Could be a bad 02 sensor or bad tps (throttle posistion sensor) id suggest auto -zone ask them to read the cars codes even if the engine light is not on there are always codes they will do this for free. it will give you a better idea as to whats going on.

Unfortunately you have to bring the vehicle to the Dealer. Why? German Auto makers keep their codes to themselves. They can scann the vehicle for codes and do the repair accordingly. Any repair shop will do the repair and pay threw the nose and so will you for the meaning of that code. Your burning rich. Thats what the black smoke is for But why is the question?
My experience with the *E* class with this situation has been defective air flow sensor and fuel pressure regulator once it was the ECU. Good luck

My brand new 2014 camaro,has had black exhaust tips since I bought it.I feel this is causing poor mpg,and will cause damage to the cat. and premature wear on the rings,and poor mpg.


It's running too rich and all this will do is cause the black exhaust. Get it leaned out. May be only because of a faulty temperature sensor causing it to stay in cold start mode, like keeping the choke on in the early vehicles. Check that sensor.

Black smoke when reved sharply while in stationary position , and when i try to keep a steady speed , a slight vibration from engine every 2to4 secs then a puff of black smoke . this is in a voltswagon...


Diesel?? Black some is unburned fuel, due to poor combustion. Get a compression test, but you may also have a leaky injector.
Gas engine?? Due to too much fuel, too rich. Make sure air filter is clean, Clean up your intake and IAC system. Scan it if it continues.
