This cold weather can play havoc with any car...Be sure you are keeping gas tank above half full. Add a bottle of "Heat" and a bottle of injector cleaner for help...Also do have your Battery and Alternator checked at your local auto parts store...this should be a free service. Please don't expose yourself to being stranded by something that is giving you valuable warning signs...Also how long since a quality oil change...another major concern in cold weather. Hope this helps.

Blows white smoke from 2003 Jetta when starting

Hi JG,

White smoke is indicative of water/moisture getting burned off.
If it only happens when starting, when the engine is cold (like first thing in the morning), it's most likely condensation that formed on the cold metal inside the exhaust system.

If you are also experiencing a loss of power or if your coolant level is dropping I'd get a compression check done. The additional symptoms could indicate a blown head gasket.

Best regards

2001 Jeep GrCh. starts, let go of gas, it stops. Battery not to

Besides the obvious: checking your alternator/charging system. If the check engine light is not on, or it comes on, and after awhile it comes off, then a couple of hours or days later it comes on again it might the crankshaft sensor. It happened to me, and it was a pain in the neck to diagnose as the check engine light had turned off and the computer wouldn't read any codes to diagnose the problem. My mechanic was trained by Mopar/Jeep, so he immediately knew what was happening.

If it is a dead or shorted battery, when the RPM's are up the vehicle will run, and you might notice a loss on power. Once the engine goes to idle and the RPM's come down the engine will die, as there is not sufficient electrical power generated by the alternator to supply the engine. A bad alternator will cause battery problems.
