Black smoke is an overly rich air to fuel mixture (too much fuel). Could be a very dirty air filter, bad oxygen sensor, bad fuel injector(s), bad fuel pressure regulator, or bad fuel pump. Those are the things I'd check first. HTH. -Jim


Check in over at and - there's not a lot of information on the Audi diesels in the USA yet. We're about to see many more small block turbo diesels in the near future but we're not there yet.


it might help if you know what codes were stored in the engine management computer,way too many codes and procedures to even begin to guess.
