So i got my 3.0L V6 pathfinder... And the exhaust has recently started spewing some stinky black shit out when i start it up, and it continues until its well warmed up.

It kinda looks like oily water but doesnt leave rainbows on the driveway...

Heres some pics...

Other than that it seems to run fine just did new plugs and an oil change and new air filter...

I have no idea whats causing this.. Water in the cat/muffler??

Anybody know cause I hate not knowing the problem or if it is even a problem...

[cheers]

It's called a process of combustion, H2O is one of the byproducts. And it's running rich which is the black you see. :D

Ahh. Well thats good to know was probably the octane boost then

I'll just drive it empty and see if its still rich later...

I thought I'd gone and fucked something up lol

Ya this stuff seems really extensive for just running rich... Or im just worrying to much... Been doin it since tuesday and i just started it now and i could probly fill a fewbig shot glasses with this shit... If its rich its reaaally rich...


Also aaron my jeep starves and dies on higher altitudes if i dont add octane boost lol
