    I have just checked ignition module and flywheel. Sure enough the culprit was rust on both of them. A good sanding and WD-40 cleaning with setting the gap did the trick. Rust had built up on both and the two were rubbing. Thanks for putting me on the trail to the firing. I let the thing run wide open for 15 mins. I could throttle up or down with no hesitation. It will now run without being kept choked. Thanks again. Fred

4.0l 6 cylinder. What are the probable causes of DTC P0171?


no. (but the isc valves loves to stick but will not cause black smoke)
the 4.0L is one of 5 million made, it's well known,
the black smoke don't lie. it's rich and the cat seems burned up too.
as with black smoke the cat will try to catalyze all that and glow red hot. is your cat missing?>
so why not believe the code 171, its real and is catastrophic failure. there are 2 engines here, FED and California.(exhaust)
(2 different exhausts and sensors there.
as they say, fix what is OBVIOUSLY bad, 171
(find why using tools or inspections)
Fuel System Lean (Bank 1)in most cases the exhaust is cracked near B1S1 0xy sensor
this causes it to stick at 0volts, (lies) and the PCM sees that obvious lie then goes rich. (limphome rich)
if the pcm cant measure oxygen, it must now guess at fuel trim.(bad that.)
it goes rich, so you dont melt pistons running lean.
(by design)

bad front oxygen sensor (aka , up stream bank 1)
in calif cars, it can have a split exhaust on the I6 and have 3 sensors. (hope not yours, do look..)
most have 2 sensor, front and the useless behind cat sensor(B1s2)
S2 is useless for running mix, the rear is for smog test the cat.

so it rich, and now misfires. and the spark tips are black.
and it misfires to bad it can even idle, sure. (Drops)
the cause, is too rich.
the 171 means the PCM sees it stuck at 0v forEVER.

there are in fact other causes.
but these 2 are top cause.

on all 3 of my 4.0L engines
the exhaust manifold cracked on the under side.
side facing block. (i use a hose to ear to hear the putt putt puts, (with FULL PPE protection from burns from a dead cold engine.) ask how.
even the SST exh. man. did that.

or the header flange gasket is TOAST. (that too putts when bad.)

Filled up with gas started cutting back and smoke from back of engine


not sure what you are describing really, is it possible you can elaborate? After you filled up this happened? The engine started cutting back? Did you put diesel instead of gas? A common mistake! This will make the vehicle putt putt if it even starts and will have no power what-so-ever! Will just sit there and putt putt. A plugged catalytic converter will get red hot and sometimes hiss if there is any leak you your exhaust and the car will overheat and have a loss of power and the hotter it gets the more the power loss will be until it overheats the head and warps it or blows a head-gasket.
If that is smoke from a fuel leak then this is dangerous of explosion.
If you had a service guy check your oil when you filled up, he left the oil filler cap off and it's spraying all over the exhaust and engine and again dangerous of fire. You must carefully determine what is leaking to cause this smoke, it's either an exhaust leak, an antifreeze (coolant) leak or from the power steering or transmission line or brake line. One thing to find a small leak is to place a piece of cardboard under the engine to see what and where anything is dripping.

Lawn Mower putt putt when filter in place


Your air filter screw may be too long from over tightening air cleaner and crushing the cover. It warpes the carb allowing for gas to leak into carb. Grind or cut off screw alittle or put washer on and don't over tighten. thank you for using fixya.

My truck some times dies on exceleration and ruff ideal than runs fine


I had the same problem with my 93 K2500 it only has 159000 on it. It was my catalytic converter, drop the Y pipe going into your exhaust manifold then drive it. You should feel an immediate difference. You can replace it or cut it open if your state doesn't have emission laws. It cost me around 250 and a couple hours of work.
