Don't know,but that's the symptom of an engine running too rich,so it's fuel injection related.Is the air cleaner clogged?

I'll check out the air cleaner and replace it if dirty. I'll also run some injector cleaner through it. Is this type of fuel delivery system tuned by computer or is it a more conventional system ? If it is a computer based system ? Can the fuel to air ratios be diagnosed by the computer at most certified auto repair shops ? Thank You
