    Hello everyone, I recently purchased a 2003 Ford ZX2 with a 5 speed manual transmission, upon getting it, the car ran just fine. Yesterday, while out driving the car suddenly stalled, and for the past day I have been trying to fix it but the car bucks when I drive it, and will sometimes die. When starting it, it sometimes either blows black smoke from the muffler at high revs, revs on its own and then goes to 1k RPM and jumps up and down, or dies and misfires.
    I think it may be an issue with the fuel, which is what we're narrowing it down to, but other than that I am not sure.
