moving freely (against spring action in one direction) or not. If it doesn't seem to close easily with the help of the built-in spring, then I would spray the base of the stem with solvent from a pressure can (such as WD-40 or carb cleaner) while moving the stem back and forth.

Black smoke points to unburnt fuel. I would start by replacing the spark plugs and wires if you have not done so in the last couple of years.
