Hi all. I've got a 2010 1.5 dci ntec. Done 80k, the last few days I've noticed that when I pull away in any gear I get a lot of black smoke, I mean a lot of black smoke from the exhaust. 
I know the qashqai diesel is noisy and smokey in the cold, but it's not cold at the mo and I t's up to date with services and not burning any oil.

I'm at a loss as this has only just started happening 

Any help would be helpful before no doubt a trip to the garage!!

I'm no expert but I suggest the injectors need a clean. Try Fortes diesel injector cleaner, just add it to your fuel it does work I've used it on several cars.

Do you do a lot of short journeys?

Dpf filter could be in regen...that tends to chuff out black smoke...

Just make sure you use the forte as per instructions. Some people use it with a small amount of diesel and don't get the desired results. The more fuel in the tank the longer the additive has to work.
