Exhaust Smoke

Getting considerable black exhaust smoke from 156 Sportwagon - 2.4 JTD Veloce under acceleration. Have tried blowing out by increasing revs but doesn't seem to make much difference.

Re: Exhaust Smoke

Welcome to the forum.

Try checking for a split in the boost pipes. If there is a split, it won't be holding the pressure and the mix of fuel/air will be off resulting in overfuelling and lots of smoke. Check the one going into the inlet manifold at the right hand side of the engine at the top, near the back, it'll disappear into the wing to the intercooler. They quite often split causing excessive smoke. Could also check the one going to the turbo if that one's alright. Then it'll be a matter of checking MAF(air flow meter), EGR valve(exhaust gas re-circulation).
