Question about 2006 Peugeot 604
Please could someone help. we have a peugeot van and when we drive it down the road there is thick black smoke from the tail pipe. The van also feels like it's surging. The van is at a local garage and they are stumped with it. Things that have been checked are
air box to turbo-checked
it only smokes when the turbo comes in
Hi, I have a 2.0HDI Expert which was doing the exact same thing as yours, blowing thick black smoke, sluggish and loss of power on gradients, a hissing sound and surging. I replaced the air flow meter but that didn't help. I was told to replace the turbo but a turbo expoert told me not to as it would blow white smoke if it was faulty. I was then told to replace the injectors but a diagnostic test showed them to be functioning fine. I was then told to look at the intercooler which had thick sludge at the lower left pipe. I replaced it today - Sunday 12th July and it is now driving like a new van. It now pulls me up gradients with ease in 4th and 5th instead of having to drop gear to get to the top. I got a replacement from Euro Car Parts for £147 inc VAT. To tell if this is your problem, look through the gaps in the lower section of the bumper at what looks like the radiator and look for sludge over the inside of the bumper and all over the pipe where it joins the back of the radiator (intercooler). Also open the bonnet and look down behind the grille for the same sludge. Hope this sorts it for you. Barry, Newtownards, Northern Ireland.

If you get surging, it's usually a problem with the injectors......
I have/had the same problem, lots of black smoke and the Peugeot garage couldn't find a fault, new EGR valve, I've been quoted £700 for reconditioned pump and injectors.
Took it to a garage in High Wycombe called PFT Partnership that have the state of the art diagnostics machine, everything fuel wish was ok BUT he heard hissing from the Intercooler and low and be hold there was a large crack in it.....£450 (Including fitting and diagnostics)later and the old van is running fine......fingers crossed......

There is a good chance you have a hole in your front rad not the one that holds the water the one that runs iar to your turbo sorry mind gone blank can not think what its called but if you rev your engine tou will hear a blowing noise at the front end don,t try repair it they are about £70
