    Was informed today that when I pulled out of the parking lot on Friday, a large amount of black smoke was coming from my tail pipe! Hmmm... Wondering now if perhaps I shouldn't have towed my jetta 440mi with only 2000km on the motor... :D

    at 6800km now... the guys are going to have a look tomorrow hopefully - however it may have to wait until I get back from vacation in 2 weeks.


    Just curious if anyone else has had this happen?!

    I wonder how much really came out? I have had a little come out before with most cars I have ever had at least once. Mostly german cars, but one vette- all 2001 year models or newer. I would dump it, or just pull out and a friend would call my cell and be like "dude, your car is smoking" but it would go away just then- just one ploom of smoke. Good luck! Let us know what they say- but I think youre fine!

    I think that you are fine also, Our trucks run pig rich in the first place & I am guessing that you where getting on it before it was really warmed up. Sounds normall to me.
