got snowed in here at school about 5 days ago. car sat until i dug it out earlier this afternoon. on initial startup, if i would rev it it would blow a little black smoke, i dont know what the actual afr was b/c the wideband hadnt heated up yet. drove it to blow it out as much as i could on the wet roads, was fine after that, hits the right [email protected] like it always had. was the richness just a temporary thing???
car is running upsolute BT v.2 w/440'[email protected]

If you had to "dig it out", did snow get into the exhaust? It may have been melted snow getting blown out of the pipe, polluted by soot deposits from the pipe.

yes i did get snow in the pipe, interesting and reasonable theory. i guess i just suspected the car itself b/c the up s/w has a little too much startup enrich.
