PS:The Oil dripping from turbo was from the air charge flow toward inlet manifold there was a silencer/filter after turbo & before inlet manifold, it was full with oil.

and now way to get a code reader to perform diagnostic ?

did you pull spark plugs and check them

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I was the Technical Officer of Kok Tong Construction Engineeering Pte. Ltd. Our Company have many Nissan Navara single deck, they always came back for washing silencer of exhaust pipe when found emitting black smoke. After wash it will be OK.
But for these one special case due to washed many times but still the same problem the black smoke continue emitting after wash Exhaust Silencer.
