Your fuel system is sending extra gas to the engine, which is not completely burning it. No big deal, just don't stomp so hard on the gas pedal !

Black smoke coming out in the muffler


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If there's a black smoke coming out of the muffler then have the o2 sensor replaced. The air fuel ratio has irregularities and by replacing the o2 sensor the problem can be resolved.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

What is causing white smoke coming out of the mufflers when I start the engine?


It's normal for a thin white smoke to come out of the exhaust at initial start up. This is caused from moisture built up in the exhaust burning off. However if there is a continuous flow of thick white smoke it could be a blown head gasket causing coolant to burn.

White smoke coming from the muffler, loud noise...


One potential cause is too much gas. It may be running "rich". Your car may also be burning a little oil. White smoke is water or antifreeze. If you are loosing coolant from the radiator, it's probably a blown head gasket. If not, it is just condensation in the exhaust pipe that is evaporating as the pipes heat up. If the car is running too rich, the unburned gas will cause black smoke and burning oil smoke will be blue.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

When i put in drive it starts to shake like it wants to turn off and it wont run and black smoke comes out the muffler


You may want to check on the idling of the car. See if adjusting it on the idle control valve or cleaning it would help. Normally this would be the case in any gear, Drive or Reverse. If it is only on drive check on the tranny and the gear valve if it needs cleaning. Or it may be as simple as having the oil of the transmission changed.

Engine Trouble


Your getting backfires? hmm interesting. Seems like your engine is getting flooded and either purging it out of the exhaust or burning it all at once or both (backfire). Sounds like a leaky engine valve to me.There again the bluish smoke indicates to me thatyou are leaking oil somewhere- bad rings or head gasket maybe, which could cause a loss of compression which could also cause your problems.That rattling from the left/rear side sounds like a bad muffler try kicking the muffler (not hard though) next time you walk by it.
