SOURCE: volkswagen transporter 2 5 tdi white smoke

Hi, Luke

White smoke from the exhaust is typically oil burning, caused by, worn valve seal(s) - worn or broken piston ring(s) or a broken head gasket, thus allowing excessive oil in to the combustion chamber, but then most auto shops already know this and would require major engine dis-assembly to truly diagnose this issue.

Hard starting could be oil fouled spark plugs, a result of the same issue.

As a side note: I would take a friend who is somewhat mechanically inclined with you to "your workshop" to engage the person(s) to get an in-depth explanation as to how they checked your piston.

Do not purchase a fuel pump or that repair on an assumption, be sure

One of the tell tale signs of a fuel related issue is black smoke...

SOURCE: golf gt tdi 2.0 140 bhp mk 5 - esp light

When there's something wrong with the brake pressure that handbrake warning light comes on.

The ESP warning light could be caused by a lot of things, but most likely it's a dirty fuel filter. Don't take my word for it though, just go to the VW dealer and have it read the faultcodes from the ECU, which should point you/them in the right direction.

Alternatively, when you have the right equipment (= VAGCOM + cable) and knowledge, you or a friend yould diagnose the ECU yourself.

From the sounds of it, you'll need a small service (air filter and oil filter change, etc.) anyways. Don't forget to reset the ECU (or dis- and reconnect the battery) afterwards to erase the faultcode from memory (when there's still something wrong, it'll return soon enough).

You might get lucky with a small service :)

If the vehicle runs smoothly idling (at least 30 mins in Park) I would head directly to the ignition switch, then battery wiring harness.

Rev counter jumps whilst idling and then engine cuts out


Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air fuel ratio when engine is cold....is faulty. It is a common fault on this model.
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
Good luck

My golf 2001 tdi after 3000 rpm sometimes he cuts the acelerator


Could be a few things. IS the check engine on? Could just be a bad mass air flow sensor. Or a seized wastegate. Yuo can start by trying to unplug the mass air flow sensor. If it runs better it could be just that. Just make sure to remove and clean the lower air filter box change the air filter and the snow screen which is located next to the battery where the air enters. These always are blocked. If it runs ok (not perfect change the mass air flow.
