Hi there. Black smoke from the exhaust is an indication of excessive fuel consumption. This may be the result of excessive fuel pressure, caused by a faulty fuel pressure regulator, a very dirty engine air filter, a faulty MAF (mass airflow) sensor, incorrectly calculating the incoming air to the engine. I recommend having your vehicle's black smoke coming from the exhaust be diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
