Asked by Generals Jul 10, 2013 at 08:48 PM about the 1999 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


black smoke from your tailpipe? that's gasoline- if your engine is burning oil, it would be white- either way your plugs would get fouled- pull one out and look at it- and what does this have to do with your transmission? am I missing something here
