    VW Jetta TDI 1999
    I have a 1999 Jetta TDI MK4. I have recently come victim to an engine runaway when my turbo blew. I replaced my turbo and its been about a month and the car runs great however the only issue is when the car sits a period of time it takes a few seconds when starting and smokes a bit of excess fuel. I have tested all the glow plugs and they are working fine.

    Any ideas as its going to be getting cold up here soon and would like to resolve this soon.

    Thanks for any help.
