Hi midcb69, we would like you to do a quick check on the turbo assy. to make sure the turbo is ok, first remove the boost pipe(thats the one coming out of turbo to charge air cooler) and inspect inside the turbo for oil residue, if oil residue is present turbo is passing oil and loosing boost causing low power and insufficient air to engine causing black,if there is no sign of oil residue at boost port on turbo than remove intake hose from turbo inspect the intake impeller for sign of damage or scoring along housing next try to move the impeller shaft in and out and up and down we are looking for excessive play if excessive play is present turbo needs replacement, let us know how turbo checks out and report back as soon as test is complete thanks.

I wouldn't drive it until you get a scan done to determine what the problem. Diesels are very expensive to fix. I would lean towards the cam shaft sensor has failed but don't quote me on that.

Misfiring cylinder 3 & 4


Sounds like a bad turbo to me. When you "kick it in", the engine falters and you get black smoke for a while. What is probably happening is that the turbo is leaking oil into the intake air stream, putting it into the cylinders with the fuel/air mix and causing one of two issues. Either the oil is inhibiting the combustion process, causing the falter and the resulting poor ignition, plus the oil, is giving black smoke, OR, the oil in the cylinders is fouling the plug momentarily, resulting in the fuel/oil being passed into the exhaust stream, burned in the catalytic converter and exits as black smoke. If it runs OK except when under turbo load, have that thing checked out ASAP. And, as far as the light staying on, most faults will set permanently after they occur three or more times within a certain period of time. This is ti ensure that intermittent faults won't cause false setting of the light.

2006 HYUNDAI Elantra develops heavy black smoke and low pulling power runs 147198kms. Please supply the causes


the cause of the heavy black smoke is un-burnt fuel. is from excessive fuel pressure, faulty injectors,ignition timing out. If it is a turbo operation then the turbo is not producing the correct boost for the fuel settings . Check turbo for vane actuation . low power comes from overfuelling, low air flow. run the fault codes to see which sensors are out of parameter.

2005 Ford F250 6.0 turbo diesel blows black smoke out exhaust and has no power when I try to excellerate.


1. check charge air tube,loosing boost pressure=low power and black smoke
2. check for air filter restriction,if it cant breathe it will blow smoke and run like ****
3. check for rotational drag on the turbo compressor wheel, it may be locking up causing low power and black smoke, much like cummins vgt turbo
4.oil quality,poor oil quality, ie long intervals between oil changes.
5. may have a leaking injector, not common with this style of injector but i wouldnt rule it out if nothing else checks out.....hope this helps.

Black smoke and lack of power from BMW x5d. I have checked all turbo pipes for breakage and they are fine, there is no noise from the turbo which generally means it's fine I heard a pop when this...


Perform an ODBII scan and look for a Mass Air Flow sensor fault. The pop you heard was most likely a back fire and could have damaged the MAF sensor. A bad MAF sensor can result in overly rich (black smoke) fuel mapping. Pull the intake duct off of the turbo and see if the impellor will spin freely by turning it with your finger. Do you have boost pressure on the dash gauge?

General rules of thumb: Low speed engine on acceleration with smoke in the exhaust plume = worn piston rings High speed engine accelerating (spooled up turbo) with smoke = oil form turbo bearing and/or piston rings Engine on over run (coasting down, foot off the gas) with smoke = oil from valve guides. VW/Audi make good engines with tight tolerances so none of the above should apply at 62K miles; just make sure that the oil (the right oil) and oil filter are changed regularly.

Hi, I have a 2.0HDI Expert which was doing the exact same thing as yours, blowing thick black smoke, sluggish and loss of power on gradients, a hissing sound and surging. I replaced the air flow meter but that didn't help. I was told to replace the turbo but a turbo expoert told me not to as it would blow white smoke if it was faulty. I was then told to replace the injectors but a diagnostic test showed them to be functioning fine. I was then told to look at the intercooler which had thick sludge at the lower left pipe. I replaced it today - Sunday 12th July and it is now driving like a new van. It now pulls me up gradients with ease in 4th and 5th instead of having to drop gear to get to the top. I got a replacement from Euro Car Parts for £147 inc VAT. To tell if this is your problem, look through the gaps in the lower section of the bumper at what looks like the radiator and look for sludge over the inside of the bumper and all over the pipe where it joins the back of the radiator (intercooler). Also open the bonnet and look down behind the grille for the same sludge. Hope this sorts it for you. Barry, Newtownards, Northern Ireland.
