Hello,

The black smoke blowing from your 1987 Nissan Pickup is an indication that your engine is either due for servicing or the engine is getting to the end of it's life span.

First, have you serviced your engine of when last did you service your engine? If you have serviced the engine and it's still blowing out the black smoke, then it means your engine is wearing out.

There is what we call "Ringing" here in my country. That is to say that the engine can be ringed. This will make the engine still serve you longer instead of you getting another engine. This will save cost.

Black smoke is not a good sign from the engine. So, you will have to contact your mechanic, in order to proceed with the ringing...

Good luck.

Ok, it sounds as though your fuel pressure regulator or injector lines or injectors are leaking. What engine is in the vehicle? Is the engine light flashing? Does it start hard and blow smoke on startup?

Bad miss & erratic idle can be the T.P.S. had the same problem on an 89 S10 & 91 Sonoma. As for black smoke sounds like oil in cylinders. If the truck has REALLY bad blow by & REALLY worn P.C.V. Valve that can make it smoke too. If not then probably the piston rings with that many miles.

Hi,

It sounds like a problem with the idle air control valve. However, the possibilities are too numerous to explore here. I suggest that you drive to the nearest AutoZone and get a FREE diagnostic scan and get back to me,

All the best,

Hello,

Black smoke is usually a sign of the accelerator pump set wrong, a choke plate could be partially closed and it could also be a really clogged air filter. If you pulled the air filter and the car turned on with no problems then replace it as this is one of the reasons for black smoke. It's not often a gas vehicle blows black smoke. The vehicle is starving for air.

Motor starving for fuel pump ok pressure 100lbs book calls for 44lbs which do I replace the fuel pump relay or pressure regulator engine will not Idle with pedal too floor only 2000rpm


sounds like the regulator is not doing it's job, but you say starving? Is the engine running lean or rich? Is there black smoke coming out the exhaust? I'm thinking high pressure would normally cause a rich condition.

Thats a classic sign of having your engine run too rich. That puffy layer of ash is carbon which means your engine is not burning gas properly or completely which means is misfiring thats why the car is shaking. Try having your oxygen sensors checked and make sure you are using good fuel.
