The timing may be off a little. I would first look at the fuel system to rule that out. Is the choke all the way in? If so...have you tried a carb kit and checked the float? If the needle is stuck...fuel will keep pouring in. www.nnyparts.com

Why does it blow a lot of black smoke out tail pipes when floored to pass a car?


Yes. Could also be a dirty air filter. Try the cheap and easy first. look for something restricting air flow first. Did a plastic bag get sucked up around the air intake going to the filter? etc. Hope that helps

Why is my craftsman running rough?


Black smoke means it is running rich. Too much fuel or not enough air. I doubt that it is an air issue. Check the float and carb.

Have you checked the choke that it is off after you get the engine started,the black smoke is definitely from the choke, if you take the carb off and check that the needle closes when it should,as one can easily do an adjustment by bending the float/tab,rgds

2004 sprinter Black smoke


assume diesel engine ? so if water was in fuel ? the engine would not run even b4 it got to engine because fuel filter would rstrict diesel due to water on filter element ? can i just say that from your symptoms ? black smoke/engine runs but poor ? the fact it is black smoke? is most due to lack of air flow to manifold remove air filter element and see if smoke clears? if element of filter has got wet ie floods? it will not allow air through? make sure there is no other restriction/s on filter inlet and outlet pipe to manifold espcially check now for any weakness on pipe to engine from filter ie when you rev up look to see if hose is sucking together due to vacuum created by revs of engine? if injectors were defect ? the smoke would be blue due to over fuel injection ie injectors not atomizing correctly ? i would suspect problem is lack of air? out of curiosity?? how did water enter fuel tank ?? if any more info you can provide it may give better idea of problem ?
