My 2006 vtx 1300 after changing oil, air filter on max throttle position from exhoust pipes goes black smoke. What it could be?


Hi, Martynas your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

Hello, my 2004 Honda VTX 1800 after heats up on low speed the engine shuts down. What it could be?


Hi, Martynas and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP, or CMP sensor.
5. Carburetor jetted too lean.
6. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
7. Water coolant old or low change every two years.
8. Water pump failure.
9. Radiator clogged, cap loose or malfunctioning.
10. Radiator fans not coming on.
11. Clutch slipping, brakes dragging, heavy load, towing a trailer etc.
12. Idling too long without moving.
13. For constant hot weather temperatures, mountain, or desert riding conditions consider adding an oil cooler and or cylinder head cooler.

2003 Saturn vue v6- excessive water, moisture dripping out of tailpipe- same vehicle that's making the roaring noise


Water does drip out of the tailpipe as a matter of course. That's perfectly normal.

If you have a 'roaring' noise from the silencer/muffler area it's probably because there's a hole in it due to age/corrosion and the exhaust gases are leaking straight to atmosphere without being silenced by the muffler.

Water WILL drip from a holed silencer or pipe. This is normal. The water isn't your problem - you have a hole or split in the muffler or pipe

I have a 1995 honda accord 209,000 miles,my car leaks antifreeze out of the muffler whenever i refill it,but i dont see any white smoke or have had any problems with it overheating..i recently changed the...


There is NO way water can get inside the muffler / exhaust pipe without evaporating, and causing a white smoke at the tailpipe. Additionally, in order to get inside, you would get major power and idling problems. I would look at the cooling circuits near the firewall ( cooling hoses to the internal heater, for example) because one of them must be dripping water externally onto the exhaust pipe or muffler. If the car never overheats, there is a possibility that you are simply overfilling the cooling water bottle. The full mark for accord bottles, is waaay down, it looks as if the bottle was empty. As soon as the engine heats up, it will send excess water overboard.
