Loads of black smoke, loss of power and heating all indicate a faulty turbo--not winding up to provide the air flow required
check turbo actuator got the turbine vanes
Take it to a turbo repair shop and have it tested.

SOURCE: oil change light

Turn the key on. Observe the odometer. Is "ODO" displayed? If not, push the trip meter button until "ODO" is displayed, with the total mileage travelled shown.
Turn the key off.
Push & HOLD the trip reset button until advised to release it.
Turn the key to "ON" (do not start engine)
Observe the ODO display.
You should see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then one, and finally, five zeros.
The original mileage that you observed should be redisplayed.
Release the trip reset button.
The proceedure is now complete.

My toyota d4d hilux double cab is emitting black smoke

Black smoke is usually excess fuel, that can be caused by things such as leaky fuel injectors, bad coolant temp sensor, weak spark (bad coil?). You don't say what year or engine. If a carburetor, it may need overhaul. If excess fuel gets really bad, it can wash the oil off the piston rings and cause rings to wear, plus dilute engine oil causing bearing failure.

Would a faulty egr valve on my 02 PT Cruiser 2.2crd cause excessive black smoke and injector knock under full throttle....thanks

black smoke is over fueling and although the turbo appears to spin ok the vale variation actuator may not be operating correctly
there are vanes in the exhaust turbine housing that are altered to increase the exhaust gas flow onto the turbine blades for quicker acceleration and these vanes are operated by a vacuum actuator and rod by a sensor
the vanes are subject to extreme heat and can rust stuck open or the hose gets hard and cracks
s not allowing the vanes to work
I would be concentrating in this area before the EGR valve
run the fault codes as well to get a better idea of the possible fault as some systems only put the light on for extreme conditions in engine and transmission

sounds about right for what i think it is ,now remove the EGR valve and make a gasket from a coca cola can and do not cut the middle out ,so it blocks it off completely then try it as i am almost positive this is your problem .

Turbo works on the engine from the moment you start it. It does not kick in as people use to say. Loss of power and acceleration is caused by many different things, get diagnostics done and you will know exactly.

2004 f350 6.0 diesel engine has been loosing power occasionally and sounds like it is popping back through the intake side of turbo and blowing lots of black smoke. going around a curve to the right then...

sounds like the egr valve has a chunk of carbon in it. LOL I am working on an 04 f250 with a 6.0l.. same problem-you can handle this yourself though. On top of the engine where your intercooler tube attaches on the right. Look right behind that and you will see a small canister with a plug going into the top of it. Almost the same size as the fuel filter but located just in front of the oil filter. remove the 2 8 or 10mm bolts and turn back and forth on the egr valve while pulling hard. It will come out and look at the plunger in the end of it. probably a black chunk of crud holding the valva open. It will rob your power and cause the black smoke.. Hope this helps.

I have black smoke blowing out the exhaust wen i step on the gas

I own a 2004 F-350 with the 6.0 Turbo Deisel...My wife has been driving it periodicll arround town and had mentioned from time to time it seemed to not want to get going. Well yesterday I went and picked the boat up and on my way home the truck lost all power and was spewing black smoke. After reading a few blogs I decided to pull the EGR Valve.. It sits right on top of the engine (from the front bumper looking at the engine) just forward and to the left of the oil filter. Two 8mm bolts and it comes off ( rotate back and forth while pulling up). The EGR valve was covered in soot and partialy in the open matter how far I manually opened the valve it stayed in that position.. After checking the price of a new EGR ., I decided a little home remedy was in need.. I let the valve portion of the EGR ( the lower porting, NOT THE ACTUATING PORTION) soak in fuel over nite. Cleaned the soot off and lubricated the valve shaft. Actuated the valve manualy an few times and it began to spring closed beautifully..A tad more touch up cleaning..reinstalled the valve and was able to hear a feel a noticeble difference in the way the turbo spooled up... no black smoke .. and running smoother... Quick fix..easy fix.. so easy I plan to make this part of my oil change ritual... pull the valve .. clean and lube... HOPE THIS HELPS ! !
