Question about Cars & Trucks
Should have glow plugs installed.
try leaving the ignition on for a few seconds rather than cranking.
leaves time for the plugs to warm up.
may need replacing.

SOURCE: black smoke from exhaust
This is almost certainly a split hose - mine was the large hose coming out of the bottom of the EGR valve.
Speaking to a parts guy at my local Jaguar dealer, he said that the new part is uprated as Jaguar are aware that this is a problem.
The split allows more air in and results in the ECU changing the mixture and over fuelling - Black smoke is an indication of un-burnt Diesel. As well as the black smoke you may also notice a whistle/whine or sucking noise when you accelerate and a lack of power / lumpiness at around 2000rpm.
Hope that helps!

The only sensible way forward is to get a list of fault codes from the onboard diagnostic system and take it from there. You could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" and run it on a portable computer.
There are lots of possible reasons for the problem and guessing will not really help. If these suggestions turn out to be sound, please give my reply a "Fixya!"rating, If they do not, please hold off rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

Check the oil fill cap and the radiator cap, see if you have a milky scum accumulation on either one, can indicate a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder where the oil is burning and allowing water intothe hot cylinder which causes white smoke to be emmitted from tailpipe.

It is hard starting my VW 2003 Jetta. It usually take 5 to 10 cranking before it turns over. Then it run normally. It only happens when the car has not been driven for about 6 hours.
