I have a 1996 dodge v10 that is trying to load up, it is going through mass amounts of fuel, blowing smoke, and lots of power loss. I have changed the map sensor and replaced the o2 sensors 4 months ago. What else could be the cause?
Do you

The catalytic converter may be plugged. Take it to a good exhaust
shop and they can run a pressure test on it. Or, bang on the
catalytic converter with a good sized hammer and try to loosen up
the plugged area. Have you noticed any honey-comb looking stuff coming out of the exhaust? This is the cat's inards coming apart and getting blown out back.
