Dark smoke and do not acelerate but the motor work ,Kia sorento 2007 diesel


Dark grey/black smoke is excess fuel/ poor combustion. Get a garage to check the turbo function but you don't say how many miles its done so it may need an engine service including things like the emissions control valves etc.

Why is my Kia sorento starting to blow out black smoke.? I have had no loss of power


Black smoke means you have too much diesel in the mix that is being ignited. This can be because either too little air is getting in or too much fuel is going in. First step (easy and cheap) is replace the air filter. If there's still smoke check the erg valve is clean and moves easy. If it's still there after that then check the common rail injectors for leakage.

I just purchased a used kia and it started smoking


if this is a diesel kia then smoking is not a very bad sign. diesels tend to smoke when the diesel injectors are clogged up. this can happen with very poor dirty diesel fuel. take the kia in to a good mechanic. not the agents or kia cause they are going to rip you off. or there is a solvent you can buy at a carparts&accessories that can unclog. just ask for assistance. a diesel starts smoking when the diesel injectors are clogging up. good luck.
