sorry lost signal yesterday. I would say not particually on high acceleration, more like continuous revs. No throttle response just tick over. Yes Black smoke only when cold. No glow plugs flash. /

Hi there thanks no worriesOk the first thing I would advise is to blank the EGR valve off as this is a common occurance on the 1.8tdci transit connect
what happens is the EGR valve sticks open causing excess exhaust gas to enter the engine this in turn chokes the engine thus you will get no throttle response which if held down would probably return at some pointBy blanking off the EGR valve you are not allowing any exhaust gas to enter the engine therefore ruling out this as part of the diagnostic
To blank the valve off you need to cut a metal plate the same shape as the gasket and slip it In-between the EGR feed pipe to inlet manifold connectionI would do this first and monitor the situation
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know
If you were satisfied with my answer /advice
