TDI 02 1.9 Jetta smoking and runs rough it sat for 7 years


When the engine sets, moisture can build up in the cylinders, causing rough walls and blow by past the rings. also seals can dry out allowing fluid and gasses to pass through? Fortunately, usually when you run it for a while it'll clear up. How long did you try to run it? Also if you have the same gas in it, that could cause a lot of smoke.

Misfiring cylinder 3 & 4


Sounds like a bad turbo to me. When you "kick it in", the engine falters and you get black smoke for a while. What is probably happening is that the turbo is leaking oil into the intake air stream, putting it into the cylinders with the fuel/air mix and causing one of two issues. Either the oil is inhibiting the combustion process, causing the falter and the resulting poor ignition, plus the oil, is giving black smoke, OR, the oil in the cylinders is fouling the plug momentarily, resulting in the fuel/oil being passed into the exhaust stream, burned in the catalytic converter and exits as black smoke. If it runs OK except when under turbo load, have that thing checked out ASAP. And, as far as the light staying on, most faults will set permanently after they occur three or more times within a certain period of time. This is ti ensure that intermittent faults won't cause false setting of the light.

My 1969 triumph spitfire has been running fine but lately has started suddenly cutting out and losing power under heavy uphill loads. When this happens it always blows oil and smoke out aroumd the bol


time to rebuild motor or replace it. The smoke your seeing is pressure from the cylinder escaping around the piston rings into the crankcase and venting out the covers

THE SMOKE YOU HAD IS BECAUSE MANY TRIES TO START COLLECTED FUEL IN THE COMBUSTION CHAMBERS AND SUDDENLY BURNT ON START. ANY WAY THE HESITATION OF CRANK START FOR LONG TIME CHECK WHETHER YOU DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE FUEL PUMP,FUEL FILTER OR COLD START SENSOR. CHECK YOUR SPARK PLUGS CLEAN THE THROTTLE BODY AND DO WITH SCANNER THE ADAPTATION.S

91 cressida running rough also blowing smoke nothing wrong with head gasket any clues??


white smoke would be a sign of a head gasket blue smoke is a sign of burning oil black smoke is a sign of a fuel problem so blowing smoke and rough running do a compression test and look for a weak cylinder

Whit smoke with a sweet smell means you have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket.

Using oil with no visible leaks. No water in oil or oil in water and not down on power so head gasket should be ok. Not blowing smoke when hot or cold. Alot of oil blows out oil cap hole when cap is...


It sounds to me like the oil is being used slowly, by running through your "valve stem seals". The Valve stem seals are small pieces of rubber that surround the valve under the valve spring. They are designed to keep oil from running down the valve, and into the cylinder. When the valve stem seals wear out, they allow oil in small amounts to pass through the cylinder head, and run into the cylinder. If the vehicle sits for several hours, you will usually see a small amount of smoke on start-up, but rarely will ever see smoke while it's running.

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.....

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.
