Seeking expert advice having had previous success on here!
Over the past couple of days, I've noticed that my exhaust is chucking out much more black smoke than is normal. Happens under acceleration, in particular when engine is under workload climbing hill whilst accelerating. Also noticed that feeling that power is down, but nothing like the huge loss of power I experienced when my EGR valve was shot
For info, back in Feb/Mar I replaced oil filter, fuel filter, air filter, MAF and EGR (the latter a new unit not reconditioned). Hopefully shouldnt therefore be any of them. Mileage only at 45k and 5yrs old.
I did have the turbo hose go over a year ago, and feels a bit like that, but then it came with a whistling sound, and dont have that now. Could it be a hose, and do they go twice in under 2 years??
