Some starter motors that continually miss engagement mash the ring gear teeth to the point that the pinion cannot disengage when the engine starts. This means that the starter becomes in effect a generator with uncomtrolled output. hence it overheats and burns. Have you checked that the teeth on the pinion of the new motor match the teeth on the ring gear. Ie are the teeth on one too course for the other

Excessive smoking inspite of new nozzles and newly calibrated injection pump


One of two things as far as i know that can cause this...
1... piston rings are shot (smokes all the time but worse when its cold)
2... Valve stem seals (mostly smokes when you accelerate)
Hope this is of use..

Yes it is . The remote starter wire has touch together and is wanting to start the starter, they have shorted together, The burning rubber smell is the wire melting due to the electrical short. Take the remote starter out plus the push button and reinstall using new set of wire And if you decide to install a new remote starter youll have to install a fuse in line with the positive wire.

Oil from turbo mixes with air resulting in huge volume of black smoke. Likewise, oil from turbo seeps thru connection between aluminum pipe connecting turbo and rubber pipe with nylon coating connected...


Your turbo has provisions for oil to cool bearings and the seals have blown out, although from my experience the result is white smoke if it is pumped into the hot exhaust. The reason it goes is usually a combination of things-high boost at cold temperatures, thicker oil under start up conditions or running oil that is a higher viscosity than recommended. Your crankcase pressures, the condition of the PCV and subsequent systems also contribute to this problem

The return path from the turbo is sometimes the issue and has to be clear, and I think the turbo seals could be bad, but black smoke is usually associated with excessive fuel.. You will also get alot of smoke when the oil return is slow to return the oil to the sump and it backs up into the turbo. It forces it's way out of the seals making it smoke.

Check the freeze plugs on the engine block.
These plugs/caps can leak when it is not sit perfectly.
Is the leak from tail pipe or from the engine area?
Start monitor for coolant and oil lose and report to the engine supplier.
Can you have a friend to do a drive along to see where the white smoke is coming from?

DO NOT rule out an incorrectly install head gasket set.
