Engine Mechanical problem
1987 Chevy Suburban V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 112000 miles
a couple days ago I went to go visit my mom and I was getting off the highway after a 32 mile drive and I stopped to go right as traffic passed by my truck was idling really high. And I didn't think much of it as this wasn't the first time its idled high, but I stepped on the gas to go and it died. After 5 minutes I got it started and got going. Well about a minute or 2 later I reach another turn and I stopped at this stop light and my truck sounded alright still idling high though and then once again I went to go step on the gas and it died. After a couple of seconds I got it started again, with realizing that this wasn't a fluke a decided to park. I got it onto a side road where I was going to turn left into a Lowe's and it died again so I couldn't get it started again that night and someone helped me get it into the lot. Well the next day I looked at my spark plug cables and saw that one was burnt through so I replaced it. Then started right up. Thinking that my issue was resolved I drove it to my moms house.I then decided to take it to the gas station to fill her up but it died again at the top of the neighborhood I tried and tried to start it but got nothing but a really loud low pitch engine like it was firing and starting but didn't want to stay that way after I stopped turning the key. During this I looked out and saw that black smoke was coming out of the exhaust. I waited an hour and then tried again and I got it started and parked at my mothers.I just can't figure out why it would do that and the only conclusions I came up with was fuel pump or fuel injectors.
