Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.Having a high oil level as well as a fuel smell would indicate the engine is over fueling which would also explain the black smoke. I would start first with checking the fuel pressure to be sure it with in specs. Normal pressure should not exceed 55 PSI. If it dose that that usually means the regulator has failed or is leaking . Lets check this first and get the results. Post back with the results and we can work from there.

do ii need any special tools for this test . where do i start?.
a engine diagram would be nice.so i would know where each item is located.
Expert:  Ron replied 8 months ago.
All you well need to start with would be a fuel pressure gauge to check the pressure. You should have a service port on the injector rail. Which part are you needing a picture of?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
not sure yet will get fuel pressure first.then hit u back.question;does the eng have to be running when I do test?
Expert:  Ron replied 8 months ago.
Yes it best to have it running to get an accurate reading. Post back when you get it done and we can work from there.

Expert:  Ron replied 8 months ago.
