Question about Cars & Trucks
I have replaced glow plugs twice, recon injectors, but still idling like on three cylinders when cold and smoke a lot, after five minutes when a little hot no more problems, this is my second 2.5 mad about it just this problem
Hi, on the diesel they are no spark plugs, you still have problem with injector maybe one of them is not spraying diesel is dripping. Take them out and leave the people to double check them all.

replace the relay but check connections first as often connection get hot and corroded.failing which buy a push button switch use a relay and and some heavy wire to and from relay to the heaters and work them manually.you could try seperating the relay and cleaning the connections inside.

Sounds like your injection pump timing is off, an injector is leaking or a bad seal on your IP.
VW dealers have a horrible reputation when it comes to TDI's. Check out the posts over at www.tdiclub.com Those guys are very knowledgeable - and the first thing they'll tell you is don't take it to a dealer.
You can probably find someone in your area that has a copy of Vag-Com (scantool software that vw uses) software that could look at your timing. It definitely sounds like your dealer was throwing parts at your car because they didn't know what your problem is. If I were you, I'd copy and paste your post from here over at www.tdiclub.com

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
