HELP! Black smoke!

Hey guys.. I've got a question. When I rev my 5th gen, not even very high (around 4-5k RPM), massive smoke comes out. The car was standing for a few weeks, but has been driven a handful of times since then. I took a video of the car, have a look at the link and let me know you think it might be.. Thanks a lot guys! So far the forum has been a huge help. (happens about 2/3 of the video in, so just skip there).

Welcome to the world of vtec. You're running rich, which is better than running lean.

Not necessarily. Running rich just means your air to fuel ratio is off and the car is either getting too much fuel or not enough air. Lean is the opposite, too much air, not enough fuel

Re: HELP! Black smoke!

From personal experience I would assume a bad O2 Sensor?

Correct if wrong
