1 CEL and Very wispy black smoke on 12th January 2014, 6:11 pm

Hi guys,

So the car had been sat for a bit (6 weeks or so) after me and my mate changed the clutch fluid and adjusted the pedal. Car was fine then. Took it out a week or so ago and got 2 miles down the road and the CEL came on and I noticed some wispy black smoke under accel, so immediately returned home. Car starts fine, and idles at correct revs, but as soon as the choke is out and the car is idling at normal it starts spitting out what I'd guess is soot, so I am sure it is a fuel related problem, just not sure where to start.

My first port of call is to check the diagnostic, so does the pulsar have an OBD port and if so is it 1 or 2? The car lives at my mums so I can't just pop out and check, so want to go over with all the right gear rather than wasting time.

Geoff

You can bridge over two pins and put it in test mode wich flashes the eml light to give you a code .... or buy a nissan consult cable and plug it into your laptop .... its obd 1 . Wink

Cheers guys.
Nomad, how comprehensive is the test code? Not that comprehensive I'd guess?

Its ok to be fair but depends on how indepth you want to go at the end of the day aslong as you can count the flashes it will give you the fault... 10 flashes is 0 but if you want to view any real time data etc then obviously the laptop method is the way to go .
