2004 Ford F-350 6.0 Turbo Diesel - Severe Hesitation at Take Off

Hesitation at take off, a puff of black smoke then "catches up" and runs great. I've changed all filters. While in neutral or park, rev engine and no black smoke, rpms are normal. Only when under a load does it hesitate and smoke then run great.

Some of these engines have a place to drain water out of the fuel system.. Some fords actually have a stick under the hood that you push or pull That opens a valve on a water collection bowl. It's not labeled usually. It might state where it is in the owners manual under fuel water drainage or something similar.. if that bowl is full it will cause hesitation... If it gets over full it will cause runability problems. Another possibility since you said it's black smoke is one of your injectors is sticking at low rpms and squirting raw fuel into the cylinder till the rpms get up enough to burn that fuel off completely then then the injector works a little better.... Do you notice any missing... Feel something under the hood like the air cleaner housing and make sure the vibration is constant and doesn't have a small sudden shake and the n smoothe... And then a small sudden shake again.
If it does have this shake you can trouble shoot which injectors by with the engine running loosening an injector line and seeing if the engine runs worse or not.. If it runs worse tighten it up and move to the next line till you unscrew one and feel and hear no difference... When you find that one that's the injector with the problem.

Hi my 2006 3.2 blows puffs of un-burnt diesel smoke intermittently after it has been driven in traffic


have the variable vanes in the turbo checked for correct operation
there is an actuator that is vacuum
electrical sensor controlled and the vanes may be sticking at slow engine operations as on traffic
the smoke color indicates incorrect air/fuel ratio and the turbo is a point to investigate

Excessive black smoke puffs out when I take off or try to pick up speed. Is it the turbo or injectors that need replacing


I'm suspecting it is a diesel you are reffering to. Excessive black smoke is due to unburned fuel. You may have an injector issue where one or more is leaking. Very doubtful as to a turbo problem causing this. I would suggest a strong diesel fuel treatment in the fuel be tried first ( possibly several applications ) to see if it helps. Injector replacement is expensive

Engine dies then picks up again


Are you getting black puffs of smoke out the back when it slows and pedal is down? Have you ever changed the crankshaft filter? , this is not on any service schedule it is located under the wiring harness for the injectors , a way to check this is to have someone sit in car with it running , with the bonnet up take out the dipstick with it idling then get your helper to SLOWLY rev the engine if you can see oil coming up the dipstick the filter is clogged . Have you ever taken the erg valve out and cleaned along with the air intake manifold?.

White smoke comes out my car when i start it but goes after a while


Usually high humidity in the exhaust system. Check the exhaust pipe inclination to see if it doesn't allow water to flow into the muffler.
Also after the smoke goes, i.e the car is well warmed up, put the car in Park or Neutral. Tap the gas pedal to get some quick revs. Look for small puffs of white smoke. If you see some then get ready for a rings job. This can be confirmed by removing the spark plugs. They'll have oil deposit on them.
