Black Smoke When Starting

Anyone else have the problem when you start your GC that black smoke comes out of the exaust. I have a 2k11 with the V8 and I have about 6500mi on it.

no, you seem to have something wrong.

The Orvis has been neglected and needs help. Back on here after a long time. Time to research some help haha

No black smoke here either with my Overland V8. Black smoke is usually the sign of burning oil or rings. Get it checked out. Good luck.

I think it's over fueling for some reason. Have you looked at your air filter lately?

Mine: 07 GC Limited Hemi stock for now.

Hers: 14 Dodge Durango Citadel Hemi
