If you have a 2015 or 2016 MKC - TSB

This actually happened to me - Trying to do a master reset on the Sync3 system I had the engine idling about 10 or 15 minutes.. The next morning I started the MKC and it smoked to a point where my garage and driveway was filled. The dealer is applying this TSB while my Sync3 APIM is being replaced.

Could this be why there is black soot on my muffler? Just got a 2016 MKC and noticed it.

Soot is a byproduct of direct injection and is very common.. Use Barkeepers Friend stainless cleaner to take it off. This TSB issue is white smoke on startup after a previous long idle (over 10 minutes)

So it is normal to have black on the muffler? How long does it stay clean once you apply the cleaner?

If you don't drive it forever! In reality you may clean it every 2 or 3 months.
