Hi I have just bought a 156 JTD 20VTi 2005 model

Hi I have just bought a 156 JTD 20VTi 2005 model and have noticed when eccelerating hard that is seem to be pushing out quite a bit of diesel smoke is this normal or can this be reduced in any way.

How many miles? At higher rpm's it's normal to push a bit(the quantity it's proportioned to the number of miles)...i don't know if it can be reduced....

Hi it's done 55.000 but seems to only do it spasmodically when really accelerating very hard someone else has said fairly normal as some chamber is said to fill up and only now and again it empties in one go thus giving out a cloud of soot thanks anyway I am keeping an eye on it someone else has mentioned a EGR valve as being a possible cause.
I don't know how one identifies by looking at the EGR valve if it's faulty or not perhaps someone can advise.
