If a Rover 214i kept cutting out so you checked the spark plugs and found oil and cleaned it and it was fine but now black smoke comes from the exhaust and the engine is making a banging sound what is wrong?

sounds like you could have worn rings, recheck and see if your smoke is black or blue-grey. if blue-grey(burning oil) I would check the compression in the cylinders you found oil(white crust on the plug) if you have wet oil on the plugs it is almost always external, I would change the valve cover gaskets. if the noise is a nocking type sound it is time to replace you short block. good luck!!!!

For cutting exhaust pipes, the proper tool is definitely better than a sawzall.

To route harmful gases to the rear of the car after the catalytic converter has cleaned up the exhaust as much as possible. Also the muffler is used to quite the exhaust.
