Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
I read what you wrote. Did you have any general or direct questions that you specifically wanted me to answer? Or did you want me to explain all possiblitys that cause black smoke?
Black smoke is caused by the following;
1. Bad/old diesel fuel
2. Engine overloading
3. Low engine compression
4. Low boost pressure
5. Anything that can cause a rich fuel condition.
You said sometimes it will go away, how intermittent is the smoke?
Hi Jim, it looks like you read my initial response and logged off, did you still have questions on the issue?
Hi Jim, how are you making out?
