    My Jetta did the same thing.  It was a leaky valve in the engine or so I was told.  Got it fixed but the car still chugs on cold starts...

Darth Ive owned about 3 of the 95 jettas that did the same thang. the 2.slo has a plug gasket that leeks oil on to the top of the pistons and when it sits over night the oil builds up. thus in the morning when you start it it blows smoke. i changed mine and it quit doing it than i swaped it for a VR6
hope this helped you out.

If it's the org. engine it will has over 150,000 miles on it.
It's normal to has the valve stem seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the seals.

It land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.

The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner.
This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.

The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional service the head.

Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.

How to find a shortage on a vw jetta 2002

If you live where it is cold, your battery may need to be replaced . They will discharge with the cold during the night. Try changing the battery or checking your curent one. Install a known good battery that you know is fully charged, start the car and then turn it off leaving it for the night. If it does not start in the morning then you know it is not the battery. More than likely the alternator or regulator.

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

96 jetta gl hard to start

Check the anti freeze level. It is to low the coolant sensor (not the temp. gauge sensor they are to different sensor) can make the computer to thing that the motor is to hot ( after it sits a short time the steam it the motor thinks it hot than what it is) making the fuel to lean. If it set longer but not to cold the sensor is not in the anti-freeze to will think it is colder and put to much fuel in.
