Black smoke is too much fuel,could be leaking injectors or injectors that are popping off too early?
Or a dirty air filter.

Any bubbles in the rad when running?
Does the upper rad hose get hard as soon as you start a cold engine?If so then likely a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head.

Could also be incomplete combustion if it only does it cold and be caused by non working glow plugs?

Non working glow plugs in some cylinders along with pissing injectors is a good bet.

If you have no problems with the cooling system, you could try to adjust your IP timing. I'd venture a guess to say that it needs a complete rebuild.
