I have a 1987 Dodge Ram Van B250 with the 318 motor. As soon as I start the van its starts puffing black smoke I rev the engine the smoking continues. This van has barely 100000 miles on it and all maitainance has been kept up VERY well. Shortly after I bought the van it wouldnt start one day and I could smell gas inside very strong, I eventually figured out that the choke was stuck. Now I am wondering if the choke could be just partially stuck closed? The MPGs are terrible also, could that be related also or is it just a super gas user? I mean I get like 8MPG. Any information that you can provide me with would be outstanding!
have the same problem?
