Power loss and black smoke kia sedona 2002 diesel

I have a power loss with my kia sedona 2.9crdi. when pulling away in 1st gear it has a lot of black smoke out of the exhaust. it is slightly worse when the engine is cold .i have changed the fuel filter, checked the egr valve, the turbo has been checked (although it seems to have lost its "whistle"),The air mass flow meter has been changed.Air cooler is ok.It has blocked/ choked the cat with dust but i have removed this from the system whilst trying to find the cause.I dont think it is the injectors as it is an intermittant fault.It has been on a kia diagnostic machine showing no electric faults. and i have also been in the fuel tank looking for filings but it was clean.Do you have any ideas what to check next and does it have and electric fuel pump? if not how does it maintain the fuel pressure for the common rail?

I have a 2005 KIA sedona. And when driving it sounds like it has a turbo. It also has no umph.instead it loses power going up hill. while the turbo sound it hesitate to shift gear.

Yours should be a 2.9 crd Turbo diesel if I'm correct & from what your describing sounds like you need to change out the diesel filter. These filters get clogged causing lack of power specially going up hill.
Is it blowing out black smoke? There could be other problems as well. Need more info like is the engine light on?

2012 kia sedona white smoke comes out of exhast when first started

White smoke is usually an indication of burning antifreeze and burning oil would have a more bluish tint to it and smell like burning oil. If it's a 2012, isn't it still covered by the KIA warranty though??

My 3rd gear started grinding then 2nd and 1st, how do I check if its the hydraulics for kia sedona 2002, or does the clutch ned replacing?

Are you losing any fluid at the reservoir? Either way Its probably the hydraulics. normally if the mechanical units(pressure and clutch plate) were to fail, there would be immediate loss of clutch on all gears.I'm a little surprised that 1st gear didn't start grinding before the others though since pumping the clutch would build up abit of pressure in the system. Start by examining the bores of the clutch master and slave cylinder for scouring. If they're ok then replace the rubber seals(a.k.a kits in some parts) and bleed the system. Its certainly a cheaper, time saving first option before then attempting the mechanicals.

change the air filter usually works a treat. if not get some of he de-coking fluid to add to your fuel. u can gat it in most motor factors for a low cost and this also helps your engine immensly. if it neither of these work let me know and we can go further but it usually gets more expensive after this
