Black smoke is unburned fuel. Multitude of possibilities.
When was the last major tuneup?

is it a v8?

try a tune-up first and change your fuel filter, then be ready to buy a new carb especially if its a quardrajet(spelling :uh: ) they go bad all the time if they sit

yea tune up(plugs wires distributor cap n rotor button) and new tranny fluid/filter/gasket kit-try carb cleaner and run 93 gas in it fer a tank or two also try gas additive and also run the piss out of it fer a min so it blows the old shit out-after a week youll see big improvement and better gas mileage :biggrin:
