Post 1994 C280 - Blowing Black Smoke

My C280 - 185,000 is surging from 500 rpm's to 1500 rpm's at idle. In drive with the brake covered, it seems to idle steady around 600 rpm's. If i give it gas is blows black smoke. i have no codes showing up. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Best place to ask or search is on your native forum, and I think you own a W202. Scroll down from here and look in the sedans section for what a 1994 C280 is and post this there. Off the top of my head it sounds like you are burning oil and that could be due to valve guides or oil rings.
