No. The filter will need to be replaced.

Faulty fuel pressure regulator, or injector. Make sure your air cleaner filter is not plugged.


Black smoke can be caused when there is an improper air to fuel ratio . This can be anything from a plugged air cleaner,injector,turbo....


I would start with changing the spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter. I would also try a couple of bottles of fuel injector cleaner, and dry gas.


plugged up fuel injector or bad injector itself.


dont even try to unclogg these. just replace them. all three will cost less than 40 bucks


Plugged fuel filter? Plugged air filter? Plugged catalytic converter? I would think it would be the throttle body.


Plugged air filter? Plugged fuel filter? Plugged catalytic converter? Weak fuel pump?



Plugged fuel filter. Plugged PVC valve. Plugged air cleaner. Any or all of the above. I would suggest looking for a cracked vacuum hose, which is a common cause of a stall at idle..


Plugged air filter? Plugged fuel filter? Timing chain sloppy? Weak fuel pump?


Plugged fuel filter Plugged air filter Restricted exhaust (bad Cat)


A plugged air filter, a plugged fuel filter, incorrect fuel pressure, a plugged catalytic converter/restricted exhaust or it may be just in need of a good tune up.


A dirty air filter will cause a lost of power, also a clogged fuel filter will - Yes there are timing marks - but they are on the injector pump & usally don't change unless the hold down is lose. A good injector cleaner is a good idea to use when you fill-up.


There are many possibilities. You could have clogged injectors, or even an intermittently bad fuel pump. try running injector cleaner through your car. Fill the gas tank to the top and put one bottle of injector cleaner in. Next time you fill up see if it solves the problem. If not, have the injectors cleaned, or the fuel pump and or filter looked at.




It could very well be a carbon build up on the valves. I would try some engine cleaner and injector cleaner first though.


A plugged fuel filter or a dirty air cleaner filter can cause any automobile to use more fuel. Worn out spark plugs and plug wires can also cause the vehicle to use more fuel.


Could be a plugged fuel filter or a plugged catalytic converter.


Too much dirt, Clean the filter, change the vacumn cleaner bag.


If the cabin filter were to be totally plugged, the amount of airflow with the blower on would be noticeably reduced. But some air would still be moving.See "Related Questions" below for more


It is possible that the solvent in the product loosened some type of debris in the fuel rail and it is now blocking an injector. For any larger debris in the tank - - the fuel filter would have caught it. Speaking of the fuel filter - - are you sure that it is not clogged and restricting the flow of gas itself? When was the last time you had it replaced?



Plugged air or fuel filter Plugged catalytic converter Loose timing chain


A plugged cabin air filter could cause poor air circulation coming out of the ac vents but you would still hear the blower motor running.
