Question about SsangYong Cars & Trucks
Most likely this is worn and leaking valve seals. engine oil leaks onto the piston (mostly burning away quickly and unnoticeably). when slowing from sustained engine speed, this oil doesnt burn away as rapidly, building in the combustion chamber instead. the built up oil burns away when you again accelerate, causing smoke for a very short period. this also causes momentary misfire (sometimes read by the ecu and signaling the check engine light). repeated multiple times a day, this leads to premature spark plug failure (fouled plugs). replacing the plugs is a short term fix (they will foul again). You need to get your valve seals replaced or this problem will get worse.

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
