Nissan Navara: Smoke from engine

Asked by Brian

My Nissan Navara D22 turbo, which has done 94,000 km, has started to blow out more black smoke than it used to. I was thinking of an engine rebuild, as I don't want to purchase a new vehicle. What are your thoughts on it?

It's not necessarily a problem that might require an engine rebuild to fix. When diesels blow a lot of smoke, it's usually because they're getting too much fuel. Take it to a diesel mechanic and have him check it before you go to the extreme of rebuilding the engine.
