Well first it could be your fuel filter. or fuel pump but if you can hear your pump turn on it wouldnt be that. but you should try bleeding the fuel system.

If your filter hasn't been changed recently then by all means do itand see if that helps. I change mine twice a year, spring and fall. You are probably right about the fuel pump but your best bet would be to pick up a copy of Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part #10330 first. It has an excellent diagnostic and repair section as well as testing procedures and repairs for these engines. It costs about $20 and could save you some money. Hope this helps.

1994 chev truck 6.5 turbo diesel with long hard start ,idles good and smooth,rev it up and it craps out and smokes a heavey fuel cloud, unplug optical sensor and engine runs better but still has a stumble...

There is a cold start solonoid in the injection pump on the 92&93's. this will cause a hard start, and run poorly till warms up. It does something with the presure in pump which advances it.

Do i need a turbo timer for an intercooled diesel engin..isuzu...

Yes it pays to have a Turbo timer or let it run for 3 minutes after an outing.
An Intercooler is usually fitted to turbo charged engines.It cools the air entering the engine making it denser,Thats why cars go really well on frosty mornings after they reach running temp.
Hope this helps.

Do i need to worry if i have a puff of black smoke from the exhaust when i first start my car. its black and only for a minit. also my car always smells hot like oily after even a short journey. would this...

65 thousand isn't much for a diesel engine.
I would not be too worried if it is only when you first start it up.

Diesel smells like oil at the best of times especially when it gets on your hands :) I have an old diesel engine (280,000 km never had the head off ) with no fancy turbo or anything on it. It used to blow a cloud of black smoke when I started it in winter time. It used to crank more before it started when it was cold too. The problem turned out to be 5 out of 6 of my glow plugs were broken. So it was just squirting more and more diesel into the cylinder before it generated enough heat to start. When it finally kicked all the fuel burnt at once hence the black smoke. There is a way to test your glow plugs (assuming you engine has them) with a multi meter. Or just get a mechanic to check and replace them as needed. Mine were about as complicated as changing a spark plug.

This is just my experience. I'm sure there are other reasons your can might be blowing black smoke.

Ford moneo turbo diesle s reg

there is a pipe witch runs from the diesel pump to the turbo which monitors pressure. sometimes a thin membrane in the pump goes releasing diesel straight in to the turbo especially on tick over. eventually that diesel is sucked in to the engine along with all the other gunk where it starts revving up on its own rattleing and banging. i have come across this on lucas diesel pumps before
