Can anyone diagnose this fault please, I have had a black smoke problem for a while now I tried all the cleaners and replaced the EGR valve which was showing faulty, the Lambda has been reset. It smokes bad when driving at 60mph and accelerating.
I am still to check the Turbo pipe for a leak but one suggestion I have had one is the swirls, is this a symptom of dirty or sticky swirls and if so what is the remedy, as I said earlier I have tried the usual cleaners, any suggestions please

My black smoke was two holes in a Turbo Hose, the hose is about 12" long with a diameter of about 2'' I shopped around and the price ranged from £16 to £124, I eventually got it off Amazon for £50 and it has solved the problem

Hi caretaker,I wonder, can you tell me where the pipe that had two holes in is situated,I have the exclusiv 2.2 4x4 model 2012, got black smoke coming from exhaust specially when I pull away at traffic lights, when I got home I noticed it was coming into the car when the wind was facing me, had a look under the bonnet and at the front I'm assuming is the turbo, there is black soot,just wondered if you could point me in the right direction before I have to take the car into the garage,is it, if it is a pipe, doable for me to fix,thanks for any help you may be able to give me.
