Re: reno espace 2.2 black smoke

Black smoke from the exhaust denotes either an air intake or misfueling problem so obviously there is a serious problem somewhere. Modern Dci engines should run smooth and clean.

The 2.2 Dci engine has a notorious history of failing inlet manifold gaskets and aslo cracked inlet manifolds. Could also be a stcicking EGR valve fault or even leaking injectors. Personally I wouldn't put much faith in a Renault service history when it comes to the 2.2 Dci engine as neither checking the inlet nor EGR valve is part of any service schedule.
