Hi,

The correct diagnostic procedure is to have your car's computer scanned which would then display the error codes which would then point to the probable area/sensors that are faulty or would need checking/replacement.

In your particular case, this could be anything from the sparkplugs, ignition module, distributor, throttle position sensor, fuel pump and/or filter, and other sensors.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back if you are considering a DIY and what other indicators there are, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Accleration, exhaust smoke.


Sounds like you have a fuel-to-air ratio problem causing you to exhaust raw fuel from your exhaust pipe. you could have bad fuel injector, fuel pump, or carborator, if you don't have fuel injection system. Running that way for extended times will fill your engine with carbon deposits that will need to be cleaned up. Also could lead to excelerated piston ring wear. Be sure spark plugs are working properly to insure fuel is igniting. Since spark plugs are ignited via the distributor and ignition coil(s), this system should be check if spark plugs are having irregular ignition. Check timing to insure distributor is working properly. If you have changed gas from premium to regular, this could reduce your engine power, assuming that timing was adjusted to the previous gas. Check owner's manual for proper fuel usage.

Sounds like you have a either a vacuum leak or a cracked fuel line allowing extra air to be sucked into the carb fuel mixture. Make sure all small to medium sized hoses are well attached to their fittings and do not have any cracks in them.
