Re: power loss & exhaust smoke
I think its a very good idea, to replace the oil filter, fuel filter and air filter when you replace the engine oil. I will guess that the fuel filter is in need of replacement. It's also an idea for you to check the air filter. To check the air filter, use a very strong light and hold it behind the filter....If you can see the light through the filter material you're safe, if not you need it replaced. The air filter is a very important filter for durable engine life.
If that doesn't work, we'll need to learn more about what happened as a lead up to the problem.

the bigger tyres the more power it takes to turn them
You have very big tyres so suffer a loss of power
with extra power and the oil pressure falling, I would suspect worn big ends and main bearings especially with the smoking exhaust as under load of acceleration the extra clearance in the bearings is allowing extra oil onto the cylinders and the oil rings cannot cope.
exhaust system has no effect
Then it could be because of carbon build-ups in your engine's
combustion chamber. This is left behind with unburned fuel. It causes
poor acceleration, a loss in power, lower top speed, and burns more
fuel than it really has too. Not to mention causes smoke belching.
The best way to get rid of that would be to have a carbon ridding solution injected into
the combustion chamber. The solution will liquify the carbon and other build-ups,
which would then restore the "power" of your car. You'll get better
acceleration, higher rpm and top speed, save fuel, etc. have a mechanic do it for
you. It's alot cheaper and faster than having the engine overhauled (overhaul could trigger "loose compression").
Smoke on the exhaust shows an indication of the fault on the car engine. A blue smoke is an indication of fuel loss, a blue smoke also indicates that oil is burning due to cylinder lining or rings failure. Also blck smoke indicates high acceleration specially in diesel engines and also can be an indicator of a poor engine state. Also if the silencer is clogged it can show up black smoke on acceleration. It will be best to check for oil use, cylinder compression and fuel use so that you can get an inference on the fault.
hello,according to service information;smoke formation or si 07.16-p-0004a (service inform) from mb ,your engine have normal function,if you want ,ask your dealer about the service inform with number 07.16-p-0004a,you can read the explanation regarding your problem,ty
Black smoke is almost always an indication that the air/ fuel mix (ratio), is too rich. I would try to find out if the just cleaned the injectors or were they replaced. Cleaning injectors and sometimes leave irregularly shaped orifices. Besure the air filter is clean. This can effect mix also.
Good Luck and hope this helps.
