Laser KA - Smoking where it should not be smoking!

Hey peopls!

It's me, the idiot again :s2:

Anyway, please forgive me for describing the parts the same way your mother would, but I'd rather say it like that than get it wrong...

Anyway, that spout-thingy that comes off the air-cleaner? Well, basically I had a little trouble starting the car (we were at an awkward slope on a hill... the car was on a slop of maybe 40 degrees to it's right) and when it did finally start up, the spout on the air cleaner "spat" a small gust of black smoke..

Now, I have no idea what that means, so I think it's scary!! So I was wondering if you guys could tell me if it's hell bad, bad, medium, or "it happens sometimes" ?

Once the car has warmed up a little, it runs like a dream with no problem what so ever - occasionally it suddenly loses power on a hill (but that's most likely to be caused by the clutch slipping, the cluctch is being replaced as I type this by the mechanic up the road from here).

Anyway, so any info on that smoke would be gr8
thanx guys

oh yeah - I was also thinking could it be 'cos Dad half-flooded the engine maybe? (when trying to start it he pumps and pumps and pumps the accelerator like nothing else... goddammit he is obsessed!!)

Might be your PVC valve squirting out excess pressure from the crank case....however, I don't know much about 4 cyl engines.
