View Full Version : Black smoke puff

My problem on the constant smoke was solved by reattaching the Turbo to Intercooler hose. I found that it was leaking when I went to pressure test the resonator.
Ok. So it runs good,turbo sounds good. When you crank the engine it will smoke some. Light color smoke. Then every time I pull off from a stop sign it will puff some black smoke, but clear up quickly. Idle for a while and take off little puff of black smoke with a little hesitation. If this is normal for a 2004 158. 2500 t1N I can live with it.
Can the fuel filter cause this effect?

I doubt that a clogged fuel filter would cause the black smoke but a clogged air filter will.that would be the first thing I would check.jb.
