Black smoke means your not getting enough air to burn the fuel that is being injected or the timing is wrong. Is there a lack of power? It could be many things such as a dirty air filter, failing (or failed) turbo, internally plugged intercooler (usually oil/sludge), leaking intake hoses, improper injection timing, stuck wastegate, leaking exhaust to name a few.

Also welcome to the forums! Please add your vehicle to your signature since that makes it easier for all of us to help, details such as year/model/engine/transmission help immensely

There is no lack of power it has been regularly serviced it is a bit heavy on diesel but it does do a lot of traffic work around south east London I'll have it checked out and report back

I should also add that it can smoke badly if your in too high a gear for your speed (aka lugging it), my truck rolls coal if you dont get the revs up (therefor boost) then it clears up fine.........mostly.

lugging it no ! this happens during accelaration and upto 70mph on the motorway in fact it seems to be pretty persistent...another thing I have noticed that after it has been parked on a down slope (nose down) that when started it blows blue smoke from the exhaust, This clears as you drive away ? but parked on the flat or with the rear lower no blue smoke ?

Now that is weird, sounds like oil is pooling somewhere in the intake only to get sucked up and burned when started. How is the oil consumption? A quart in less than a 1000 miles is what I would call not that great although Ford said a quart in 750 was ok for my truck LOL.
