Well more than likely its just a cold start issue my 97' dodge will smoke for a lil bit after start up but when it gets warm it doesn't smoke. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

No need to worry I had a truck that would blow white smoke in the morning when the temp. dropped below 45 degrees and nothing ever became of it.

this is a normal condition and is caused by water vapor condensing in the cold engine and exhaust

Question? My 99 puffs one puff of black smoke when I crank up. We live in Tampa where it realy don't get cold but the humitity is high. I have never seen white smoke nor have I ever seen black smoke when I get on it. My g friend has a 04 VW Jetta TDI. That thing stock flies but black smoke bellows from it when she stands in it. Why does her diesel smoke amd my 99 doesn't?

Black smoke is from excess fuel when you see the black smoke it is because the when the engine fires there is still unburnt fuel in the cylinder from cranking a small amount is normal as for hers when you step on the pedal the injectors pump more fuel into the cylinders richening which also causes black smoke but is the smoke has a blue-ish color then you have engine oil burning and that is somehting that needs to be fixed you truck doesnt smoke becasue of emission reasons. im not all that familiar with volkswagans but if the smoke is excessive it could be caused by restricted intake air like a dirty air filter or a leaky injector

black smoke is good. means that the engine isnt running too lean. alot of engines wont go to full fuel until full boost pressure is present. just look at semis when the driver stands on it they smoke alot too. normal condition for a diesel

No way!!!  I really don't like writing ticket's anyway...Especially for speeding or stuff like that Cause I do it too!!!

I only write the people who do stupid stuff that can cause accident's...i.e. running red lights and blowing through stop signs's........We have lot's of neighborhood's where kids are playing...My job is to protect and keep people safe , not to harrass drivers for loud pipes and black smoke!!

I wasn't always a cop and I realize that i can't be a hippocrit...I like to have my fun too  Smile
