Question about 1998 Volkswagen Golf
I have black smoke billowing out of the exhaust when I floor the eccelarator. The car has been to a VW garage, and after 5 hours trying to diagnose the problem, they THINK it may be a slightly worn cam shaft but can't gaurantee it. Has anyone out there had the same problem?
Black smoke means to much fuel/running rich, I would think emissions problem, not a cam shaft problem, and check all the small/easy/cheap stuff first.check for computer codes.

Sounds like a bad MAP sensor. This will cause the same problems. Possibly an oxygen sensor not switching properly also.
