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.

Good luck-

Would a faulty egr valve on my 02 PT Cruiser 2.2crd cause excessive black smoke and injector knock under full throttle....thanks


black smoke is over fueling and although the turbo appears to spin ok the vale variation actuator may not be operating correctly
there are vanes in the exhaust turbine housing that are altered to increase the exhaust gas flow onto the turbine blades for quicker acceleration and these vanes are operated by a vacuum actuator and rod by a sensor
the vanes are subject to extreme heat and can rust stuck open or the hose gets hard and cracks
s not allowing the vanes to work
I would be concentrating in this area before the EGR valve
run the fault codes as well to get a better idea of the possible fault as some systems only put the light on for extreme conditions in engine and transmission

02 dodge strauts, smoke coming from tail pipe


what kind of smoke by that I mean what colour is it and when does is happen under hard acceleration, at idle, when first started, under light acceleration, idling a long time? blue smoke is burning oil, white smoke is burning coolant sometimes accompanied with a sweet smell, black smoke its running rich. those are the basics.

Excessive smoking inspite of new nozzles and newly calibrated injection pump


One of two things as far as i know that can cause this...
1... piston rings are shot (smokes all the time but worse when its cold)
2... Valve stem seals (mostly smokes when you accelerate)
Hope this is of use..

Jetta tdi 2007 running rough on start up at times. blowing excessive amounts of smoke from exhaust at times. poor idle at times feels like running on three and a half cylinders, takes a few seconds too...


You may want to check the ignition system. The smoke could be because of unburnt fuel. You may be running on less then 4 cylinders. Check if all spark plugs are firing. You may also want to use a scanner if there are error codes found in its ECU.

on some diesel engines the glow plugs will cycle after the engine is started. it does sound like your glow plugs are not all working that would cause the hard start and excessive smoke when it does start.
