No power black smoke 2001 6.6 duramax


There are many reasons for black smoke. This color indicates incomplete combustion of the diesel fuel. Possible injector or injector timing problem would be the first thing to look at. Other causes can be a defective turbo... air restriction... engine running too cold... internal issues to name a few

1992 Peterbilt 379 feels sluggish pulling load up hill and is blowing black smoke


have a turbo boost pressure test done under load on a chassis dyno
under load the boost should be right up
check for leaks in the intercooler hose fittings or cracks in the intercooler
black smoke under load indicates a faulty turbo or turbo air leaks.

Twin turbo 80 horse power deutz Diesel engine blows black smoke under load


Diesel engines smoke when under a heavy load. Unlike a gas engines, a diesel engine uses fuel that is more like an oil.Smoking is a good indication the fuel is not completly burning because of loaded engine spee. White smoke indicates the fuel is not ignitingefficiently. Truck, boats, tanks abd anything else using diesel fuel will smoke when it gets more fuel than it can use.. Easing up on the throttle will lessen the smoke but not eliminate.. Of coarse if the demand is lessened by applying less loadyhe fuel consumption drops.Not to worry as long as the smoke doesn't attract the EPA.

Why does my 2001 chevy duramax smoke when it idles


This happens when the vacuum in the manifold is at maximum and the air is drawn down past the valve stems into the combustion chamber. IT takes oil with it and so when you increase the RPM's ( moving off at lights)the burnt oil in the exhaust is expelled as a cloud of smoke . The fix here is to replace the valve stem seals that have gone hard/cracked and are no longer sealing on the valve stems

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).

2004 duramax black smoke and sputtering when


Black smoke means "fuel not being combusted" or "runnig rich". I have no doubt you have gasoline. Your spark may not be burning the gas. Is there a check eng lite? If EGR was sticking, you would probably get a check engine light for this. If your truck has a Vortec design, I would find out if you need a new "spider". What is your mileage? Are you due for a tune up? What spark plugs are you using? Vortec? "Not all the time" sounds like intermittent. When was the last time you changed the fuel filter? Can't hurt to change this. This would be the actaul starting point for me. I would change the fuel filter which is under the driver under the chasis. You will need a 16MM and a 20MM. USE ONLY LINE WRENCHES. You may need a fuel line disconnect kit too depending on your model. Notice it only happens on acceleration? that is when you are forcing even more fuel thru the system, but not enough of a fuel stream make cause sputtering and when the fuel comes thru too rich that would be the black smoke. It sounds like you have the 2 extremes. is there afuel regulator on your vehicle? If so, you may need to change that too. Good luck.
