Black smoke means too much fuel .
Have you changed your air filter or is it clean. A dirty air filter will flood your engine.
Is your choke working properly?
Could be your carburetor float is sticking.
Not sure but there are computer sensors in some makes that could cause flooding if they are not working properly.
I am sure there are other things that could be the cause but you can start here.

SOURCE: my Toyota hi ace engine

This is usually a sign of a bad head gasket. coolant is entering the cylinder(s) and is being burnt off as steam. coolant is also mixing with the engine oil. The color of the engine oil would be that of coffee with lots of cream if the head gasket is blown. The radiator would also be low on coolant.

I have a 2005 Toyota hiace 2kd turbo diesel when I'm driving its loosing power as if the engine is going to shut down, I did 2 different scan/diagnostic and the issue still haven't resolve.

Save the diagnostic checks until there is noting else to physically check, look at or adjust. Best practice is hands on - first!

Try checking the turbo boost pressure.
Check for restricted exhaust, especially if fitted with a particulate filter.
Check the operation of the egr valve.
Check all vacuum connections and pipes...

I have toyota hilux 2.5d4d 2kd engine it smokes allot blue smoke an engine shakes allot what can be problem

if there is a lot of blue smoke its burning engine oil and the shaking is because the plugs are not firing correctly because they are fouled by the oil. also could be plug wires worn out, distributor cap and rotor if it has one as you don`t say what year this is. the burning oil could be rings, valve seals/guides, PCV system plugged.

Toyota Hilux 2008, 2KD engine. cleaned injector nozzle. Now the car has a black smoke, lower engine power & engine vibration for z first 45 minutes of morning warm up. any idea folks? Frezer

if you dismantled the injector to clean it then you need to take it to a specialist diesel shop to have it recalibrated
It is not a matter of pull it apart , clean and reassemble and it will be ok .
With high pressure injectors ( 20.000 psi +) that is not how it works and will be the root cause of your current problems.

The pump is probably ok from the tank but the injector pump may have been damaged if the filter failed and allowed particulate to enter the pump also the injectors themselves maybe clogged best way to check the pump is with an oscilloscope (lab scope) check the amperage waveform with the lab scope and calculate the rpm , also check the fuel pressure from the pump with an appropriate fuel gauge
