I have a vw transporter van 2004 2.5tdi tdi130, it was running fine then suddenly lost power when under load hill etc, I changed the fuel and air filters and put some fuel cleaner through it, but when its running in neutral (gear) it will rev up but starts to black smoke at approx, 3000rpm any ideas?

Hi there,

Thank you for the donation,

The black smoke is normally a sign of excessive fuel, I would be suspecting a faulty fuel injector, I would get them all serviced first.
