Escort diesels dont usually have injectors with wires on them. It sounds like it has got a wrong injector fitted. Unless the wires connect to something else, a standard injector should be ok. If you are in any doubt, have a word with a techy at your local ford garage

2005 diesel smart car starts then dies after a few seconds. changed pump. fuel filter, pressure sensor, cleaned air intake including turbo. Has good fuel pressure. cleaned injectors, have good spray.


black smoke = excessive fuel = bad injector tips , low injector pressure , turbo not working properly
take the car to an accredited diesel specialist professional for a pump pressure and injector pressure test, injector calibration and tip replacement

My 1992 nissan terrano blows to much black smoke .how to fix this .some say i have unbirt fuel?


if diesel and turbo , check turbo operation of for holes in the intercooler
if turbo or naturally aspirated check/ replace injector tips as black smoke indicators squirting and not atomizing
if petrol check for excessive fuel pressure, faulty injectors , leaking injector seal
regardless of petrol or diesel --black smoke indicates incorrect air / fuel ratio ( too much fuel) so injectors, intercooler, bad turbo or blocked air cleaner are all candidates for the fault

1800 diesel escort van uneven running when first starting


most likely from faulty injectors
could be from dribbling tips allowing air into the injector that is eventually purged allowing the injector to operate properly
I suggest that the injectors be pulled and reconditioned by an accredited diesel specialist shop

I got a tata 407 turbo but the performance is poor it also smokes black and the fuel is black can some please help


Best I can tell this is a diesel truck? I know diesel, but
depending on age could be injectors, possibly Diesel injection pump hopefully not. The fuel is black? Someone is putting old engine lubricating oil in the fuel tank. It will increase the problem of black smoke. It may also have a bad smell because of the engine oil. If the turbo is not spinning properly (high pitched whine) the bearings may be bad and it's not getting enough air into the engine. This would also explain the smoke problem. Take it to a Diesel specialist!

Hi I have put a new turbo on my mazda 6 diesel. There is no oil leak there is just loss of power as if there is no turbo. It's as if max speed I can get upto is 90. Part from that there car runs g


Since the power generated by the turbo depends on the volume of combustion gas generated, look into your fuel delivery system. Your engine might not be receiving the required amount of fuel. Check your fuel pump, filter, injectors, and lines.

Rich condition no codes


Could be a number of things: a vacuum leak: check your hoses for proper routing and no leaks from cracked, brittle rubber. Check your intake manifold where it mates to block for an air leak (if you have an air leak-vacuum leak, your computer compensates by spraying more gas.)
Could be an injector is leaking gas into a cylinder, or not operating properly.
Is your air filter clean? A tune-up (plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter) may fix the problem.
Another possibility is a tired oxygen sensor.
Good luck.

Hi i have an Volvo 2001 s60 d5 turbo, i purchased it about 6 months and in board computer was showing in italian (motore necesita assist) but it was running well and it was starting very nice no sound no...


I would suggest trying to purge the air from the fuel lines by loosening the fuel lines at the injectors (if possible) and cranking the engine for a moment or two, then tightening the lines, try to start the car, if it starts, loosen the injector fuel lines again while it's running, one injector at a time, to purge any remaining air. I hope this helps, and good luck.

My 1999 turbo diesel escort has got a fuel prob iv changed the fuel filter,and it still juders,trys to stoll and blue smoke comes from the exhaust iv also added a injector cleaner to the fuel. please help


Sounds like the turbo seal is leaking just from the symptoms but the blue smoke can also be valve guides or valve seats. It can also be the piston rings that have seized to the piston body.

It is time to save yourself a $75.00 shop charge and buy a compression tester. (make sure you have the Diesel compression test adapter also) Then check the compression on all cylinders. If the compression is good then your looking at either turbo or cylinder head repairs. The blue smoke is telling you it is time to do something as it will be sitting on the sidelines come the next SMOG test.

2003 ford transit diesel fuel getting to injectors engine is turning over but not firing


Have your injection pump checked. If the diesel fuel feed
going to the pistons is not highly atomized, there's no way that the diesel fuel gets to explode to keep your
engine to run. However, also check the air filter system
going to your engine. To get the diesel fuel to explode needs right air fuel ratio. Once these are checked, I'm
sure you get your diesel car running.
