Hi to you all,

I have the usual problem with my 54 plate mondeo tdci in that i get a lot of black smoke when accelerating.I changed the egr valve last year which was a genuine ford valve brand new but was fitted through a friend so it is near impossible to take back to ford.
I only seem to get this problem when i accelerate in 2nd or 3rg gear and a plume of black smoke appears.

as the egr valve has been done i am wondering if the problem could be something else??

please help

Have something to contribute?

Classic EGR symptoms mate. Get your mate to blank it off see what happens then.

Not something I've ever done mate. There could be other reasons, blocked air filter, engine needs a good thrashing to blow the cobwebs out especially if its only used on stop start short journeys.

Have a look on http://www.fordmondeo.org cos I know they are slightly different on the Mondeo to the focus

Maybe just one more thing to check, simple one:
Check the tube that connects EGR valve and Intercooler. It cracks easily on all Turbodiesels and results in loss of power and black smoke.
