    Hey All
    I have a 84 Blazer i just bought. I love it, but when I warm it up in the morning it leaves a black soot mark on my
    driveway. Is it running to rich or is this normal. Thanks guys, talk to you soon.

    If it only does it in the morning or on cold start ups, I would check the choke and see if its closing too tight, assuming that its a electric choke, back it up a couple of clicks and see if that clears it up[​IMG]
