Engines / Re: Black smoke from TS3
« on: June 20, 2022, 08:09:38 PM »

I have a TS3 in an old dumper too.

I can't help you with your question, aside to say that it sounds like it's over-fuelling (as others have also said...).

Please can I ask you a question about yours?

Mine starts first touch but when it does so, it often goes to immediately to a peak of very high revs before rapidly dropping to tick-over.

Does yours do anything similar?

Best wishes,


Engines / TS3 engine revs very high on startup

Hello Everyone,

I have a good ol' TS3 in a dumper; it's fully serviced and runs well.

The only issue that I have is that when the engine is cool (not cold) or warm (not hot) it revs very high momentarily on start-up, before dropping to its normal idle.

When the engine is cold or hot, it starts as you'd expect and idles immediately.

Of course, no one likes revving old diesels hard, especially from start-up and without load...

Any ideas about what's causing it and how I can stop it from happening?

All advice is much appreciated, thanks in advance and best wishes,
