2000 tdi when cold tick over very lumpy and smokes when warm its ok it starts first time no problem?


Not sure what "tick over" means. Suspect it is hard to start when cold? Could be bad glow plugs. They "warm" the cylinders to get them up to temp before starting. It could also be that you are not waiting for the cylinders to warm up. I have a 2009 tdi. It has a light on the dash that goes on when I put the key in, but I have to wait for it to go out before starting the engine.

02 VW Jetta TDI with ALH engine glow plug


this is a common problem for these cars glow plugs go bad like spark plugs however the smoke would lead to bad mass airflow meter. it is not telling ecu corrcet miss. disconnect mass airflow meter. when cold see if this makes it start better. it should would means you need new m.a.f. glow plug issue take a test light place clamp on positive of battery then pull off glow plug connectors place tip of test light on glow plug the bad one will have a dull light unlike the good one which will be brighter. will need new plugs and wire harness four **** connectors and wire striper and crimper will fix concern good luck

Engine shakes and hesitate when started until it idles down


Sounds like its missing on 1 or more cylinders. A check of the plugs and wires is in order, Could be a fouled plug or a loose/bad sparkplug wire. Best of luck.
