Ford e 350 runs rough blows black smoke until you restart it

the truck is either an e350 0r f250 right? now which?
Gas powered rigs ? call the dealer to inquire about outstanding recalls. inspect your fuel pressure regulator for the correct number
F4TZ or newer should be seen. check the oil dipstick for a fuel smell. if the spark plugs show excessive fuel or carbon. change the oil first, and the filter. then use an update regulator, and tune up.
diesel rigs? theres a possibility of fuel injector pump and or injector problems. first determine the glow plug system is right. see a diesel tech about what diesel fuel system yours is equipped with, do the required maintenance, and with good parts does it smoke cold only, warm only or both. then you can begin to get answers. several systems were used and engine displacement must be known to look it up. a faulty glow plug controller or inoperative glow plugs can contribute to cold smoke, a faulty injector pump or leaky injectors can cause warm smoke. some diesels have the newer system and there are a series of updates you must have. parts are very expensive so do your homework first. build date, engine size, injector type, outstanding recalls, tsb's tech service messages. these can all be found at the ford dealer. they will be happy to answer your questions.

Gas smell in car

I had a Buick Rendezvous that did this. Turned out if was the neck of the gas tank breaking away from car. It was a factory recall, but not before I paid to have it done. Look for problems on your car online and see if any mention this same problem. There may be a problem of which you are not aware.

Smell and see gas 2001 expedition

Do not start or use Vehicle. If in Garage, do not use the garage door opener. Manually open the door to Garage. Call tow truck with a flatbed. Have vehicle towed to open location.

There were some vehicles with Recalled gas tank straps. But anything could be wrong. The fix may be reasonable.

Call a Dealer with your Vin# to see if yours is an affected Recall.

2005 impala smells like fuel at start up and while driving, gas tank not leaking. smell fumes worist @ morning starts even when heater off and vents shut

its your fuel pressure regulator. pain in the rear to change. its the small brass looking thing next to the throttle with a vacuum line going to it . the part cost me 50$ and i paid a guy $ 75 to put it in. worth every penny. looks easy to change yourself, but not as easy as it looks.

99 lesabre getting hard to start even though it turns over fine. Problem seems to be worse after sitting over night. Smell gas after coming home from driving.

Check out the fuel filter, also look for a fuel leak in the manaflod area. When you go to start it, turn the key on for 10 seconds before you try to start the engine and then turn it over and see if it doesn't start easier. If the fuel pump is getting weak it gives it a chance to build up pressure.

check the fuel line hose near the fuel regulator for wear as they tend to leak or corrode causing a gas smell inside the car. My 2000 Kia Sportage just had the same problem with the gas smell inside the car.

Marshall control valve . gas regulator valve

Replace the regulator as this is typically an issue where the diaphragm has separated from between the body and bonnet. This is not repairable. There is no recall for this as was in the case of the 450 regulator as it is a manufacturing variance that happens with all products. It passed initial QC, but in time the diaphragm moved.
