My 1992 nissan terrano blows to much black smoke .how to fix this .some say i have unbirt fuel?


if diesel and turbo , check turbo operation of for holes in the intercooler
if turbo or naturally aspirated check/ replace injector tips as black smoke indicators squirting and not atomizing
if petrol check for excessive fuel pressure, faulty injectors , leaking injector seal
regardless of petrol or diesel --black smoke indicates incorrect air / fuel ratio ( too much fuel) so injectors, intercooler, bad turbo or blocked air cleaner are all candidates for the fault

Ford e 350 runs rough blows black smoke until you restart it


the truck is either an e350 0r f250 right? now which?
Gas powered rigs ? call the dealer to inquire about outstanding recalls. inspect your fuel pressure regulator for the correct number
F4TZ or newer should be seen. check the oil dipstick for a fuel smell. if the spark plugs show excessive fuel or carbon. change the oil first, and the filter. then use an update regulator, and tune up.
diesel rigs? theres a possibility of fuel injector pump and or injector problems. first determine the glow plug system is right. see a diesel tech about what diesel fuel system yours is equipped with, do the required maintenance, and with good parts does it smoke cold only, warm only or both. then you can begin to get answers. several systems were used and engine displacement must be known to look it up. a faulty glow plug controller or inoperative glow plugs can contribute to cold smoke, a faulty injector pump or leaky injectors can cause warm smoke. some diesels have the newer system and there are a series of updates you must have. parts are very expensive so do your homework first. build date, engine size, injector type, outstanding recalls, tsb's tech service messages. these can all be found at the ford dealer. they will be happy to answer your questions.

2005 Ford F250 6.0 turbo diesel blows black smoke out exhaust and has no power when I try to excellerate.


1. check charge air tube,loosing boost pressure=low power and black smoke
2. check for air filter restriction,if it cant breathe it will blow smoke and run like ****
3. check for rotational drag on the turbo compressor wheel, it may be locking up causing low power and black smoke, much like cummins vgt turbo
4.oil quality,poor oil quality, ie long intervals between oil changes.
5. may have a leaking injector, not common with this style of injector but i wouldnt rule it out if nothing else checks out.....hope this helps.

Hello i have a 1994 gmc 6,5 diesel turbo and under load is overheating i replace fan clutch, thermostat and when remove the water pump the driver side of the block was dry any idea


Sounds like it might be blowing gases into the water jacket. Blown head gasket?
I would fill system up, start engine with rad cap closed. Rev up COLD engine and then check the upper rad hose for pressure. Squeeze it. If it seems to have pressure already, its likely head gasket. Put a towel over rad cap and take it off slowly, listen for pressure release while still cold engine. (Bad sign) Then wait for it to warm up and themostat to open, rev the engine and look for bubbles in the flow of coolant which burst with a little puff of steam or smoke. If neither of these happens, that is a good sign of not being head gasket. But it may be occuring only at high pressure, "under load". Dont know how much load that means..
Good luck
PS. I'm not really an expert here, (turbo diesels) just general knowlege.

Car runs OK cold but when warm it seems **** it is running on 3 cylinders. I have taken it to a shop and they cannot tell me what is wrong


Is it Diesel (turbo/non-turbo) or petrol? If its petrol then get the ignition system checked, for diesel it looks like problem with fuel pump.

WAS BLOWING BLACK SMOKE AFTER RUNNING GREAT, NOW.....


I wouldn't drive it until you get a scan done to determine what the problem. Diesels are very expensive to fix. I would lean towards the cam shaft sensor has failed but don't quote me on that.
