If it's white smoke, it's oil. If it's black smoke, it's fuel. Make sure you haven't over-filled you oil levels.
If it's worse when you first start it, the oil is leaking down from the valves. You may even have some debris preventing it from flowing back into the block.

1992 Peterbilt 379 feels sluggish pulling load up hill and is blowing black smoke


have a turbo boost pressure test done under load on a chassis dyno
under load the boost should be right up
check for leaks in the intercooler hose fittings or cracks in the intercooler
black smoke under load indicates a faulty turbo or turbo air leaks.

Twin turbo 80 horse power deutz Diesel engine blows black smoke under load


Diesel engines smoke when under a heavy load. Unlike a gas engines, a diesel engine uses fuel that is more like an oil.Smoking is a good indication the fuel is not completly burning because of loaded engine spee. White smoke indicates the fuel is not ignitingefficiently. Truck, boats, tanks abd anything else using diesel fuel will smoke when it gets more fuel than it can use.. Easing up on the throttle will lessen the smoke but not eliminate.. Of coarse if the demand is lessened by applying less loadyhe fuel consumption drops.Not to worry as long as the smoke doesn't attract the EPA.

My 2001 xj cherokee TD blows excessive smoke when the engine is under pressure.


Sounds like a broken oil ring. As far as the engine stalling, if your really low on oil the motor will shut down so as not to damage any bearings and other internal parts. Does the engine seem to be turning over faster and taking longer to start than usual and take a little longer to stop when you turn the engine off. If so you could have an issue with the compression rings in one or more cylinders. Do a compression test. If the #s are near where they should be it's likley oil rings. If the #s are low it's likley the compression rings. Either way if its one of those issues you'll need to overhaul your engine

You will have to check the start switch.If its smoking you have a short in it which could cause a fire.Thats why it keeps blowing the fuse its a short in the switch.
