    2004 Sprinter. Turbo shuts down and allows only 65 mph. When restarted it goes well for a few seconds and does it again. black smoke comes out. replaced fuel filter and the resinator and still shuts off .

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Well still no turbo only goes 2500 rpms. Finally broke down and took it to a dealer. Will cost $ 4,200 to get the carbon out of 4 of the five cylinders and replace 5 fuel injectors that were cleaned a few weeks ago. Dealer said high mileage 200K would cause that. I have had black smoke and low performance for 3 months. I wonder if the low performance and the black smoke leaded to the carbon in the engine due to the low performance.??? An expensive lesson.

Black smoke from exhaust

This is almost certainly a split hose - mine was the large hose coming out of the bottom of the EGR valve.

Speaking to a parts guy at my local Jaguar dealer, he said that the new part is uprated as Jaguar are aware that this is a problem.

The split allows more air in and results in the ECU changing the mixture and over fuelling - Black smoke is an indication of un-burnt Diesel. As well as the black smoke you may also notice a whistle/whine or sucking noise when you accelerate and a lack of power / lumpiness at around 2000rpm.

Hope that helps!
