I have an 89 Camry with 160k miles. The car is Idling Rough and Black smoke is coming out of the exhaust. In the mornings when you start it up, it'll start then chugg down and die. But when you do get it to start and idle, it idles rough. The car has no power going up or down hill. When you press on the throttle all the way down, the car seems to want to die then picks up speed very slowly. I've replaced the spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor, and air filter. Still no good. I've tried to play with the ignition timing by turing the distributer cap back and forth all the way. Either way I turn it. It still runs the same. There's nothing aftermarket on the car. The only thing I know is that the mass air flow sensor is not the original. It's from and an 88 toyota truck. But the check engine light does not stay on. It only comes on at times. Please let me know of what to check and how? I'm not sure whats going on.
have the same problem?
