Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I bought this jetta from a little dealer ship i installed a cold air intake in it. the intake had a hose that i was supposed to hook up to the breather hose. my car didnt have the breather hose and it didnt have the sec air pump. i compared it to another jetta the same year and it turns out its missing the air pump and the egr valve. im driving the car like that till i get it repaired. should i worry bout driving it. will any kind of problems come up. its a 2000 jetta gl 2.o
Go immediately back to the dealer and find out why the parts are missing,,,In MOST states its ******* to sell a vehicle with pollution control parts missing!!!

I don't think that's the EGR valve that the shop is talking about for that kind of dollar figure. More likely the injectors or injector pump....accordianman

Sounds to me you blow by. Thats when either rings on the pistons are worn letting oil pass by or you have a scorned cylinder which also is letting oil get by. Should get a compression check done to make sure.

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

Double check the very small hose that comes off of the manifold, since it sits so close to the manifold, I would not be surprised to find it frail and broken.
If you have tried everything else, have you had the code cleared after you changed out the parts? try having it cleared again....
