Probably not. Black smoke is more of a sign of too much fuel or not enough air. Check the air filter first; see if there is an air obstruction. If that's not it, next check the injectors to see if there are any that are sticking open. Don't let this problem go any longer. It can cause fuel in the crankcase.
There are 2 different types of smoke,white or black/purple-ish. White smoke indicates a problem with the water. Black/purple-ish indicates an oil problem. In your case with white smoke check the water and on rare occasions changing the air filter helps too.

If you have black smoke coming out it would be because you have bad timings, i have a buddy who had that happen to his jeep and we replaced the spark plugs and air filter and fixed the timing and it solved the problem, but wen you blow black smoke its because of bad timing it happens with diesels to.

Black is an adjective that describes the smoke. Smoke is a common noun.
Most common problem is a dirty/clogged fuel filter restricting a good flow of fuel to the engine. Otherwise, the carburetor needs adjustment. Or, if the engine is blowing black smoke before it dies, check the spark plug and the air filter, or a too rich mixture from the carburetor.
If the smoke is white, then there is coolant getting into the cylinder. Blue smoke is from burning oil, and black smoke is from an improper fuel air mix (stopped up air filter or choke stuck stuck.)
The engine is burning rich. Clean or replace the spark plug and air filter. If you still get black smoke, close (rotate clockwise) the carburetor needle valve 1/8 turn for a leaner mixture.
