Icon5 5th gen lude black smoke

Well I was in first when I launched up to 7k rpm and when I shifted into second a shot out black smoke. I know black smoke happens when running lean but I changed my air filter and spark plugs a week ago. Any idea I read somewhere it's probably carbon burning

Re: 5th gen lude black smoke

it will always do that when you hit v-tec....if it does it constantly
then you need to take other steps.

Re: 5th gen lude black smoke

Yeah I've heard VTEC makes a puff of black smoke come out. maybe have someone drive behind you and tell you when it comes out and how much.

Black smoke happens when you run rich (burning fuel). All hondas run a little rich from the factory or on basemap tunes. It is also normal to see some black smoke at a WOT condition.

I smoke black in vtec. also fuel injector cleaner will do that.

Re: 5th gen lude black smoke

I had the issue with my car running so rich that I never hit VTEC with my car for a month and my whole rear bumper was covered in black soot. My white Prelude was a lot harder to keep clean...

Re: 5th gen lude black smoke

When I had a bad primary sensor my car ran super rich it smelled like ass the entire time the car was on but I never had a problem with oil on my bumper it was all over my exhaust though.
