Default Smoking diesel 2.0

Hi All

I have a 2004 X-Type 2.0d, with 166,000 on the clock, it drives ok, but has started smoking all the time, light smoke when driving normally and sometimes a slight missfire, a little black smoke when accelerating sometimes or when on a gradient.
The diagnostic plug in at the garage has said twice that there is nothing wrong, the smoking stops if I add fuel cleaner to the tank when I fill up.
Anyone had this or have any ideas?
Many Thanks.

I've moved your question from General Tech Help to X-Type forum. We don't have too many members with diesels but this is where you'll find them.

Smoking is first condition, next is usually blinking glow plug.

Thank you, that hasn't started yet, but I will look out for it, would a faulty glow plug show up on a diagnostic check do you think?
Many Thanks for your time.

Kind regards

No, read the link and the "Mr. MUSCLE" fix for both events.
