Put a can of sea foam in the tank and drove it 25 miles Next morning it would belch and fart and try to start, once in a while it would fire up and run really rough, black smoke from the exhaust. Changed the fuel filter no improvement Plugs, wires cap rotor, no improvement. Dropped the tank, cleaned it and put new gas, no improvement. Installed new fuel pump and pickup strainer, no improvement. I can see fuel firing out of the injector
