Question about Cars & Trucks
If it has a turbo it could be related to that, it could also be related to a worn engine and injectors. Have you checked the turbo air ducts for leaks and used a good quality injector cleaner in the fuel? Difficult to diagnose without driving it

The black smoke is a sign of excessive gasoline not burning completely, there is a wide range of probabilities that may be causing this to happen my best advise would be to have it diagnosed with a scanner, otherwise you could spend a lot of money replacing "probable" malfunctioning parts till you find the one that was broken (eg: EGR valve, MAF, coils, injectors, etc.) good luck

Great engines/trucks!! This is a sign of fouling internally. Try some diesel injector cleaner with a few tanks of fuel and it will probably clear right up. If there are no performance issues, this shouldn't be anything major at all. Look up BG and have some shipped. This is probably some of the best stuff. If this can not be found, any good name brand will work. Just make sure it IS for diesels. Let me know if you need anything else.
