No thats quite normal its just some unburnt fuel being passed as mixture is enriched on accelerating if it continues after you ease up there could be a problem

Your duplicate question did not say it was a diesel.
Usually black smoke on a diesel is dirty injectors or the engine temp not reaching normal range.

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).

Black smoke when accelerating


Is it a diesel? Have noticed when following Jags that they all seem to smoke when hard accelerated. If not oil is burning in cylinders, bore wear or valves letting oil into combustion chamber,Get a compression check done.

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.

How much should my Ford ranger 2.5td be smoking,is it normal for diesel engens to smoke.


Sometimes diesel engines will put out black smoke under extreme acceleration. Other than that, they shouldn't smoke. Black is excess fuel, White smoke is water and bluish is oil. White smoke on a cool morning is not necessarily a sign of a problem unless it happens every time you start it through a warm day. Hope this helps.

Welcome to the world of diesels....

Black smoke is produced when too much fuel is injected into the cyl. There could be several issues here, but I would start with running a diagnostic on your O2 sensors and MAS/MAP sensors.

I hope this helps
