Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
When did you last replace the air filter?
Check the air filter it may have been clogged by dust.
If its (air-filter) ok thn you will have to get the injector pump and the injector nozzles serviced.
Hope this helps!

Do you drive it just around town mostly??? I've had two TDI's, an '02 (65k at trade in, never an issue with it) and now an '04 wagon (currently 110K, turbo cooler coolant leak only issue, fixed under recall).
The worst thing that can be done to these cars, my opinion, is drive short distances, and not drive them a bit "hard". Meaning, foot to the floor occasionally, and engine hot. Even take to a higher rpm than usual before a shift. The turbo and exhaust system can plug or become extremely "sooted" up. When this happens and all of a sudden acceleration is needed, they can push a lot of dust and black out of the exhaust.
Stop by a VW dealership and see if they can show you a replaced turbo, just driven around town. You will be amazed! Also, make sure you are using somekind of diesel fuel treatment, preferably what VW recommends. It will help the soot issue some.

Throttle body service. You have a lot of carbon build up.
