    ok the truck is a 1991 s10 2.5 4cyl vin e, 5 speed.

    truck had no power, i took the air cleaner lid off and the 2 month old air cleaner was pitch black from what appears to be exhaust soot. my son complained that he would be in 4th gear with the pedal to the floor and it would only do 40mph, it would pop and miss and such.

    the inside of the air cleaner in between the outside of the filter and the housing is full of the soot as is the breather filter.

    the week old plugs are totally carbon covered as well.

    the check engine lights comes and goes while driving.

    the cap, rotor, wires, plugs, o2 sensor, ignition module, and full exhaust is new within the last month.

    i took the egr valve out to clean it with a toothbrush and tried sucking on the ended to get it to move and it didnt (so either i dont have enough lung power or its bad i dont know).

    gas mileage has been crappy as well.
    if i missed explaining anything please ask
