    I get black smoke come out of the exhaust when i put my foot down.It's very embarrassing when your idle and then take off gently.you leave a big cloud of black smoke.

    I have a x-type 2.0diesal se dci 2005.

    I have put in the tank a bottle of diesal cleaner. A lot of black smoke is coming out.The tank is empty now ,i have just filled up again to see whether it will be any better.

    I dont know either if this causes the car to so called '****' when driving along without accelerating, if you know what i mean.



    I,m getting different opinions from different people as to the cause of this problem,ie filter,oil need changing



    Let me know what you think

    Best Regards

    nissan x-trail emits a lot of black smoke when exelerating what could be the problem?

    Jaguar 2.0 diesel, 2005, 94,000 km. grey / black smoke on hard acceleration. Can obscure car behind it is so bad.

    Just bought a a 55 plate x type 2.0 D. Black smoke on heavy acceleration, sometimes worse than others, ie. gentle acceleration less or no smoke. No power loss and acceleration fine. When travelling at constant speed or idling no smoke is apparent. Breeze/ sucking noise apparent just before smoke when accelerating and felt a current of air when I lifted the bonnet, above the cam belt. Any ideas?

    I have the simuler problem but the smoke that's emited from the exhaust is white, only when I accelerate, I have been told that is the turbo blowing all the **** out? should a turbo have **** in it ?

    I was told by a Jag mechanic (i have an o4 X-type estate 2.0D) that Jag knew about this problem about 3 years ago, but they have never allowed it to become a 'fix'. Jag dealers just say it is 'rubbish coming out of the exhaust' - yeah. like that happens on other quality cars..not. My hose has finally split which resulted in some very angry people behind me for the next 20 miles as I couldn't get above 55 and the smoke was worse than a 1970's Transit. I will let you know if the new hose fixes everything.

This is almost certainly a split hose - mine was the large hose coming out of the bottom of the EGR valve.

Speaking to a parts guy at my local Jaguar dealer, he said that the new part is uprated as Jaguar are aware that this is a problem.

The split allows more air in and results in the ECU changing the mixture and over fuelling - Black smoke is an indication of un-burnt Diesel. As well as the black smoke you may also notice a whistle/whine or sucking noise when you accelerate and a lack of power / lumpiness at around 2000rpm.

Hope that helps!

Check the EGR vale, examine the hose from the intercooler to the manifold for splitting, the ERG (Exhaust Gas valve) collects unburnt fuel, cools it and via the intercooler, sends it back the fuel tank, if the ERG is not working it will blow the unburnt full through the exhaust, Splits in the hole draws air in and causes the same problem.

Try millers diesel additive, available from Halfords for around £12 for 500ml. I have a 2004 2.0d sport xtype. It was blowing out white or grey smoke when the turbo kicked in. I took it to a specialist who told me get the injectors ultrasonically cleaned. But try millers at 4 times the recommended dose. It worked wonders. There is no smoke at all any more. ( After a blast down the M4 ). Black smoke will mean probably a split hose somewhere. Try it. £12 is nothing..

Black smoke from x5


Black smoke is a sign of engine overload, a restricted air supply, or a malfunctioning injector. For some reason, excess unburned fuel is being blown out of the exhaust.

It could be doing its job, sounds like what you put in tank is problem. Oil change would not cause that. I would not worry unless it keeps going after fuels runs down.

WHY DOES MY 1996 GALANT BLOW OUT A HUGE CLOUD OF SMOKE WHEN I START IT THEN GOES AWAY IM USING A TON OF OIL


Hi Joseph, I'm glad to help!

When engine get a lot of miles on them the seals get hard and bridle and allows oil you slip by and it goes out the exhaust in at cloud of smoke. Here's a way to see if it is you "Valve Seals". When your driving it usually clears up and you have no smoke. Here's what you need to do after driving the car and it has cleared up, pull into a parking lot and let it sit and idle for 3 minutes. If a cloud of smoke comes out of the tailpipe when you take off, then you have bad "Valve Seals" and they will need to be replaced. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Joseph.

Jaguar x type...started the car 2day when i put my foot on the accelerator there was no speed...i can put my foot all the way down and no speed its got no acceleration...its driving but slow...


if there is also black smoke coming out the exhaust - and the problem is intermittent - then it's the EGR valve - it sticks open - will need replacing.... Happened to mine this morning and this is what the Jaguar Assistance guy said. Mine is a 2006 2 litre X-type.

I have Hyndia Tucson 2006 Deisel. I have a problem in it. This problem is smoke heavily (Black) and there is no intention of any force during press the accelerator.


mean there might be fuel leaking into the engine or the air to deisel ratio is and not atomised correctly. the main causes are normally is the air filter that isnt allowing air into the engine. Fuel filter can also be at fault not allowing enough fuel in or allowing to much in the engine sometimes. This causes the chamber to burn it out. Fuel injector if fualty could allow to much fuel or not enough. My personal suggestion would be to run fuel injector cleaner first, then change the air filter. If that doesn't fix it change the fuel filter. I would go the cheapest route first. Is is prolly something simple

BLACK SMOKE COMING OUT OF THE EXHAUST AND NO POWER WHEN I PUT ME FOOT DOWN, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM AND HOW MUCH WOULD IT COST? THANKS MARK


Generall black smoke indicated the burning of oil. This is due to oil slipping by the rings. If the rings are allowing oild to slip by then you will have poor compression which translates into no power when you put your foot down. IF the rings are bad you are looking at a rebuild. Probably cheaper to buy a replacement engine from a junkyard. The definitive test is to have a compression test performed

My renault clio uses a lot of oil, I have had the oil filters replaced but the problem still remains


do you leave an oil patch when you park? if not then you wil notice when you put your foot down that a noticable cloud of smoke is expelled from the exhaust. this indicates that one or more of your oil seals is going/gone. the more you drive it the worse it gets im afraid. best test is to listen to the engine whilst running it and see if there are any tapping noises or knocking noises as this is a newish car and shouldnt have many probs?

Black smoke when accelerating and seems to be just underpowered


Have you changed the crancase breather situated at the rear of the engine by the air filter, cost is about £30 from Landrover, should be changed every 12000 miles, often lasts 60000 miles and then it shows a problem. If not changed the crancase will pressurise and you will get oil coming out of the engine all over the place and clouds of soke from exhaust.
