Excessive emission

Tune ups can radically change emission output due to the burn ratios. By burn ratios I mean the ratio of air, fuel mixture and time/amount of spark. If your burning to much or not enough fuel due to one of the fore mentioned it can cause nasty emissions. Not enough spark causes the ignition of the fuel to be delayed and hence a increase in the amount of fuel burned upon ignition, which increases bad emissions. Exhaust leaks or the catalytic convertor being well used are both culprits also. Exhaust leaks cause particles within normal emissions to solidify within the exhaust (most commonly carbon) then down the line they heat up and burn away into bad emissions. There is always some carbon build up within the exhaust system which is what the catalytic convertor is for. It acts as a filter to scrub away the carbon and other nasty particulates from the exhaust gases. Some of the particulates within will burn up due to normal use and create bad exhaust so when the convertor has a significant build up it needs to be replaced. A plugged catalytic convertor forces the engine to burn exhaust with the air and fuel when mixing which is not a good idea because it retards the engine (definitely bad for the environment and the engine - and the pocket book). I have seen a cheap and seemingly mundane fix work on numerous occasion, simply replace the gas cap. It has to due with the cap making a seal. If it does not seal properly the tank can suck in air during usage which lets more air into the fuel lines when pumped, which in turn increases the air to fuel mixture when sparked. That is always the cheapest fix but keeping up all other things with regular maintenance all really help the environment. Without proper testing it is impossible to guess what the actual culprit is but I hope this has helped both you and the environment.

I have a 1993 pick up hardbody' a lot of black smoke coming out and idle is rough..any suggestions on what may be the problem?

With the black smoke, it sounds like it's running rich (too much gas going into the motor). Remove a spark plug and take a look at it- if it's all black and sooty, then yes, your motor's running too rich and you need to lean out the fuel mixture. I'm not positive, but that truck probably has a carburetor and you could do the adjustment yourself, with a little help from a shop manual. If it's fuel injected, you'll want to take it to a shop or a friend that knows what they're doing to get it adjusted right again.

If the spark plug has little tiny clumps of stuff stuck to it you're burning oil, and that's a bigger problem. An oil leak means a fairly major engine rebuild is in store for you. If it is burning oil, I'd just drive it like it is until it eventually conks out or something else goes wrong on it. Unless, of course, the truck is special to you and worth investing in an engine rebuild...

Good luck!

420 code catalyst system efficiency below threshold (bank 1). EGR replaced along with both upstream and downstream 02 sensors on bank 1. Check engine light keeps coming on.

You could have an enefficient converter. Question is what caused it to go bad? I have attended seminars on code 420, Possible causes are lack of spark or clogged fuel injectors. there have been times where the spark plug wire lays on the engine and over time it wears a weak spot in the side of the wire, its not enough to throw a miss fire code but it keeps the full amount of spark from getting to the plug and not burning the all the fuel in the cyl. A leaky injector would also cause to much fuel to be deliverd into the cyl and not get burned.

Hope this helps.

Blue smoke

Chances are if you are blowing blue smoke, you are burning oil.  Another cause of blue tint smoke is you are burning to much fuel and not enough air.  If the engine does not act erratic or acts like it is flooding out, then I would say you are burning oil.  The most common problem found with burning oil is either worn piston rings, bad valve seats/seals.  If the engine has high mileage, I would recommend any type of oil treatment.  Change your oil, filter included, use some form of engine treatment, run it for a few hundred miles, and rechange your oil and filter again.  If your engine has over 100,000 miles, I would highly recommend using an oil that is made for high mileage engines.  As this oil has additives that will help ease the aging engine.  If this doesn't work for you, I would say you need to have the rings and valve seals replaced.  You can do this yourself with a little knowledge of engines and pick yourself up a Haynes Manual at your local auto parts store if you do not already have one.  Hope this helps.  Feel free to comment if you need more assistance.  Please don't forget to rate.  Thanks!

Gas mixed in with engine oil

sounds like you have an injector that is staying open all the time,and dumping fuel all the time and not only when its time.It is most likely the one where the plug keeps fouling.The engine light is probally showing a misfire on that cylinder also,please take it to a qualified tech to have scanned and checked

New spark plugs gone out

If the odor is not heavy gasoline, then they appear to be oil fouled. The cheap fix is to buy at any auto parts store oil burning plugs or sleeves, these will keep the spark plugs slightly further out of the cylinder, out of the oils way, and should provide a reasonable resolution.

Check the PCV valve and hose, if they clog they will cause oil to enter engien cylinders. keep me posted
