Black smoke usually means that the engine is getting too much fuel or not enough oxygen. Check the air filter first. If it's clean, look for a stuck injector. Other possibilites include oxygen sensor, map sensor and throttle position sensor.

Can a hole in the muffler cause a car to smoke?

Just having a hole in the muffler won't cause smoke to form. Any smoke coming from an engine is caused by either environment changes (white smoke while engine is warming up), or an engine burning oil (blue smoke). Sometimes even a bad catalytic converter can cause smoke. The hole in the muffler simply gives the smoke a way out. Trying looking for external oil leaks or checking he oil level occasionally to see if it is burning oil. You may see water vapor is there is a hole in the muffler but it wouldn't last long once the muffler warms up and the moisture is burned off. She shouldn't see actual smoke unless there is a problem with the engine.

Repairing a Bad Muffler?

The muffler is an important element of a vehicle's exhaust system. The purpose of a muffler is to reduce the noise and emissions that occur when your vehicle emits gases during operation. Similar to other parts of an automobile, a muffler can go bad and need to be repaired or replaced. An ineffective muffler gives warning signs to let you know when it is time to replace it. Knowing the symptoms of a bad muffler can help you diagnose the problem and eliminate other potential issues. Prolonging muffler repairs can lead to expensive maintenance cost in the future.Noise From Your MufflerAn engine produces a great deal of noise when it is in operation. A primary sign that your muffler needs repairing is a loud noise that comes from your vehicle when you start and drive it. Generally, your car will make a low rumbling noise that can escalate to a severe knocking noise if not treated. At times, a muffler may make a hissing or rattling sound at the onset of a problem. If you notice a continual noise when your start and drive your car, you should take your vehicle to an automotive mechanic shop to have your muffler inspected. In some cases, a muffler may need a simple repair and not a total replacement.Inspect the MufflerAnother way to detect a muffler issue is to physically inspect the muffler. The muffler is located underneath a vehicle near the rear. A muffler covered with rust or soot may be an indication that it needs to be repaired. You should also look for any holes in the muffler. A hole in a muffler needs to be repaired quickly because vehicles emit dangerous gases when in operation. A vehicle may also experience performance issues when the muffler is bad. A rough idle or excessive smoke from the tailpipe can be a sign that the muffler needs to be repaired. Driving with a bad muffler can make for an uncomfortable experience, so getting it repaired quickly will not only save you money, but reduce aggravation as well.
