Soot is caused by a few things in gas appliances. Propane even more so. Lack of combustion air is usually the culprit. In propane fired equipment orifice alignment, high pressure or the wrong burner orifice can cause yellow flames the result in soot build up. You need to find the culprit. Best to have a service tech check it out and clean it. when you know what to look for it can be easily fixed.

Soot coming out of flu

Hi there.
Soot coming out of the flue indicates poor flame quality and probably carbon or soot build up on fire tubes.
Have a technician check the gas pressure and the fire tubes for verification and cleaning if needed.

How to remove erg valve jammed in the inlet manifold on Renault Espace 1.9dci 2005

The EGR is a tight fit in the manifold when new and clean. Add 1000's of miles of carbon/soot build up on it and there is your problem. A couple of solutions, (a) normally, working it by turning and moving it fore and back, bit by bit it will come out. (b) a good dose of a cleaner such as Wynn Diesel Power 3 (this contains an additive that lowers the burning temp of soot) and a long, high engine speed trip will remove a good bit of the soot build up, then back to plan (a) Slowly, slowly, catch the monkey..... It's frustrating, but it will come out, eventually!

Teledyne Laars EPC-400 lights about 2% of the time I turn it on.

You may want to pull your pilot assembly out and clean it. If you have one. Some of these had a problem with soot building up on the pilot and that would cause the ignition spark to flow threw the soot ball that would build and you would hear a buzz rather than a spark. So no spark no ignition. After it tries a number of times the soot will move enough to let it light, but will build more soot and make it worse for the next time. If this is the problem this will reoccur and you can just set yourself to clean it now and again or the replacement has been improved to allow mor air to keep it from sooting. I hope this helps, good luck.
