I have a Nissan Patrol '90 GQ 4.2 petrol, and its spluttering and barely idling & spewing out black smoke from exhaust. Its had a new carby, dizzy, leads, hoses, but apparently timing is sitting around 4. Could this be the cause? If anyone has any ideas for what could be wrong, would be greatly appreciated!! 馃檪 cheers Jojo

Has the distributor been replaced with a new one, or just had some work done to it??

You say timing is 4 "apparently". Who determined this, was it a workshop??

As part of fuel system maintenance has the fuel filter and aircleaner been replaced???

Is the automatic choke disengaging??

Are you certain the wires from dizzy to plugs are in correct order?
