The heavy soot in the exhaust pie was there befor I changed the filter. That's why I changed the filter the old one was dirty and I thought it might br choking the intake.
Is this an answer or a question?
Rowe, I think t's more info on another question/ post, seems he started a new one instead of replying to the old one. doh!. So the truck is running on the "rich" side. Did you replace the plugs? How is the fuel system and EGR and vacuum lines? You didn't say if you have a CEL on. Post back to the this thread to make it easier.
