Black smoke from exhaust of car comes out while you are driving indicates that the car air fuel/ratio is too rich, when a car air/fuel ratio is too rich, more gas is being burned from a cars engine combustion chambers.
The engine is consuming too much gas, the problem relates to fuel injection.The fuel is running too rich or too lean.Get the o2 sensors checked, get the fuel filter checked, get the IAC( idle air control valve) checked.Also get the throttle body checked.The IAC valve located on throttle body.Clean both IAC and throttle body with a crab or throttle cleaner.IT can be bought from local auto part store.The O2 sensors located before and after catalytic converter.Replace both, the pre and pro O2 sensors before and after catalytic converter.Also see if catalytic converter is clogged and worn out, then it has to be replaced.Also check the fuel injectors, if they are cracked and leaking, this results in black smoke. --------------- This are the possibilities, that can cause black smoke and no power to engine.First get the throttle body , IAC valve and O2 sensors cleaned, then see, if the problem still occurs, then go for catalytic converter cleaning and injector checking.If all checked or replaced, but still the same problem, then the spark plugs and coil pack are to be checked.But its rare that spark plugs and coil pack causing black smoke or no power to engine,--------------- This should help.Thanks.Keep updated.Helpmech.

Black smoke from the exhaust indicates oil in the gas. Your engine is to be treated (valve rings to be replaced/valves to be honed to the next repair size)

Black smoke points to unburnt fuel. I would start by replacing the spark plugs and wires if you have not done so in the last couple of years.

I have a 2000 volvo S70 i smell fumes in side car when driving went to get exhaust checked no problem there what can the problem be?

What type of fumes are they exhaust or oil burning.
Exhaust ..Idle engine and put glove on hand put hand over the tail pipe and if engine stops in 20 seconds then the exhaust is good if it keeps running then its the exhaust is your problem..
2 if ex ok then its due to the breather pipe on the engine and it should go back into the inlet manifold to be reburnt but if its not fitted or rubber hose split or broken then thats what you can smell.
So check out under the bonnet and see if you can smell or see any smokey fumes or sucking noise.
Can you see smoke when you start engine.
Let me know ASAP Ron

First off, go to AutoZone and get the code scanned. They'll do it free, and will give you the fault code. Post that up and we can take it from there.

Just to ponder - have you checked the mass airflow sensor? If it's giving erroneous reasons it can cause you to fuel the engine incorrectly.
