Exclamation black sooth and smoke

i have a problem with my volvo md2030. it starts ok but off load it revs only up to 2000rpm and very thick black smoke comes out. when on load it only goes up to 1500rpm and again thick black smoke comes out from the exhaust. it is really worrying me. the engine sounds ok. can someone provide some ideas of what could be the problem?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

diesel problem

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.
