flow sensor. It ran good for about 5 miles snd
started missing bad and acting like it was going to
stall at 70 mph ehile i was on my way to work. Also
i noticed its blowing black smoke pretty bad. Amy

Seems as though your passenger side cylinders aren't getting fire (spark) maybe. Do you have a general knowledge of your ignition system to trace it back to the problem?
