Customer Question
Hi its a Mazda...

Hi its a Mazda e2000 1999 model , runs on petrol. When you hit the gas a black smoke is coming out of the exhaust. Is that a major problem?

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Start good, drive well. Just saw it on neutral

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mazda2 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Its a car im trying before buying

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

In the last oil change ( every 10,000 k) the oil was a bit black

HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, that is indicative of oil being burned in the exhaust, which means blowby into the combustion chambers. This may by from worn valve seals and guides or from worn piston rings.

You will need to have a cylinder dry and wet compression test done to determine which is at fault.
