Hey,
not to long ago i was cruzing with a friend(he was following me) and i decided i'd show him how well i can lay some rubber. so i gunned it and when i pull over to find out what exactly he wants to do he says "Dude you just let out a large plume of black smoke" i said BS and we traded vehicles and what do ya know my Elky('87 with 305 4-br) does make a smokescreen :( , (does wonders when running from cops), j/k. but im thinking its my carb and that im getting a rich fuel mixture and he says its oil. i tell him burned oil out of the exhaust is blue he says its black. what you guys think? what should be done to correct the problem? thanks for any help :D

Black smoke usually means rich carb, blue smoke usually means oil blow by (rings), white smoke usually means coolant (head gasket).
