Have LT 1536 . Smoke started coming out the exhaust but engine sounds healthy

Depends on the colour of the smoke.
Unlikely an engine will sound healthy emitting black smoke - excess fuel.

An engine could sound healthy emitting white smoke (steam from coolant) but not from white smoke (excess unburned diesel).

Most engines emitting blue or blue-grey smoke from burning engine oil can sound very healthy.

How I do my Toyota sienna 200 emit black smoke,slow speed often.

loss of engine power. its called, and may stall, it will soon,.
the black smoke is very very rich fuel.
and the dash board, CEL glowing running, telling you to Scan the PCM.
so do so. ok seems you did?
next time post all DTCs, never tell me what they mean, i look them up
in real books, real Sienna 2000 books, not web rumor bs.
which engine?
my guess is
3.0 L 1MZ-FE V6 (1998-2000) This one.
3.0 L 1MZ-FE V6 (01-03, VVT-i)
The V6 DTCS, we need all DTCs thrown. by number
like P0300 or the like.
is 200 = 2000 year? 1998 to present they are made.

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.

Fuel efficency

check for a split in the air intake tube. the v6 has a mass air flow sensor. if air is entering the engine without being counted by the mass air flow sensor it will cause a rich condition.
