    Icon5 306 d-turbo smoke

    I have 1997 306 d-turbo about 115,000 miles on the clock
    starts and runs very well and accelerates very good
    but the first time i "floor-it" i leave quite a cloud of dark smoke behind me after that its seems ok (no smoke) for the rest of the day
    but same again the next day
    it`s mainly urban driving 15/25 miles a day mostly 0/35 mph sometimes upto 40/50 mph for short times
    oil consuption is very very low (changed every 7 or 8 thousand miles) never needed to top up
    any ideas ???
    thanks barrie

    I'd have said valve stem oil seals, but i'm not so sure. Fuel pump need setting up?

    Sounds normal to me, if it is only when you "floor it". If the car is driven without any gusto for most of the day the particulates tend to build up on the turbo. When you do give it a bit they tend to be blown out or burnt off. You will find most diesel turbos do it. Unless they are thrashed constantly or never driven with gusto.
