Lost power and Black smoke:
You have a Failed MAP Sensor and / or the vacuum line is off or cracked.
The ECU thinks the engine is under full load and is getting all the fuel it can to the engine.
Hope this tip helps guide you to solve this problem.

SOURCE: grey smoke from my ford
hi from uk if you have to turn engine a little longer than normally? on initial start fro cold? and then starts/runs ok for rest of day ? then more than likely your engines glow plugs are in early stage of failing/burning out? these engines rely on pre heat of cylinders when starting especially from cold so they have glow plugs for this purpose indication of burning out is the grey smoke you report on cold starts this is fuel that is not being combusted due to poor cylinder compression/s being heated on first start but when engine heats up no problems so i suggest you renew all 4 glow plugs they are easy diy job and you can purchase from good motor stores not necessarily dealers they are just like spark plugs usually 10 mm socket/spanner to change em after disconnecting the elec supply cable from each hope this helps and inspires you? if milage is high then they are in need of renewal
