Power loss and/or black smoke? Diagnostic consultation on a Range Rover Sport (2010 – 70,384 miles)

⚠️ Running issues? Lack of power or black smoke issues?

❗ NO CLEAN on this booking due to the diagnostic pre-work identifying an issue.

🚗 Here we have a Range Rover Sport HSE 3.0 TDV6 (2010 – 70,384 miles) originally booked in for diagnostics and Engine Carbon Clean after the owner was reporting lack of power on acceleration and black smoke.

🔎 Initial inspection found little of note in the engine bay with no obvious split pipes we could see or hear.

💻 Initial diagnostics showed lots of codes (historic and current). The engine section codes were related to
– MAP sensor correlation
– MAF sensor air flow too high
– Turbo pressure low

ℹ️ This would indicate a potential leak in the system which would explain the lack of power and black smoke. The obvious pipes appeared to be visibly intact so this would indicate maybe a small split in a pipe which is not visible/audible or a potential cracked plastic manifold (something we have seen previously).

No point in cleaning this one yet as a leak in the system is dangerous and won’t fix the issue.

With the owner briefed on a course of action we will return to this one another day once the issue has been resolved.
