It sounds like sticky injectors. Going on the age I assume its done more then a 100000 if not 200000 kms. The rule is with injectors is that you should service them every 100,000, unlike diesel injectors Petrel injector are cheap. A set might cos $120 but short of throwing it on a scan tool and mapping injector pulses and the cold start input I'd start there. The others thing it could be mixed up with is the cooled start sensor, playing up and over fuelling.

Had the same problem with a Ford Ranger 4 cylinder. It turned out being a blown head gasket between 3rd and 4th cylinder. Compression was blowing from one cylinder to the other. Some times it ran great then others it couldn't pull it's self.

you could have a bad injector spider if the truck is vortec,if not look to the idle air control valve if this part is bad it won't get the right amount of air and flood the truck out, hints why you are smelling fuel, also look at to o2 sensor if this is bad the computer won't adjust the timing another reason you're smelling fuel . hope this helps you and good luck!

get your catalytic converter checked, i have a 2002 gt model and GM just replaced the old with a new one free of charge. They have been having problems with them clogging up so they extended the warranty to 190000kms or 10 years. had the same issues as you and when it was replaced all was good, even sounded better. hope this helps and I hope you get the same deal as I did. it is not a recall so you have to bring it up to them. Good luck.

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
