FORD TRANSIT CONNECT TDDI 75 BHP VAN.LOSING POWER ON HILLS AND BLACK SMOKE FROM EXHAUST,HAVE REPLACED MAP SENSOR AND ALL FILTERS NO DIFFERENCE,HELP PLEASE
2003 Ford transit connect 1753
Ford dealership replaced map sensor and all filters, pump checked out fine. Still struggles up hills and emits black smoke under hard acceleration
I think my first port of call would be to clean out or renew the EGR valve. If this sticks open then the black smoke and loss of power would be apparent.
Let me know how you get on or what you think and we'll take it from there.
Very best regards
