Hiya ive recently bought my second mk3 mondeo this time a 2litre duratec engine its been stood a few days as i didnt have cash to tax straight away (but kept startin it once a day) when i rev the engine i get a lot of black smoke but none on tickover ive only ever known this from diesel engines not petrol does anyone know whether this is normal? i could be being daft it may need a gd service but just thought id get some advice, thanks

black smoke usually is a sign of running rich. it most likely just wants a good service and an enthusiastic drive afterwards to clear everything through.
