    All depends on what you mean my excessive. On wide open throttle most diesel engines will leave behind a cloud of smoke.

    But if something is wrong the list of possible cause could be quite long; MAF failure, Injectors worn, Turbo failure, EGR clogged etc...

    How many miles has your car done?
