SOURCE: mazda 6 diesel wont start
Have you run the car without fuel? There must not be any air in the fuel line... Blead the fuel line of air and try to start it. There should be bleader screws under the hood....

You can clear these if less than 60% blocked by giving the car a good blast on the motorway going through the revs. If your car is on limp mode you do need to replace the particulate filter as the blockage is too much to regenerate. I have found a company that does these very cheap and are technicly brilliant i had many questions and they seemed to answer correctly with confidence. They supplied the part to me for £500, i have checked from this for the automotive solutions guys that did it for £450 but couldnt find them which is why i went with these. The company is Onlineautomotive.co.uk and i spoke to someone Called Darrell. There number is anyone wants it is 0844 880 4149 he did giv me a direct number but im sure he wouldnt want me to list that on here as its his work mobile.

Mazda say that if your Mazda 6 consumues less than a litre every 900 miles then it within tolerance.
However these cars have a complicated induction mechanism controld by lots of diffrent vacume pots that are inturn controlled by servos, when any one of these becomes faulty the pressure balance between the exhaust side of the turbo and the inlet side becomes inbalanced, resulting in oil being forced through the turbos bearings. Its that simple lol!
The first thing I would check would be the swirl control valve, In the inlet manifold, This gets fouled up by the exhaust gases getting recycled by the egr valve(exhaust gas recycler)
Sooty deposits mix with oil coming from your turbo and jam it closed restricting the amount of air into the engine, and reducing power as well as creating black smoke from your exhaust.
So my advice would be to get your egr valve proffetionally blanked off, and have your induction system checked over.
Hope this helps as I am sure this is a very common problem!
