Sounds like you have a clogged PCV valve thats the valve that lets the gases that get into the crankcase be rerouted back into the intake. It's silver about two inches and is usually in a rubber fitting in the valve cover and will have a hose on the other end. it's no tools installation just pull the hose off pull it out and replace with a new one. thats the first thing i'd do - 10 mins and 10 bucks should do it

My isuzu kb300 2005model gives white smoke and sometimes it cant accelerate and engin light comes on


KB
Welcome to the USA Fixya.com forum!
we don't have KB here. sorry.
History.(1 line, all bad)
2005 - Isuzu dealers in the United States have only one model, the Ascender SUV,
and guess what?, it's a rebadged GM car here, no more cars here, real isuzu.
KB are in Africa, Australia and in EUROPE not here in USA. so no books here to cover it.
nor is it covered here, at our great ,Mitchells online.

The KB300 is a 2.999 liter diesel, some are TDI. (most?)
and is called the 4JJ1-TC. (t= turbo)
That is direct injected, (means check turbo , and scan it first) after checking fuses.
The Check engine light on, same deal.
Check filters. for fuel and air.
2004 the D-max , family , introduced the DDI-ITeq common rail diesel engine.

So next time post your country.
And all symptoms.
power loss?
smoke?
Noises?
warning lamps.
etc.

Jaguar x 2.0 Diesel Problem no power alot of black smoke coming out as you drive , now i have oil on rad and all over battery


run fault codes and look for EGR valve and pcv valve faults. Black smoke is unburnt diesel so it may be the injectors need attention. If it is a turbo then check the oil lines to the turbo and check turbo operation as it may not be producing air pressure for the engine.

Ford focus tdci not starting and white smoke coming out of the exhaust


It is a clear case of the glow plugs malfunction. It had happened with my neighbor who tried to start his diesel focus one day.
Even jump starting with another battery didn't solve the starting problem.

You could also check the EGR valve for damages and if you want to save a couple of bucks, then go in for used parts for the focus from Good used Focus Stuff

My renault megane diesel had a humbing noise coming from the motor, then a lot of smoke appeared


check your turbo again. also check whether the waste gate valve is working by testing it with vacuum tester.Or check if any flex hose on turbo or inlet manifold has not cracked or sheared and cause a leak and that is why you might have low power with lots of smoke.

I'm affraid it's the turbo that is faulty, and it's not a cheap job. the turbo has a oil pipe going to the turbo to lubricate the turbo bearing . When the bearing wears out the oil enters the engine and burns causing to smoke. Good luck

Lots of black smoke, not the best power


Check the breather filter, a quick test is pull the oil dipstick and rev engine if oil rises up dipstick replace breather filter straight away as it will blow engine if not
