What color is the smoke?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It's black my friend, very black, leaving a lot more sooty deposits on the bodywork than usual

Ok the problem is the fuel injectors are leaking down and causing this issue and need to be replaced very common on this vehicle. The injectors fail allowing to much fuel into the cylinders . This is what needs to be checked next . Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.

Ok then they were damaged during the install or the turbo is bad. Need to check the turbo next and the injector install. These are the next steps. Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated. Most likely the turbo is bad.
