SOURCE: 2006 VW tdi black smoke while accelerating

I have the same problem. Do you have a DSG transmission? There are complaints on VW clubs about this problem. It seemed like an engine control issue but it is actually a confused transmission in my case. It seems to have trouble engaging and must send a signal to the engine to kill power. Recalibrating the transmission with VAG-COM made the problem go from a 3x daily issue to a weekly one. I have read that the DSG is very sensitive to oil levels. I am going to set mine properly and see if it helps. The calibration/adaptation only takes 10 minutes with VAG-COM

SOURCE: black smoke from exhaust

Try new sparkplugs. The guy who told you to get rid of it sounds like he drank too much energy drink this morning. You probably won't get much resale from that car, so it might be worth your time to fix it. A couple of new car payments might make you wish you had.

Ford transit 2.2 57 plate 110 t260 has just started to misfire and black smoke what could it be wrong please help

Several possibilities:
1. you have carbon build up on one or more valves preventing them from completely closing which would cause misfires and black smoke

2. worn rings allowing too much oil to remain in the cylinders

3. sticky choke preventing sufficient air for proper fuel mix causing misfires and incomplete combustion (black smoke)

4. dirty air intake filter

When first stating blows out black smoke then stops

the black smoke indicates the car upon start up is rich,getting too much fuel,then it gets burnt up that it stops smoking.have the fuel system cleaned as dirt in the injectors may cause the fuel to leak after shut down,like a flood condition.also have the fuel pressure regulator check it may not be maintaining fuel pressure at the correct pressure,too high of pressure.

1989 Ford F150 runs fine then starts smoking black smoke and quits. After 20 minutes will restart and go again.

You have an excess fuel delivery problem. Black smoke indicates that too much fuel is entering the combustion chamber. If this vehicle has a carburator, check the float bowl level. If it is injected the main things to look for would be a stuck throttle position sensor or an injector that is not closing

How much should my Ford ranger 2.5td be smoking,is it normal for diesel engens to smoke.

Sometimes diesel engines will put out black smoke under extreme acceleration. Other than that, they shouldn't smoke. Black is excess fuel, White smoke is water and bluish is oil. White smoke on a cool morning is not necessarily a sign of a problem unless it happens every time you start it through a warm day. Hope this helps.

Black smoke when i start engine, very rough idle.

sounds like possible a sensor went bad or is loosly connected. O2 sensor??? Also check the air filter. Sounds like whatever it is, is making the truck run rich----that would be the black smoke.

Hope this helps

2004 Excursion 6.0 diesel blows intermitent white smoke

I don't drive a Ford but I drive an International and white smoke on start up means the engine is too cold to properly burn the fuel. Your black oil or soot is unburnt fuel. You should look at your engine's preheat system for a malfunction.

Car dies if accelerator is not engaged

the starting problem could be head gasket if it got really hot..... black smoke wouldn't be oil, and gas would stink but not black smoke if it's old, it wouldn't really matter if it had been sitting for 4 months. black smoke is probably caused by a gas mixture problem, or maybe a stuck fuel injector.
