Hi,

It wont be the fuel filter.It's getting way too much fuel in the engine.Most probable cause is the float assembly in the carb is too high and allowing too much fuel to enter.The carb float bowl will need to be removed and the float inspected for possibly a crack in it allowing it to fill with gas and make the fule level too high.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Why is my cub cadet xt1 blowing black smoke cleaned air filter made sure oil level is correct.still blows black smoke


Make sure that at full throttle the chock is not being used. Black smoke coming out of the exhaust of gasoline engine is a sign of a rich fuel mixture (too much fuel, not enough air). A brief puff of black smoke may be visible during hard acceleration when the fuel mixture goes momentarily rich, but under normal running conditions and idling the exhaust should be transparent. If black smoke is visible all the time and the inside of the muffler is coated with heavy black carbon deposits, it would tell you the engine has a rich fuel condition.
On engine, a rich fuel condition and black smoke can be caused by a stuck or maladjusted choke, a leaky metal or hollow plastic float inside the carburetor fuel bowl, or a fuel saturated foam plastic float, or an incorrectly adjusted float (set too low). A trestricted fuel filter may also contribute to a rich fuel mixture.

My 2006 vtx 1300 after changing oil, air filter on max throttle position from exhoust pipes goes black smoke. What it could be?


Hi, Martynas your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

You may not have all the things I list. these are things that will make an engine run rich. ECM, 02 sensors, map sensor, mass air flow sensor, vacuum leaks, throttle position sensor, Clogged air filter, Clogged catalitic converter. You have already replaced the injectors and the ECT , so that rules them out. Check for codes. Start with vacuum leaks. Hoses and the intake manifold gaskets. If you need more info let me know.

04 honda innova 125 black smoke and constant misfire


Black smoke means that the fuel mixture is way too rich (too much fuel), and the mis-fire is most likely due to carbon fouling of the spark plugs because of the rich condition of the air fuel mixture. Be sure that the air filter is clean, and that you are not running the engine with the choke on.

Having trouble with my honda 2001 cbr 929.black/gray smoke coming out of exhaust pipe


There are several possible causes; fuel mixture is too rich, air filter is clogged, or worn piston rings and/or valve guide seals. The latter, however, will most likely produce blue smoke - under acceleration means worn rings, blue smoke under deceleration means bad valve guide seals. Also make sure that the crankcase vent is not obstructed as this will tend to force oil up, past the rings and into the combustion process.

Generally, an examination of the spark plugs will give you a good clue as to what the offender is. Black, sooty spark plugs indicates too much fuel (clogged air filter or mixture too rich). Oily spark plugs means worn engine parts, as mentioned above.

JD LX188 rider mower engine runs rough


black exhaust would usually indicate that the engine mixture is too rich. This can be caused by a dirty air filter which may need replaced if it is the paper element type, or may need washed out if the foam type. It may also be that the carb' needs the mixture adjusted and this is done by turning the adjusting screw clockwise a very little at a time until the engine runs smoothly without black smoking. Beware of over tightening the adjustment screw as the end may be damaged or worse, nip off. hope this solves your problem

Puchased a rover quick start 6 months ago. No revs


Black smoke should not be coming from your air filter. If however, the smoke is coming from your exhaust this could be the result of dirt clogging your air filter and starving the engine of air, hence causing the motor to run on a rich fuel/air mix. If this is the case clean or replace the air filter element, and keep it clean. Another reason for black smoke blowing out is dirty oil in the crank case, if the oil is very dark brown to black in color or smells burnt then it needs replacing.
