find your local vw service center and see if they can plug their computer in to see if there are any codes on the cpu. there may be one for an intermitent for the turbo. i ran into the same problem last month and it was the turbo veins are sticky so occasionaly it lack power going up hills. it did not cause the check engine light to come on, but there was a code on the cpu when they checked it. if it happens again while you are driving, pull over, shut the car off for 10-30 secs then restart it and see if it makes a difference. when it happened to me i called my guy and thats what he had me do and it was like a new car after that.

Please clarify, Although the alternator light is on, can you start the car? Does it turn over, but not start? If it won't turn over, you 1st need to charge the battery and try to start it. If the light remains on, have your alternator checked, it probably isn't charging the battery. How old is the battery? If it doesn't charge up, it should also be tested to make sure it's ok. Let me know the answers to the above, and let me know what happens. good luck countrycurt0

The only special tool I can think of is a big box of band-aides........
If you've changed a motor before then you know what you're doing.
Good luck, and make sure there are no kids around when you start cursing..lol

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...

standing at the front of the car pull the cover off the left side of the motor and check the belt. No tools are required the check the belt. Cover pulls up and off. It's to the left end of the valve cover.
