Tail pipe dark smoke
When I hit the gas pedal a cloud of dark smoke comes out of the tail pipe. Is this normal or is something wrong? If so what might be causing this problem>
your air/ fuel mixture is too fat, meaning there is more gas than air. try leaning out the carbs a liitle bit by gradually going down a size
What color is the smoke. Does it look a little blueish or is it black
Crap just realized you're talking about a diesel, likely just particulate exhaust. I don't think they have a particle filter on beetles so that would be my guess...
I need help this is not the answer to question my own to how to post a question I bought a 02 bug from a guy who fear and grey didn't smoke nothing now that I'm home and it's running on a regular I got nothing but white smoke coming out of my tailpipe what running and I like to know what that is
