Is this a JTD?

If so it sounds like your engine is overfuelling and it is not being burnt or your turbo could be on the way out?

OIt's a GT JTD 1.9 yes?
Sorry the grammar in your posts is hard for me to understand.

Best bet would be to get it plugged into fiat ECU scans and check the readings on a run.

Check for excess Oil around the turbo?

Does the car smoke heavily when you accelerate off boost?

At what point on the rev counter does the exhaust smoke?

Also is does your dash display an ECU warning light? The car could be in limp get home mode where it chucks fuel in!
