      If it is black and not blue, It is running very rich, Check fuel pressure
      and the coolant temp sensor. As a quick check, does it idle better when the
      dipstick is pulled out. This leans the mixture out and will verify the rich

      hello all, i hope i can get some advise or opinions about my new problems
      with my 1984 bmw 533i. it just started happening a few days ago, it started
      shaking with a rough idle and there is nasty black smoke out of the exhaust.
