My camry v6 emits black smoke and jerks in traffic, what is the cause and whats the solution?

You have three things to check Firstly,check all the vacuum lines going from the motor to the firewall, these cause the motor to vibrate violently at idle position because some times they become loose. Secondly,check the throttle body,there is a buy pass valve that gets so gummed that it will stick in the open position and there will be no power (no turbo boost) some times you can just lightly tap it and it will close(you will see it close).
Thirdly and lastly,check the tubing going to the inter cooler, it's very low to the ground and very easy to knock loose when you run over some thing.

My camry 2001 v6 engine emits black smoke and **** in traffic

Black smoke indicates running "rich" (using excessive fuel) sounds like an injector is sticking open. I would first run a strong fuel system cleaner through it. (Maybe even have a professional fuel system cleaning) Ques? When was last tune up? A dirty air filter would contribute, but not make alot of black smoke.

When I start my 2003 Camry, it blows black smoke, it clears pretty fast, but it seems like a problem

If it is puffing out dark/black smoke when you first start the vehicle then it would be associated with carbon build up. It will be caused by either oil in the combustion chamber or a fuel related issue. To tell you which one is the cause I will need more information about the problem, may be any helpful repair/maintenance history. If its related to the fuel it could be a poor spark, bad fuel, timing, bad air filter, ans so on. If its oil, it could be a piston ring, valve seal, or poor oil condition.

Cause and solution

sounds like one of the oil breather pipes is bloked wich will cause oil to feed to the cylinder wich will cause smoke and uneavan running wich will cause the car to **** when standing. take off all breathing pipes main ones come from the rocker covers clean them and put them back. the main engine breather will come out of the engine block do the same.
