Cause of bad charging system.. It's smoke because the engine is overheat because the cooling fan is not working well. The battery is because alternator is working well.

Testimonial: "The smoke is caused from the over revving and smells of unburnt diesel fuel, don't think it's the alternator as it only has been reconditioned 2 wks ago. Thanks hope this helps more."

the box has to come out im afraid,but do not replace the gear,just the baulk ring,as a matter of interest we used to take out the whole engine/ transmision as a unit (easier to work with on a stand.)

This symptom is usually due to worn valve guides. The guides allow oil to drip into the manifold ports. When the engine starts, it has to burn off the oil, but the leakage is so small that it becomes unnoticable after the engine has been running. To prevent this, the cylinder head(s) must be removed and the valve guides either knurled or replaced. Please let me know if you have more questions.

black smoke is one indication of a motor running very rich...the sensor that has the most control of this will be the the airflow meter...ive seen black smoke coming from all types of cars when these go bad
