SOURCE: 2004 duramax black smoke and sputtering when

Black smoke means "fuel not being combusted" or "runnig rich". I have no doubt you have gasoline. Your spark may not be burning the gas. Is there a check eng lite? If EGR was sticking, you would probably get a check engine light for this. If your truck has a Vortec design, I would find out if you need a new "spider". What is your mileage? Are you due for a tune up? What spark plugs are you using? Vortec? "Not all the time" sounds like intermittent. When was the last time you changed the fuel filter? Can't hurt to change this. This would be the actaul starting point for me. I would change the fuel filter which is under the driver under the chasis. You will need a 16MM and a 20MM. USE ONLY LINE WRENCHES. You may need a fuel line disconnect kit too depending on your model. Notice it only happens on acceleration? that is when you are forcing even more fuel thru the system, but not enough of a fuel stream make cause sputtering and when the fuel comes thru too rich that would be the black smoke. It sounds like you have the 2 extremes. is there afuel regulator on your vehicle? If so, you may need to change that too. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2001 S10 4.3 vortec 4x4.

it could need a fuel injector cleaning or replacement if an injector has a problem.check the air filter as i`v seen them so plugged to cause this type of problem.there could also be a problem with the throttle position sensor(tps)not sensing the proper voltage increase when moving the throttle.i guess you installed a new fuel pump not a used pump but sometimes even a new pump is defective and the fuel pressure and volume should be checked.it`s also possible the catalytic converter is plugging up and needs to have the exhaust back pressure checked.at idle the pressure should be less than 1lb pressure and at 2,000 rpm`s should be less then 2.how dirty was the filter when it was replaced it could need changing again if there is alot of dirt in the fuel system.

it really doesn't matter--- what broke it is repaireable
take it to an accredited diesel repair shop as they may have an explanation as to why the clip failed and have a modified unit to carry out the repair
contact the service dealer and ask if there is a service bulletin or recall current on the failure

On 2005 duramax injectors, is there a recall on this issue


05 duramax injectors have gone bad I'm told because the ecm has gone bad. Is this the case or I'm I being told a crock? They say it needs 4 injectors. While I was driving down the road it started missing and then it would quit and start missing again. After about 6 miles it died. After changing the fuel filter and priming the system it would not start unless assisted with gas vapor. It will run for a few seconds (20 or so) very rough with no power at all and then would die. Does Chevrolet have any recomendations or will they give any assistence with this problem. I don't think I'm the first person that has had injector problems with the Duramax .

Thanks

Hi,

Assuming no combustion chamber or fuel delivery faults, most turbo diesel engines exhibits this. The delayed is referred to as turbo lag and the smoke is fuel not completely burned since the fuel system tends to be a little rich when the turbo has not attained boosting RPM. Other than to have your injectors cleaned/replaced, the injector pump re-calibrated and/or the turbo checked for leakage, nothing much could really be done. Alternatives are to use fuel additives, re-check of the computer's map/software and/or change of driving habits. The idea is not to floor the accelerator until the turbo has reached the designated RPM where it kicks in.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
