Default Black Smoke - EGR? - 12th August 2017, 09:58 AM

Hi, I (well my son) has a 2006 One Diesel 1.4 with the Toyota 1.4 unit, which, to be fair at almost 110k goes really well. I was following behind him recently and noticed under hard acceleration there was (a lot) of Black soot coming from the exhaust. I suspect, from other diesel cars I have owned, that this is most likely a blocked EGR valve which could do with a good clean? Any ideas on this and where the EGR is on this particular engine. Thanks.
