TOYOTA 4RUNNER SMOKE PROBLEM

1997 Toyota 4Runner • 89,000 miles

When the ignition key is turned on, the engine does not fire immediately and when it actually starts, the vehicle vibrates with thick smoke coming out. Once the engine is running, the vehicle does not vibrate anymore; only at startup.

What kind of smoke coming out-is it black?

Yes, thick black smoke.

Running too rich-could be a leaky injector or fuel pressure regulator-also check the coolant temperature and oxygen sensors-
