One part I learned from the mechanic today was this:
If the car sits for a while, it will start up just fine and they took it around the block. Then the car acts up, starts coughing and blowing black smoke and they can barely get it back on the lot.

He said he thought it was a Cam or stuck valve which I told him I didn't agree with and it sounded more of a sensor issue.? They wont touch it for another week. I don't think they know what they are doing.
