Mondeo TDCi jerky

My Mondeo TDCi seems to accelerate OK through all gears, but on the M25 today when holding steady revs between 2000-3000 it felt jerky, as if it was holding back. It also seemed to be chucking out lots of black smoke. It has always smoked on acceleration but seemed to smoking for the whole time.

Sounds like injector problems.
