You may want to check the ignition system. The smoke could be because of unburnt fuel. You may be running on less then 4 cylinders. Check if all spark plugs are firing. You may also want to use a scanner if there are error codes found in its ECU.

It could be a vacuum leak. Really hard to diagnose with just this amount of info. Important items are outside temp. and frequincy of the problem.

Have you been adding a little more antifreeze recently if so check the floor on the pass. side,if it is wet your heater core is leaking.That will also cause the excess moisture on the inside mostly on the winshield.

This used to happen on my TDi when I would leave the key in the on position before starting for too long. After about 500mi it would stop doing it. It was related to the van aken box that was installed on my car.

Car wont start after washing


You have water getting into your engine bay, it may be running down the firewall to your ECM and PCM cable bundles and seeping into the car or you may be spraying water into your airbox.
check to make sure your airbox is tight and look and feel under your dash for a wet spot near the fire wallis it's your airbox,,,, stop spraying at it, if it's wet under your dash take it to a shop to get it sealed correctly

Vw jetta wont let me start it


It's an ignition problem. If you keep trying to turn over it will start. It's an anti theft device they installed. The little car with the flashing key. Someone likely tampered with your ignition before for this to happen.
