Sounds like your head gasket is cracked letting radiator fluid into your pistons. After it runs a little bit the water will dissipate. White smoke means you are getting water into the piston areas. Better repair ASAP before major damage is done. Will cost you big time if you don;t get repaired.

SOURCE: 2001 Jetta Tdi runs rough

Hi Whitneyford
Your priblem sounds more like the glow plug timer relay than the exhaust. White smoke after start up is a sign of diesel entering the exhaust before it has burned completly. This is as a result of the glow plugs switching off too early, which is usually caused by one or more faulty glow plugs or a faulty timer.With engine COLD, IGNITION ON... Check voltage with all 4 plugs connected. You should have a reading of 10--12 volts
If there is no power, check in-line fuse on loom coming to plugs.
If power is present, check for How Long. If only for a few seconds, the problem is with the timer. This unit (the larger of the relays and usually black in colour) is fitted on the fuse board, and there are a few different types. They come in 7 pin..8 pin..and even 9 pin units.
The glow plug light is often NOT accurate (even with a new timer unit fitted) as to the time of heating, and you will almost certainly find that power will flow to the plugs for quiet some time after the light goes out. This is not unusuall with The Jetta Tdi.
Good luck.
I hope this helps you sort out this problem

SOURCE: hard starting diesel

only 2 things can maake a diesel run rough at start up ,,1--- air in the system 2----- 1 or more of the glow plugs not working. this sounds like the latter ,if you have a couple of glow plugs not working ,it will miss on those cylinders until it warms up ,and the smoke is mostll exesive fuel when it does fire . recommend you check the glow plugs

SOURCE: i get white smoke on start up, once warm its fine

White smoke is usually a sign of water in the oil,being burnt along with fuel in the cylinders.

Check your oil if there is a milky white color on the dipstick then you need to take it in for service.

You may need to have your fuel sysytem cleaned and checked,sometime white smoke can be from improper fuel mixture.

2001 buick regal ls... I have white smoke comming out of the tail pipe of the car, when I first start the car and let it run for a lil bit the hose connected to the thermostat gets tight... I took it to...

You're probably going to have to get professional help.
White smoke is usually burning coolant. In a previous post you said the intake gaskets were replaced, so if they are installed correctly, it could be a bad head gasket.
If it is coolant leaking into the engine, you should also be low on coolant in the radiator.

Idle is high at start - 1800 rpm. Seems like excessive white smoke from exhaust. Put into reverse and back out of driveway it has a regular shudder (bump bump bump) but not hard metal grinding sound.....

white smoke out of the exhaust would be a sign that it is burning coolant... if it goes away after it warms up, it could just be condensation inside the exhaust pipe. 1800 rpm is a very high idle, maybe have your IAC motor on the throttle body checked... check engine light? if so have the code read at your local auto zone.

Everytime i start it, it spits out black smoke real bad...warms up and only smokes a lil on take offs..Can the lean burn or egr thing be taken off car and still run fine?

This problem is caused by bad electric choke, or improperly adjusted choke. The Electronic Fuel Control system, as well as EGR, don't come into play until the thing's warmed up. Check the electric choke and its adjustment, also check the choke control on the right rear of the intake, and the charge temp sensor adjacent to the choke control, just in front of the distributor.

Engine smoke and smell

You have a bad head gasket. So far the leak is not so bad but will eventually reach the oiling openings in the gasket so watch out for that. Change them as soon as you can

White smoke coming out tailpipe

If your intake gaskets are leaking, when you dump soapy water on the gasket, it should bubble like crazy ( when it's running). If you can, run it with the rad cap off and watch for bubbles. If it keeps bubbling, you probably have a head gasket problem.
