I know it's an age old topic but I have a 2006 TDCI 130bhp and I'm just about to rip my hair out or at least set fire to the Mondy'', I've changed the air filter, oil filter put in Castrol Magnatec, fitted a new Ford EGR valve & hose and still the chuffer is smoking like a dragon with a chest complaint on acceleration, just wondered without changing the injectors if anyone has any other ideas as to the cure or whether any Ford mechanics are aware that Ford are aware of the issue and have covertly found a fix.
Thanks so kindly for looking and hoping for some useful replies.
