Try removing the fuel filler cap and drive it to see if it makes a difference? Let us know how you get on.

SOURCE: i cant remember where my leeds go on my distributor cap

how many cylinders? for 4 the firing order is 1342 for example--if you have 6 or 8 lookit up on the net and you will find the firing order and then just count round the distibutor and hook up accordingly--modern cars don't have this issue--no distributor.

SOURCE: I have a 1997 Mitsubishi Galant with rough idle

I am having the same issue on Mitsubishi Galant 02. Clattering on acceleration, herky jerky idle. Pulled a code multiple cylinder misfire. My mechanic's diagnosis is bad valve cover gasket causing oil to seap into the spark plugs and bad timing belt, which I have not replaced at 150k miles. I do however know my fuel injectors do need cleaning, he hasn't ruled that out either. Have you pulled any code on it? I have read on engine knock sensor going out on some of these also. Hope this helps some.

Blowing black smoke


far too much fuel not getting completely burned upon iginition.
That leads on to look at:
-fouled fuel injectors, (clean them - run injector cleaner)
-lack of air to the intake (filter and clear out tubing),
-spark plugs are fouled, (replace them, ensure wires seated correctly on plug)
-ignition power is low or partial, (ignition system module not sending enough electricity to plugs)
-ignition wires are bad, (check/replace)
-ECM is failing or getting bad sensor readings. (shop diagnosis)
-cat convertors have been removed and sensors are at fault
Its a long list -- do the easy stuff yourself, leave hard stuff to a shop diagnosis.

Your car has both a crank and cam position sensor. First start with your crankshaft position sensor. It is located by the harmonic balancer on the front of the motor.

1983 oldsmobile cutless supreme blows black smoke in back fires gas runs fast. it ran fine bout 3weeks. itz runing back rough.already put a tune up on it. took one of tha plugs out in it was black.


Check for a worn out timing chain

Then when that has been replace, check the
distributor timing & wires.

Check for leaking injectors
May have to mail them away to be cleaned

Check engine light is on, emmissions said o2 sensor out replaced sensor replaced plugs,rotor ,cap and wires still idels rough and floods


95 16v ?
what DTC, post DTC? why skip that,... there are many 02 DTC.
most fail for heater, dead,
lets play a game. say;
1: CEL out running, is it , now?
2: you did the 60k by the book, did you? if not why not?
3: checked spark timing, its good, not way off, is it?
the 60k requires a new Timing belt, ever check that, or the timing of the cam? or compression, if not why not.?
no motor can run right with all or any of those stated items bad.
is the fuel filter packed up. 60k.
lets now pretend the 60k was done and done right.
click 60k here

"what can make my 95 very rich?,"
Ill pretend it's a MPI 16v engine, not TBI. big differences that.
The 16v has 4 injectors, quad trouble !
rich? you never said under what conditions, hot or cold?
ill pretend, its all the time. rich. not just cold or hot.
1: engine never reaches 180F and holds there (miniumum)
does it? if not it will run rich forever. the ECU thinks its cold all the time and guess what it is.
2: Exhaust cracks, near the 02 sensors, making said sensor useless (new or old)
3: fuel pressure not near 30psi ($20 gage) found at 60. opps. bad.
4: leaking injectors.
5: clogged injectors, (seems odd but is true) ask.(complex)
there is an order to finding this.

Engine light came on....code reads oxygen


does the jeep run rough and blow black smoke if so it will be the oxygen sensor if not i would try plugs and a air filter.

Make sure the coolant is full, then change the coolant sensor near the thermostat housing. This will put the car into advanced timing mode again. Do not over torque the sensor. 14ft.lbs or less as needed to stop seapage. Good luck!

85 mr2 check engine light on


I would start by performing tune up. Change the sparkplugs and wires, and change the air filter.

Check the timing of the engine. Make sure the timing is correct (please check the green book for the correct timing...)

In my experience, it sounds like you have a bad oxygen sensor. Replace this sensor, then keep the battery disconnected for at least 30 minutes, then reconnect the battery and drive the car through it's paces (stop and go, acceleration, cruising, etc...).

Disconnectingthe battery will cause the ECU to reset, then driving around will cause the ECU to once again reprogram itself as necessary.

When the oxygen sensor goes bad in these models, it tends to make the car run with too much fuel, although sometimes too lean, and it tends to overheat the engine.

Good luck!

Runs fine when cold , when wamed up , spits and sputters, at low rpm. blows black smoke, wont ldle?


Sounds like an oxygen sensor problem. O2 sensors have to be warmed up to around 900 degrees to properly operate, so until they're up to temperature, the ECU ignores them and fuels the engine on preprogrammed fueling maps stored in the ECU. Once they're up to operating temperature, they provide feedback to the computer for properly fueling the engine. Blowing black smoke indicates a rich condition (excessive fuel), which usually is the result when and oxygen sensor is defective. The computer realizes the O2 sensor isn't working right and goes to a rich-fueling map for the engine. Rich running is not damaging, other than it can foul spark plugs and (if untreated for a long enough period) could clog the catalytic converter. This is better than a lean condition (too little fuel) which superheats the cylinders and causes them to detonate, which can fatally damage the engine. I would change out the primary oxygen sensors and see if your problems go away. You may need to get new spark plugs as well, especially if this has been going on for awhile - they may be carbon-covered and not firing efficiently.
