My car idles so rough that we need to turn it up to keep it running. Black smoke pours out of the tail pipe. The spark plugs are oil covered and there there is a fuel smell that is very strong. The car eats the gas. We have changed the plugs and it runs a little smooth but then goes right back to running rough.
