you may have a blown head gasket. if you keep driving on a car with A BLOWN HEAD GASKET it may permanently damage your engine (especially if you have aluminum heads-they'll worp). if the heads are shot, it's all over. you need to take it to a shop and have it looked at. if that is the problem and they can replace the gaskets without damage to the heads, it won't be cheap. it's a tough job.

When any vehicle has black smoke coming from the tail pipe it normally means it is not burning gas properly. and it could be burning oil check your oil if it is black you are burning oil. and you probably have an oil leak Black smoke means that you're getting too much fuel to the cylinders. You may have a bad injector. If you're burning oil, then the smoke would be white (indicating worn rings or valve guides).

From my experience, your vehicle is probbably burning oil in the combustion chamber, some seals might be broken or worn out in your engine block. I recomend taking it to an auto shop to have some gaskes or seals replaced. Hope this helped!
