Couple of questions...

Hey guys, just a couple questions about some stuff thats been goin on with the ol' lude....

First of all whenever my car is cold or parked outside for awhile my ebrake light doesn't turn off when I take the brake off. It will stay on there for actually quite awhile sometimes. And as time went on it would sometimes come on whenever i would break hard whether i was doing some "fun" driving or just a dumbass suicidal dog. . . But lately it has been coming on even when i break just to a stop sign or something?

Also the amount of black **** coming out of my muffler has gotten kinda ridiculous, i thought it was pretty normal at first but everytime i wash my car I have to rub extra hard to get the black off my lip kit, and also there is a huge black stain on my garage door from where a few times i must of started my car before opening the door....

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Re: Couple of questions...

as far as the brake light goes, there has been threads about that, do a search for a detailed response. in a nutshell, remember pressure, temperature, and volume are all related as far as liquids and gasses are concearned. if you can figure that out, A+ for you. as for the exhaust question, it happens. i havent seen one lude that doesnt do that. although i did notice mine lessened when i put on the new full exhaust system. i was thinkin of gettin one of those 3M clear covers (like the bras on the new lexus sc430) and just puttin some of that where it gets real bad. idk.

Check/ add brake fluid

Also the amount of black **** coming out of my muffler has gotten kinda ridiculous, i thought it was pretty normal at first but everytime i wash my car I have to rub extra hard to get the black off my lip kit, and also there is a huge black stain on my garage door from where a few times i must of started my car before opening the door....

I'm starting to see this in mine as well, one of a couple things that it could be valve guide seals or in my case I am having CAT issues rattling and shooting pieces out the exhaust pipe, also could be blow by the rings.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
I am assuming you are smoking at idle? Sounds like rings. I only seem to be smoking up on RPMs. Good Luck

If you have a shot O2 sensor, that would explain the excesive carbon coming out of the exhaust.
