The air dosen't mix in the injectors. The injectors spray atomized fuel directly into the cylds . The air comes in through the intake and is mixed in the intake manifold or cylds. The computer and sensors regulate the amount of fuel to air intake . Did you check ror any codes . Is engine light on?

Should fire be coming out carburator with the air disconected when im trying to start it

Well you don't have a carb, you have a throttle body and injectors.
But the answer is no you should not have any fire there.
Could be some plug wires mixed up, or the intake valves are not closing.
You can check the firing order for the plug wires and run a compression test to check the valves.

How do i fix black smoke coming from the exhaust

check/replace injector tips
check turbo for correct operation
check inter-cooler system for leaks
check pump for over fueling and calibration
clean/replace the air filter
black smoke is excessive fuel for the amount of air available or fuel not atomizing correctly so the fuel droplets are too big to mix completely with available air

Volvo 850 tight engine - injectors + oil leak from top of cam cover

could be from
bad injectors
air in fuel
leakdown from problem pressure regulator valve
glo-plugs not operating
pump not producing the desired pressure
at this point I suspect that injectors/ pump need reconditioning as the unit is 21 years old probably never having either serviced
take it to an accredited diesel specialist shop for a proper diagnosis and quote

What are the advantages of using an injector car compared to carburettors? Is the injector better than carburettor?

Injectors are better!
Fuel injected engine is..........
  • More fuel efficient
  • Don't need to mix air & fuel manually.
  • Works in any altitude.
  • Faster distribution of air/fuel to the combustion.
  • Maintenance free( multiple fuel filters ).
Now a days all cars are electronically controlled fuel injectors, 50 years ago they use mechanical ijnectors.
Info on carb uses are other way around of the injectors.
More info will be in this site

Would a quart extra of oil fowl the plugs or plug the injectors

I am not certain that an extra quart of oil would give you the problems that you are asking about, but overfilling your crankcase does increase the pressure inside the crankcase and may force oil where it shouldn't be going. In particular, your EGR system might start sucking up much more oil vapor or even liquid oil and mixing it back into the fuel stream going into your engine. I have had carbureted vehicles with tired engines (i.e., a lot of blow-by and oil vapor in the head) where the plugs have fouled because I have drawn too much oil vapor into the fuel system--in those systems, the EGR valve fed back into the air box, so the air being drawn in to mix with gasoline was laden with a lot of oil vapor. That fouled the spark plugs quite nicely, and I'd have to change or at least clean the plugs after a while to keep the engine running properly.

I am less persuaded that excess oil vapor can plug your fuel injectors. The injectors are designed to squirt a precise amount of gasoline into the air that's being drawn into the engine. The "oily air" would never be on the high pressure side of the fuel injectors. I suppose it's possible that oil could be deposited on the outside of the fuel injector in such quantities that the injector wouldn't spray in a proper pattern, reducing engine performance. However, the fix for that would be pretty simple: remove the fuel injector and carefully clean the outside of the injector with a serious gum-cutter like Berkebile 2+2 (which is much more potent than standard carb cleaner). That fix would be both faster and cheaper than disassembling the injectors to clean their internal parts.

Getting a lean burn error code on banks 1 & 2. reset it and drove 250 miles before it came back on. Reset it again but the code came back within 10 miles. Checked for vacuum leaks, none found, replaced...

Check for vacuum leaks.

Air tube between air filter and intake manifold.

If the motor has over 80,000 miles then the intake manifold gasket can **** in air and leaning out the air/fuel mixture.

Give each air / vacuum relayed hose a 1/8-1/4 turn.

Get a steam cleaning on the motor and check for any sign of leak around the sensors.
