White smoke means that coolant gets into engine's combustion chamber.
Probably because of overheating and damaged gasket. Anyway disassembly

2006 Jetta TDI Stalls in gear


These little engines(although very good little engines)have a problem with carbon build up in the intake manifold. It builds up so bad it begins to choke the engine off. The only solution is to remove the intake and soak with a good solvent over night and will generally take you a good couple of hours to clean out to get to "like new" again. Once this is accomplished, it's like driving your car new again!!

Just replace Turbo in 2001 Jetta TDI. Car has


if the old turbo blew,chances are you have swarf in the top of the cylinders and it has burnt the valve seats.white smoke is normally unburnt fuel/water mix.also if the car has been standing it could be just condensation it the exhaust pipes which will dissipate when car is left to run until very hot or thrashed for about 10 mins.hope its the latter.....

When do you change timing belt on 2001 TDI Jetta. We have every 60,000, but service now just told me it has always been 105,000. Also we have a 2006 TDI Jetta and that timing belt is every 80,000 correct?


My sincere apologies for the delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

I do not know if you still need this information, however I am answering it either way.


The Serpentine Belt: visible on the outside of the Engine, should be replaced every 60,000 miles. The Timing Belt: not visible/inside the Engine, should be inspected/replaced every 100,000 miles.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Again my apologies...

It is sometimes hard to start my jetta tdi. When this happens and I finally get it started, qite a bit of thick smoke comes out of the exhaust. Any thoughts?


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.

2003 tdi, 54 k miles, bought car new, had manifold cleaned, new glow plugs and harness. car has been driven only short commutes for 3 years. Heavy blue smoke at startup, then it clears right up. No...


valve seals are going. when car sits excess oil gets past the valve seals then when you staRT up it burns the oil off then runs fine and no more blue smoke. It is fine to run like that had the same in a dodge caravan 1996 6cyl. ran another 100 000 km. and still ran fine got rid of it for other reasons.

When should I have the timing belt changed on my 2006 vw jetta tdi? It has 94,000 miles on it already.


Some manufacturers have different opinions on this. Most places will recommend 60k, that is on the safe side. If you have 94k on it i would recommend it. It may last another 100k, but its not a chance you want to take.

2001 Jetta 1.8T, 100K miles. Smokes when hot.


Ouch! you've got engine coolant in the exhaust from a leak somewhere...DO NOT run this engine until you get someone (dealer is best in this instance) to diagnose ($50-125)
