    Does the engine actually spin or turn over when you try to start it? If so, the fusible links are ok.

    Let me know and we will get started.

There is a shift lever park interlock. Either push the shift lever firmly in to park or turn the key on, put your foot on the brake and pull the shift lever down at least to drive then return it firmly back to drive, you may also rock the truck back and forth while it is in park, then try to start it.

No codes would point to fuel problem such as low pressure.
Was the car left overnight at the shop so it would be a cold start for the mechanic ?

Hi i have a 05 transporter 1.9tdi with roughly 100k makes a screech when locking left plus white smoke when starting only sometimes ,any ideas ,dont want too go too main dealer they will want my house...

like your style ,want the house ?? the left turn power screech could just be the belt needs a bit mor tension ,check the oil level first though ,now as for the white smoke on starting ,WELL IGNORE IT this is caused by the automatic excess fuel cold start device and the smoke is a light grey not white but it appears like this as you see light through it making it look white .This is normal on a cold morning it doesnt need new filters or the codes read or a tranny flush or the pigs tails brushing just leave alone ,check the steering fluid level use ATF to top up or hydraulic oil then if still screeches tighten the belt unless its a one big one in whick case it may need a new tensioner or just leave it alone its not a major problem as yet .Must tell the other mechanics in the pueblo this morning as we congregate in marias bar for brekkie and coffee and tell tall tales but this one will take the biscuit thats for sure .

I'm A mechanic. And I was involved in a problem like this. With the same kind of vehicle.
And Finally a Found the problem. On my Case was the Coolant temperature sensor.

Maybe on your case is diferent but You don't loss nothing Trying .
In the morning Try to start the Vehicle if no run.
Go at front under hood, and disconnect the ECT Engine coolant sensor.
Is located at the front of the Engine Beside of the Thermostat housing.
After you disconnect go try to start if run ok. Replace the sensor with a new one.

I hope this help on your problem.

Thank you for use fixya...
