    something is very wrong with the truck...

    After i pull the bung back out and free-air calibrate it, put the bung back in..

    started the truck up, the aem now reads 10.4 at idling.. wtf? i have black **** blowing out out my tailpipe at idling...with alot of water blowing out with it to... my dad saw it and said come here look at ur tailpipe.. what is causing this.. also my idle drops down then raise back up to normal when switching from drive to park.. what is causing all this now??? im not driving the truck till i get it straightened... plugs?, cops?,

    its 45 degrees out and i have my timing backed -9 at 3.5-redline .. is that causing this?

    That looks like condesation coming from the pipes. No big deal. A fouled plug will cause un-burnt gas. The un-burnt gas will change to a taint smell after it goes through a heated cat.
    To see if you are pushing a head gasket all you have to do is open the coolant tank and rev the motor. See if you get air bubbles. This is probably not the case, when I pushed a gasket is was puffing pretty good. White smoke.
    by a member over at nloc .. hes right.. i think i fouled a plug.

    the tip was brownish/grey , ring was wet black, and insulator was brown burnt looking.

    whens the last time you changed your 02 sensors??? I had the same prob with running 10.0 and richer at idle I also would get a lean code for bank 1... My heat shield for my cats pinched a wire to my front 2 o2 sensors changed them now 14.7-15.2 at idle just intime for smog!!

    the reason I was running rich was cause the comp. was trying to compensate for the o2 sensor saying it was lean.

    My truck spits out water when I back it out of the garage and let it warm up in the morning.

    it depends on how rich you are running.. if running real rich all the time it says to change them around 10,000... other than that I would figure when the go bad or at 50-100,000 miles...

    Dont know how much but backing out timing will make it run richer, try putting the timing back in and see if it goes back to normal.
