SOURCE: black smoke, using alot of petrol, no loss of power, funny smell

If it just smokes when it idles, i'd be inclined to suggest it's the oil seals on the turbo... Leave it 10 minutes, see if the smoke starts, give the accelerator lots of gas to see if the smoke stops... If it does, then it's the turbo oil seals....

Hi should my 2014 450 sxf blow a black ish kind of smoke when revved an on down rev a bluey black smoke think its called blow by? And what should I do to fix it? Could it just be a spark plug? Thanks

is yours the 2 stroke model or 4 stroke model ? 2 stroke model they do burn oil so it would be blue/black smoke, 4 stroke should be gray/blue color, if 4 stroke model it could be the timing is out a bit or the spark plug is not set right. or weak dispak. it can also be the fuel to air mix is out of alignment.

Sometimes it seems that it dont get petrol but their are enought in tank it misses and when i rev it shes better for some distance then do it again

When you say it seems like it doesn't get petrol are you meaning that it starves under hard load / acceleration? If so, the fuel filter is the first place I'd look.

My car is blowing smoke and shuddering ef falcon

What color is the smoke ? is it bluish or is it white ?
The blue colored smoke would smell more like burning oil, which would indicate a broken piston ring, ect. the white smoke if it smells of coolant(anti-freeze) would lean toward a head gasket problem.

Oil usage Huyndai Santa Fe 2002 (4 cylinder)

If its a petrol motor then they will blow a little white smoke/steam on startup until the exhaust heats up. The engines computer knows that its cold so richens the petrol/air mixture to warm it up faster . You should let it warm a little before driving off or if you can't then don't rev it hard til it starts to warm up. All the parts inside the engine need to get to optimal running temp to wear properly. Most engines wear more on startup then when they have been running for a long time. In regards to smoke blue is bad (oil) black is bad ( to much fuel) and white is usually on startup.
