With only that little bit of info., i'll guess at spark plugs and a mass airflow sensor. is the engine lite on? what color is the smoke? maybe even coolant temp switch.

Twin turbo 80 horse power deutz Diesel engine blows black smoke under load


Diesel engines smoke when under a heavy load. Unlike a gas engines, a diesel engine uses fuel that is more like an oil.Smoking is a good indication the fuel is not completly burning because of loaded engine spee. White smoke indicates the fuel is not ignitingefficiently. Truck, boats, tanks abd anything else using diesel fuel will smoke when it gets more fuel than it can use.. Easing up on the throttle will lessen the smoke but not eliminate.. Of coarse if the demand is lessened by applying less loadyhe fuel consumption drops.Not to worry as long as the smoke doesn't attract the EPA.

I have a 1983 Toyota pick up w/ a 2.2 diesel that will not start in the cold. the glow plug light only stays on for a few seconds, and when I try to start it it just chugs and blows alot of black smoke. I...


first of check the glow plug or heater plug! be careful while removing heater plug from engine. due to aged vehicle, heater plug may crack and will remain there, and if that happen head of engine must be opened. check the heater plug by giving 12v dc current. give positive at top portion and negative at middle, and take alook whether heater plug is heating or not?

The car is chugging and also blowing out dark smoke


I do not know much about this vehicle but if it is diesel it sounds like you should clean and or replace air filter and or glow plugs or grid heater... if it is a gas vehicle changing the fuel filter and checking spark plug gaps and plugs and wires also the cap and rotor may have where witch will cause intermittent and weak spark so you could be getting to much fuel and running rich. also if it has a catalytic converter you may want to check if it is partially clogged and if it is have it replaced hope this helps good luck
