Navara D40 Losing power under load with black smoke - ideas?

Unread post by petef85 » January 24th, 2016, 2:12 pm

Hi i bought a Nissan Navara 2009 D40 at the end of last year and have a few problems with it recently.
There is a loss of power under load, especially when going up hills, with black smoke as this happens.
Also the cruise control doesnt work at all.
Just wondering if these could be linked in any way, all that I have done since i have owned the ute is have the battery changed.
This is my first ute/diesel so I have very little idea what is happening and am looking for help if possible.


Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Pete

Hi Pete
Loss of power with black smoke sounds like a lack of boost.
It might be an idea to have a look at all the vacuum lines going to the turbo.
Hope this helps
