I have a Jetta TDI with no issues either - DO NOT add a diesel additive. It will void whatever warranty you have left. Sometimes a simple fix like a fuel filter can solve the problem. I would avoid adding uncertified and unwarrantied products into your car. Some fuel stations have different types of diesel fuel that may be the issue. Avoid stations that are still using diesel fuel before 2006 standards.

Dealer is best - even if they can't fix the problem. Documentation is key.

SOURCE: 2004 VW Touareg won't start

I had/have the exact same problem with my 2004 Treg. I took it to the dealer in April and they told me it was the fuel pump and replace them. Everything was fine until the other day when it happened again. I took it to a local mechanic who told me it was the crankshaft sensor. If it happens again I'm selling the car for scrap!

You need the codes pulled form the vehicles ECU with a scanner. The TDI engine does not do this when running correctly.

There are a number of reasons I can think of why this might happen, some being, Glow Plug/s failure, injection pump problem, such as temperature sensor failed, fuel system air leaks and alternator charging problems..

The alternator has a one way drive pulley that fails often causing unstable idle and belt noise..

Low power indicates the engine is in limp mode needing attention.

Find a garage with a scanner for this VW and allow them to check the vehicle.

Colt 2.8 TDI idel normal for about 10 min and then white smoke out of exhaust and then iratic idling.


difficult to diagnose ,would need to put a pressure tester on radiator and see what happens as white smoke is water vapour,unless its diesel as people often describe white smoke buts its a light grey which is fuel ,although the question does say TDI so am i to assume its a diesel turbo injection ,if it is then to think some more i would need to know if it has an injector pump or if its common rail .because you can have two completely different answers
