Major smoke while at idle and under acceleration
So amongst my other problems this started the yesterday.
Really rough start up. Really rough while warming up and blowing smoke all the time, alot of smoke. I have a video but dont know how to load it on here. Then while driving, under acceleration it blows a lot of black sooty smoke. I mean I can cloud the expressway like James Bond pulling the smoke screen lever. I do have a code P0281- Cylinder 7 contribution something or other. I assume its an injector. There's a lack of power when it comes of idle sometimes, not all the time, then boost picks up and it takes off. Am I right to assume that is all it is. I will order some rev-x tomorrow.
Ford checked my batteries a couple weeks back and said they failed some test of theirs. I still havent bought new ones obviously. (I will in the morning now) They havent shown anything out of the ordinary on my monitor and always seem to have plenty of cranking power but now Im seeing a " what do I know" situation. I am concerned about my FICM if they are in fact bad. Ficm voltages are always between 47.5-48.5. I am not sure on cold start craking though what it gets to. I will check that in the morning. But I have read bad batteries can kill an FICM. My repair tab keeps going up I guess.
If there is anything I am missing or am forgeting to mention to confirm my suspicions please ask me.
