    Cold start= black smoke !

    My tt has been chucking out nasty black smoke when started from cold.
    Only for a few seconds..but it is choking stuff in a single garage,and does not look good outside either !
    It has been doing this from the first weeks of ownership,I thought it would go away in time,after running in.
    Local Porsche garage tested it when warm and it came up no fault found .
    They want it back to test it from cold.
    No ..more than normal oil consumption...or leaks !
    Has anyone suffered the same ??

    Re: Cold start= black smoke !

    You could leave it with the dealer overnight so that they can see the symptoms for themselves when they start the car from cold in the morning....hopefully, you'll be able to diagnose the problem and fix it:!

    Re: Cold start= black smoke !

    Mine tends to do it if it's been left unused for a few days. It's more dark grey than black and only lasts for a couple of seconds. My Boxster does the same.

    Re: Cold start= black smoke !

    It's normal

    Re: Cold start= black smoke !

    Normal for a flat 6.

    Also make sure you let your car cool down for a few seconds after a spirited drive before shutting it off.

    Both my TT and boxster do that from time to time, but it is always white smoke, never black smoke. I would have it checked.

    Re: Cold start= black smoke !

    My Boxster S blows white smoke sometimes just on start up, particularly if my previous trip was only a few miles. Can be a bit embarassing really when it happens in front of a crowd of people but I'm told it's absolutely nothing to worry about.

    Re: Cold start= black smoke !

    My TT blows out what seems like tonnes of white/grey/blue smoke on start up. Choking and hard to see through. Seems to happen after a day or two's rest?

    Re: Cold start= black smoke !

    Mine does it as well. This is Normal.

    Re: Cold start= black smoke !

    Normal for Porsche.

    Re: Cold start= black smoke !

    normal.. my TT too...

    Re: Cold start= black smoke !

    I also get the odd puff of dark smoke, which I have been told is nornal for any P flat 6.
