    Black smoke = fuel. When going WOT its normal for a puff of black smoke to come from the exhaust. If its more than a puff....it "could" be an issue.

    im not sure what a "puff" is classified as..i should have been more specific....its enough for somebody behind me to notice it numerous times.....and there is enough black stuff on my fender to write my name in....

    It can easilly be seen from behind. If you have alot of soot build up on your fender, you may wantto consider replacing your A/F sensor, or you drive with your foot in it alot...
