There's black smoke coming from the exhaust

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.
