Black smoke is from too much fuel or not enough air entering the combustion chamber as compared to white smoke which is unburned fuel.The causes are leaking injectors,restricted air intake,or injector timing too advanced.
White smoke on the other hand is caused from poor cylinder compression, late injector timing,low injector pressure or bad/contaminated fuel.
