Great engines/trucks!! This is a sign of fouling internally. Try some diesel injector cleaner with a few tanks of fuel and it will probably clear right up. If there are no performance issues, this shouldn't be anything major at all. Look up BG and have some shipped. This is probably some of the best stuff. If this can not be found, any good name brand will work. Just make sure it IS for diesels. Let me know if you need anything else.

I got a tata 407 turbo but the performance is poor it also smokes black and the fuel is black can some please help


Best I can tell this is a diesel truck? I know diesel, but
depending on age could be injectors, possibly Diesel injection pump hopefully not. The fuel is black? Someone is putting old engine lubricating oil in the fuel tank. It will increase the problem of black smoke. It may also have a bad smell because of the engine oil. If the turbo is not spinning properly (high pitched whine) the bearings may be bad and it's not getting enough air into the engine. This would also explain the smoke problem. Take it to a Diesel specialist!

What can the fault be if there comes a black smoke out of the exhaust of your 2008 1.4tdci ford ikon


Hi, depends what colour black smoke, is it bluey black, grey black, whitey black, You may have to take it to a Diesel fuel shop, It may be the timing on the engine or the injector pump, (the pump may need to be timed to the engine, also the Injector pump also may need calibrating.) To calibrate pump you need to take it to a Diesel Fuel Workshop. Due to wear and conditions the injectore nozzles, injector pump, timing and performance of the engine will change over time.

Hi ,, i have a 4 litre mazda t4000 ,, its a horse truck ... it blows a fair bit of black smoke when going up hills and some white smoke when i start it up ... should i worry ... thanks


The black smoke is unburnt diesel fuel- lift your foot. When I was learning to drive diesel trucks (many years ago, in one of these trucks) I was taught that when going up hill under load, I should lift off the accelerator until it just starts to die off, then give it a little bit just to hold revs. No more black smoke.

When you start it, do you let the glow plugs heat for long enough? (Does it have them? I can't remember).

Jag X TYPE Diesel Black smoke coming from exhaust on acceleration


i had this problem and thought the fuel filter oil filter needed replacing so i have just had a service done but problem is still there but not as bad. been told it could be the AGR valve or a split pipe going to it which recuirculates unused fuel back to burn again. therefore unspent fuel is coming out of the exhaust causing the black smoke. i am still looking for the answer aswell, hope this helps.
