Question about 2003 Renault 181
Blowing black smoke when you rev it???
It's very likely a valve stem seal that has split. This will allow oil into the cylinder from the crank gallery.
Off with it's head! I'm afraid.
The only other thing it can be is overfueling - but then it will be sputtering and lagging on acceleration.
You can check which cylinder is affected by removing the plugs and looking for the oily one. They will all need replacing really as it's false economy to do just 1. The seals are cheap. I would get a new cambelt fitted at the same time - as it has to come off anyway.
(If this leads to a solution, please take the time to rate as Fixya! - Thank you)

Clio1,5 dci 2002
pregledana je pumpa - ispravna, pregledane su dize - ispravne
Auto jednostavno neće upaliti a ugasio se na parkiralištu kad je radio u leru.
na kompjuteru ne pokazuje grešku !

The first thing to do is check you air filter start with the simple things first.
Air filters are the first thing to block up before you go out and buy one check it first you can run the car down the road without it to see if it has stops smokong also check the pipes are free from debris. You must have a filter in dont be tempted to run the car without one you could damage your engine. Next fuel filters again these should be change at service intavals. Im sure if you do this first it will solve your pronlem. If it is still smoking moniter your oil to see if it is using oil if it is this could be an expensive profesional repair. If no oil is been used you might have contaminated fuel, you could try running it down to empty and filling up but this might not work, the best way is to drain out the tank and water traps or filters. Hope ths helps.
