Have you changed the crancase breather situated at the rear of the engine by the air filter, cost is about £30 from Landrover, should be changed every 12000 miles, often lasts 60000 miles and then it shows a problem. If not changed the crancase will pressurise and you will get oil coming out of the engine all over the place and clouds of soke from exhaust.

Possibly needs new air filter. Is the veh fitted with an EGR valve? If so, it could be sticking open.

Hi ,, i have a 4 litre mazda t4000 ,, its a horse truck ... it blows a fair bit of black smoke when going up hills and some white smoke when i start it up ... should i worry ... thanks


The black smoke is unburnt diesel fuel- lift your foot. When I was learning to drive diesel trucks (many years ago, in one of these trucks) I was taught that when going up hill under load, I should lift off the accelerator until it just starts to die off, then give it a little bit just to hold revs. No more black smoke.

When you start it, do you let the glow plugs heat for long enough? (Does it have them? I can't remember).

Golf SE 1.8l 1781 cc auto, constant jerking. Have tried all possibles suggestions but still not fixed


try this to see if it gets any better,from stop.put into drive and let car accelerate without gas(do not touch gas pedal) around 30/35 mph is about right.STOP.then use 1/3rd gas(keep foot still)and do same(around 60/70 mph)STOP. then foot to floor and go to max legal speed.then back off to 1/3rd pedal.then stop.you have just reset computerised gearbox settings.(only use 1/3rd gas for about 250miles,and you will feel the difference(boring)but saves you a fortune in fuel costs.and if you still have problem put on diagnostic to check out.

Truck Not Starting


Sounds like you have to much gas going thru the throttle body. When you put your foot on the gas it opens the airway and lets air and no gas. The black smoke is unburned gas. Replace the throttle body and you should be good to go. It could be the fuel sensor also, telling the pump the wrong info.

Smoke coming from exhaust at higher speeds or when putting foot down, also acceleration jerky like am blipping the accelerator not cruising used to cruise 110 no bother now its taking it to reach 100


If the smoke is blue, it is burning oil. If it is black or dark grey it is running way too rich, like your choke is stuck on. That would also explaing the jerky acceleration and poor response. Your fuel consumption will also skyrocket.
