Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 141000 miles
I have owned f150 for a week. When I was looking things over I noticed no converters. They have been added and the check engine light has been cleared with no codes to this point( about 100 miles). The engine seems to run much better except for the faint black smoke at idle. The water that is coming out the exhaust(it is also new), has what looks like soot in it. I wonder if an engine anilyzer will tell if it is running to rich(black smoke). Or is that a waste of time. 4.6l v8, aode trans. Oil is royal purple 5-30. Air filter new k&n. I have code reader, and most tools for major repairs including 9000lb lift.
have the same problem?
