Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6

Black smoke from exhaust

I have a 99 xjr which intermittently produces black smoke from one side of the exhaust, at the same time fuel consumption doubles. I'm not losing oil or water. After a while the problem rights itself only to reappear on another day. It always happens on start up and continues for up to 3 days/200 miles

Why is my atego 1823 having a hard start in the morning and when it starts it produces a black smoke


Black smoke, real black, is unburnt fuel in the exhaust. If it clears up in a very short time, it may be only due to the extended cranking you have to go through to get it started. If fuel consumption is not awful, it is possible that the hard starting is not a fuel problem. If this is fuel injection, too much gas could be leaking injectors, but as above, if it clears up right away, the smoke was from extended cranking forcing all that gas into the cylinders. You probably should check fuel pressure, always do that for hard starting.

Check your ignition system, use a calibrated spark tester. Need new spark plugs and/or plug wires?

Black smoke and bad fuel consumption what is the problem? Oh it an 07is volvo s40 20d


Hi there:Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be burned completely. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich." Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the least cause for alarm. Excess fuel will usually effect engine performance, reduce fuel economy, and produce a fuel odor.
How did the fuel get into the cylinder in the first place? Some of the causes of excess fuel are a carburetor that is out of adjustment, a faulty fuel pump, a leaky fuel injector, or a faulty engine computer or computer sensor. If black smoke is present, check the engine oil as in the white smoke example to make sure excess fuel has not contaminated it. Do not start the engine if a heavy, raw fuel smell can be detected in the engine oil. Call your mechanic and advise him of what you have found.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa.

2001 E220 CDI exhaust tail pipe black smoke on acceleration


Black smoke is almost always an indication that the air/ fuel mix (ratio), is too rich. I would try to find out if the just cleaned the injectors or were they replaced. Cleaning injectors and sometimes leave irregularly shaped orifices. Besure the air filter is clean. This can effect mix also.
Good Luck and hope this helps.
