Hi.
I had much the same problem as you with my 96 td ulysse . it was a faulty EGR valve which controls the the amount of recirculated exhaust gases which return to the turbo . this was stuck in the open position which caused the engine to be very smoky I got a seconhand EGR unit (very hard to fit not for the fainthearted) and my smoke problem cleared up. Maybe you should look into this
