hi everyone i have just joined this group today, i have a touareg 2004,2.5 tdi auto. Every morning it takes about 3 or 4 times before it can start,when it starts there is white smoke coming off the exhaust.have just changed the glow plugs and did a service on the vehicle.i have checked the oil and it smells of diesel. still no changes.the vehicle gives the same starting problem throughout the day.can anyone please advise me on what they think is the problem.

Sounds like it might be duff injector seals letting diesel through into the cylinder bores.

I assume you know how critical it is to use either 505.01 or 506.01 oil in the early R5 and V10 engines with no DPF to avoid premature camshaft lobe wear? Even VW dealers get it wrong.
