Some were concerned because of the clouds of black smoke my truck was belching! My mechanic originally proposed rebuilding the motor to clean out the carbon. After further research we decided to check out the diesel injectors first. While I was in Texas, I left the truck with the mechanic to get the injectors and pump checked and cleaned, and nozzles replaced. After getting my truck back it has increased power and doesn't have the big trail of "mosquito screen" (smoke) trailing it. What a wonderful answer to prayer. Someone even gave the money to pay for it while I was in Texas. It ended up being returned with a steering problem, so it was returned to a mechanic to install a power steering system, which should make it much more enjoyable to drive, than the manual steering it had previously.
