Hi,
I have a 1996 1HZ - 145,000 kms - on a long trip recently a mate of mine
who was following remarked that every couple of days the exhaust would emit a huge cloud of black smoke and then go back to normal.
Inside the car nothing unusual was noticeable and once I did actually see the cloud and it was large enough to obscure following traffic momentarily. Anyone have any ideas what might be the cause.
I have since had the injector pump timing checked and it was found to quite far out - 75 kw on the dyno as oppoed to 93 now. A small drip ws also found inside the pump and fixed. No long trip since so nothing to refer back to.
Would appreciate your comments,

regards,

Martin.

Any idea if it is common for the injector pump to be out of adjustment on a 100 000 plus 1HZ?
