Sprinter 313 black exhaust smoke

Our team van 2001 313cdi seems to make a lot of very sooty black exhaust, mostly under full throttle hen accelerating.
Air filter is clean, and fuel consumption doesn't appear appreciably affected. Emissions seem OK on the Mot too.
But it's a bit embarrasing, and tends to make anything being towed filthy.
Any ideas anyone?

Would a faulty egr valve on my 02 PT Cruiser 2.2crd cause excessive black smoke and injector knock under full throttle....thanks


black smoke is over fueling and although the turbo appears to spin ok the vale variation actuator may not be operating correctly
there are vanes in the exhaust turbine housing that are altered to increase the exhaust gas flow onto the turbine blades for quicker acceleration and these vanes are operated by a vacuum actuator and rod by a sensor
the vanes are subject to extreme heat and can rust stuck open or the hose gets hard and cracks
s not allowing the vanes to work
I would be concentrating in this area before the EGR valve
run the fault codes as well to get a better idea of the possible fault as some systems only put the light on for extreme conditions in engine and transmission

My BMW 525i pcv tubes was broken replaced all cleaned the icv had a lot of smoke cleared up within a week .seemed to have fixed but now I have small trail of sooty smoke


As a general rule black smoke is soot from excess fuel, white smoke is either steam or a great deal of unburned fuel (mainly diesels) and blue or blue/grey smoke is burning oil.

A trail of sooty smoke would indicate too much fuel is entering the cylinders. Perhaps you have a dribbling injector or a faulty sensor or perhaps your injectors are old and worn with bad spray patterns.

hi,
I've the same probem, it's been 'fixed' twice in the cars life but re-occurs.
I believe the throttle body gets 'gunked-up' possibly due to a faulty solenoid or sensor.
I don't have a full solution but will post when I do.

Sounds more like an O2 Sensor or just a coincidence that you lost a seal or something that is allowing oil into the exhaust. The Smoke tells me it's oil in the Exhaust as in most cases with an O2 sensor you would just get an odor of Fuel because it was flooding.
