The most common cause is dirty or worn injectors injectors. Try a cleaning additive but the normally advised course of action is to replace the injectors or at least have them cleaned and checked.

My 2006 vtx 1300 after changing oil, air filter on max throttle position from exhoust pipes goes black smoke. What it could be?


Hi, Martynas your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

4.0l 6 cylinder. What are the probable causes of DTC P0171?


no. (but the isc valves loves to stick but will not cause black smoke)
the 4.0L is one of 5 million made, it's well known,
the black smoke don't lie. it's rich and the cat seems burned up too.
as with black smoke the cat will try to catalyze all that and glow red hot. is your cat missing?>
so why not believe the code 171, its real and is catastrophic failure. there are 2 engines here, FED and California.(exhaust)
(2 different exhausts and sensors there.
as they say, fix what is OBVIOUSLY bad, 171
(find why using tools or inspections)
Fuel System Lean (Bank 1)in most cases the exhaust is cracked near B1S1 0xy sensor
this causes it to stick at 0volts, (lies) and the PCM sees that obvious lie then goes rich. (limphome rich)
if the pcm cant measure oxygen, it must now guess at fuel trim.(bad that.)
it goes rich, so you dont melt pistons running lean.
(by design)

bad front oxygen sensor (aka , up stream bank 1)
in calif cars, it can have a split exhaust on the I6 and have 3 sensors. (hope not yours, do look..)
most have 2 sensor, front and the useless behind cat sensor(B1s2)
S2 is useless for running mix, the rear is for smog test the cat.

so it rich, and now misfires. and the spark tips are black.
and it misfires to bad it can even idle, sure. (Drops)
the cause, is too rich.
the 171 means the PCM sees it stuck at 0v forEVER.

there are in fact other causes.
but these 2 are top cause.

on all 3 of my 4.0L engines
the exhaust manifold cracked on the under side.
side facing block. (i use a hose to ear to hear the putt putt puts, (with FULL PPE protection from burns from a dead cold engine.) ask how.
even the SST exh. man. did that.

or the header flange gasket is TOAST. (that too putts when bad.)

I'm looking to purchase a used car. I've been doing online research and saw this webpage http://www.usedcarsmells.com . They talk about exhaust color and smells. Is it true that you could tell a lot about...


Yes this is correct, you can get important information from the colour of smoke from the exhaust:

Blue/Gray Smoke: Blue/gray exhaust smoke is an indication of oil burning in the combustion chamber. These are possible symptoms and causes:
Valve Seals: Leaking valve seals will cause blue/gray smoke at startup because oil leaks past the seals into the cylinder after the engine shuts down.
Valve Guides: Excessive clearance between the valve stem and the valve guide allows oil to leak past the gap into the cylinder.
Piston Rings: Worn or damaged piston rings will cause blow-by resulting in blue/gray smoke.
Worn Cylinder Walls: Worn cylinder walls cause blow-by resulting in blue/gray smoke.
PCV System: A stuck closed PCV valve will cause excessive crankcase pressure resulting in blue/gray smoke.
Black Smoke: Black exhaust smoke is an indication of a rich fuel condition. These are possible causes:
Fuel Injectors: A leaking or dripping fuel injector will cause a rich fuel condition.
Fuel Pressure Regulator: A stuck closed fuel pressure regulator will cause a rich fuel condition.
Fuel Return: A restricted fuel return line will cause a rich fuel condition.
White/Gray Smoke: White exhaust smoke is an indication that coolant is burning in the combustion chamber. These are possible causes:
Cylinder Head: A crack in the cylinder head (around the coolant jacket) will cause coolant to enter the combustion chamber.
Engine Block: A crack in the deck of an engine block near the coolant jacket will cause coolant to enter the combustion chamber.
Head Gasket: A damaged or blown head gasket will cause coolant to enter the combustion chamber resulting in white/gray smoke coming from the tailpipe.
