SOURCE: 2001 Jetta 1.8T, 100K miles. Smokes when hot.

Ouch! you've got engine coolant in the exhaust from a leak somewhere...DO NOT run this engine until you get someone (dealer is best in this instance) to diagnose ($50-125)

SOURCE: 2006 Jetta TDI Stalls in gear

These little engines(although very good little engines)have a problem with carbon build up in the intake manifold. It builds up so bad it begins to choke the engine off. The only solution is to remove the intake and soak with a good solvent over night and will generally take you a good couple of hours to clean out to get to "like new" again. Once this is accomplished, it's like driving your car new again!!

A new turbo charger is about $340, but you can buy the bearings and seals and rebuilt if yourself for about $100

It is not hard, and it does not take long to do.

I normally do not bother with synthetic, but with a turbo charger, it might be worth it. What really seems to ruin turbo chargers the most is not letting them cool off before parking.
Once you turn off the engine, there is no longer any cooling, so the build up heat will burn up the oil and seals.
Run the engine for at least 5 minutes below turbo levels, before shutting down the engine.

The most likely cause is loss of power assistance to the braking system which means you will need to apply increased brake pressure to compensate for the loss of assistance.

The problem will be with the brake servo assist. It is possible there is a leak in the brake servo assist system, which reduces the vacuum, so you are not getting sufficient mechanical assistance when applying the brakes.

It is unwise to be driving the car with this condition. If you lose all power assistance to the brakes, which could easily occur with this fault, the pedal will become very hard, you will need to apply very high pedal pressure and the vehicle will be very difficult to stop. You need to take the car to a VW dealer for service or to a competent brake specialist in your area to inspect the system and rectify the fault.

VW did a recall on some earlier year models for a leaking brake servo and I understand the problem was a faulty vacuum hose which would fail and leak. I am not aware of any recall for this item on later models like your 2004 vehicle.

All the best.

White smoke from exhuast, multiple misfires


White smoke indicates water. If combined with misfires it looks like a broken head gasket or water in the gasoline. Check, when cold and just started if the coolant in the radiator burbs exhaust gas... Also check if the oil is clear and not milky, another indication of water in the oild and also points to a broken head gasket.

White smoke means that coolant gets into engine's combustion chamber.
Probably because of overheating and damaged gasket. Anyway disassembly
and inspection needed.

What causes a 97 yukon to go dead going down the road and hard to crank during cold weather... and has white smoke coming from tailpipes


If you have a failing alternator that could cause the vehicle to die while you're going down the road.
Also, the voltage regulator, ( usually in the alternator ) can not put a suficient amount of cahrge back in to the battery to charge it to it's peak. This could cause the vehicle to be hard to start in cold weather.

White smoke is usually associated with a bad fuel/air mix ratio. Because of the difference in humidity with the cold air it is not uncommon to see some white smoke from the tailpipes.

I hope this helps you.

Random misfires are some of the trickiest problems to solve, usually an ignition system problem a bad or weak coil pack or possibly a spark plug wire. If not the ignition system then surely a clogged injector.

2004 Excursion 6.0 diesel blows intermitent white smoke


I don't drive a Ford but I drive an International and white smoke on start up means the engine is too cold to properly burn the fuel. Your black oil or soot is unburnt fuel. You should look at your engine's preheat system for a malfunction.
