Re: Alfa 147 Jtd M-jet 16v - No acceleration/Black smoke on hills
Black smoke could be water in fuel, turbo bearing seals gone, wornout valve stem seals, EGR stuck open or piston rings. The loss of power though could be turbo problem, split hose, EGR stuck open or water in fuel.
From those there are 3 main possibilities tht you could look at quickly, water in fuel (drain the filter bowl), Split hose(check your hoses) and EGR, take it off and clean it out.
Or the worst has happend and the belts slipped a tooth.
