Your car seems to be getting too much fuel, is it computer controlled?

Either the a/c is very dirty or the filter is falling apart.............

the fuel filter is located right on top of engine. there is a big aluminum cylander with a black cap on it, you have to unscrew the cap to remove filter.

Most common problem is a dirty/clogged fuel filter restricting a good flow of fuel to the engine. Otherwise, the carburetor needs adjustment. Or, if the engine is blowing black smoke before it dies, check the spark plug and the air filter, or a too rich mixture from the carburetor.

If you have black smoke coming out it would be because you have bad timings, i have a buddy who had that happen to his jeep and we replaced the spark plugs and air filter and fixed the timing and it solved the problem, but wen you blow black smoke its because of bad timing it happens with diesels to.

Blowing black smoke is indicative of an oil leak in the engine.

The fuel filter is located under the car in the rear, right in front of the left rear tire I believe. should have a black plastic cover over it. Remove the plastic cover to gain access to the fuel filter. the filter should have 4 hoses going into it, 3 of which have clamps. If the filter has never been replaced before it will have the factory clamp style ones, and if it has been replaced, it should have the screw style clamp. Good idea to clamp off the fuel lines before removing the hose clamps so you dont get soaked in fuel. Remove the hose clamps and hoses off the fuel filter and remove the filter from the black plastic clamp. Install in reverse order.

I am not sure it is a problem. The evidence for black holes is quite strong.I am not sure it is a problem. The evidence for black holes is quite strong.I am not sure it is a problem.

You can stop your 7.3L from blowing black smoke by verifying that it is burning fuel cleanly and make sure the fuel mix is not too rich. You can also verify that it is not burning any oil.

The part that is visible (round black part) is the oil filter cartridge. Remove the cartridge and replace the paper filter and BOTH o-rings.

loss of power after,or with black smoke , indicates the turbo has quit.

Black smoke is a symptom of an overly rich fuel/air mixture.

Not running on all cylinders - bad spark plug? bad coil? Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem

I had the same Problem, blowing black smoke and getting only about 6 mpg. try the fuel regulator valve.Now i get 14 mpg, and no smoke whatsoever.

This is most likely to be caused by the screen backlight not working - you need to get the backlight or inverter replaced.

resistor needs to be replaced it is under the glove box by the cabin filter remove the black round box you will see it

There are 2 different types of smoke,white or black/purple-ish. White smoke indicates a problem with the water. Black/purple-ish indicates an oil problem. In your case with white smoke check the water and on rare occasions changing the air filter helps too.

Taking into consideration that I have spent a lot of time and effort on my TD4 it could be the crankcase vent filter that needs to be replaced or a leak in the intercooler pipes, mine had the same problem and now eventually the Turbo died a sudden death after 370000 km !

If you open the glove Box and look in there is a black door and behind that is the cabin air filter. Owners manual. If you will purchase a Purolator Cabin filter, it will come with complete instructions. At the back of the glove box is a door to access the cabin air filter slot. You unload the first filter, then reach in and slide the second one over so you can remove it.
