VW Caddy Mk2 1.9SDI, engine hunting with black smoke from exhaust.

Hi mate

I have 3 VWs and 2 Audis the VAGCOM but before you go out and spend a ton do the following

Change fuel filter
Get you a can of Seafoam

Since my tanks are only 14 gallons I used half of it every 6 months to keep injectors cleaned.

But because you have so much black smoke I will do the full can on a tank of fuel. Give it a drive it will smoke white a bit while it clears all the all junk. If that don't help that injected went to VW injector heaven.

Good luck

Most cars have a emergency fuel shut off in the trunk that shuts down fuel pump when hit in the rear end. Try to push that . Or poor some fuel into injectors then see if it will turn over.

Ethanol really causes problems in cars that sit around.Thanks for us going green huh?It decomposes non-metal parts in the gas system.If the car sits around for something like 6 weeks the gas does go bad.You have to siphon the tank as much as possible.When filling up,add octane boost first then gas.It still may not work though.I did all that for a scooter and it still didn't work.So if you try it,when you add gas,probably only use 4 or 5 gallons,so you don't waste too much money if it doesn't work,and it is enough to mix the octane boost fairly well.Good luck bro'!That's all i have for now.And gas is gas no matter where you buy it.All those additives the companies claim clean this or that is just sales.Since fuel injection came out,companies are required to add a certain amount of detergent to keep injectors clean anyways.And 93 octane is not better than 87 octane enough to pay 20 cents more per gallon.

Make sure all lines are light when turning engine over.While turning engine over loosen the a line closes to pump or the fuel filter.You should get some fuel.Then continue on all lines working farther away.

I ran out of gas in my 1993 chevy silverado 350 now its running like hesitant and sputtering , how can i fix this problem

1st check the Fuel Pressure. Often times a fuel injection system fuel Pump ran dry, can more or less implode, the suction becomes too strong and ruins the diaphragm, thus causing low-to-no pressure. faulty fuel pumps can run just slightly under the fuel injection systems Low tolerance, causing the issues that you have mentioned. this is not 100% the answer just a good place to start. Low fuel pressure= change fuel filter, still low pressure= fuel pump. The cheap carport mechanic method would be to change filters first, if the have been changed recently, move toward replacing the Fuel Pump. (some pump are located in the fuel tank, if yours is not your in luck!)

99 ram diesel wont start

Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

I have a 88 chev 350 p/u-how do I make the fuel richer or leaner?

1988 should be fuel injected. The ECM controls the fuel mixture and it isn't adjustable. What kind of problem do you have? If it is 1 ton or bigger truck it might have a carburetor. If it does, let me know, I will tell you how to adjust it.
