    How can I get my car to stop smoking?
    I just had my engine replaced. It starts to smoke a decent amount after a few minutes of driving. I was told it is the oil leftover from the previous engine burning off (head gasket blew). Is there any way I can get the smoke to stop? Engine temp is normal and ...

      You should go out once for service of your car, before its get too late.
      or optionally if you want to sell your car and get a good value of it to buy a new one. You can do it at : http://www.classified11.com/

      Think you bought a vehicle many engine problems
      & those different shops clearly are not doing you any
      favors in diagnosing all the problems

      Sounds like the motor is on the way out

      May be a common problem on a 4 cyl & turbo

      Probably why the first owner parted with it

      Why a shop tells you no sense about dash lights being in error
      they know their are many issues & are trying to distance themselves
      from your car

    Why does my car hesitate or feel like the gas peddle is disconnected when I step on the gas?
    I can depress the peddle several times with no response. This seems to happen more often when pulling out into traffic.

      Is this was a radio factory installed ? Obtain the code from the dealer ( pay a small fee ) and show the vehicle identification ownership.

      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance.

      This aspect is important; there may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.

      Do not skip this important first step - there are literally hundreds of possible fault codes. Avoid wasting/ throwing money at the problem.

      First question - what is the engine oil level? Second question - how many miles on the engine? Third question - is the check engine light on?
      The high pressure fuel injectors may make the ticking noise - noticeable at times.

      Furthermore, VW has issued a technical service bulletin (TSB) - you may contact the local dealerships for more details;

      Thanks for the reply, we just done the oil change ourselves, no check engine light on, and I remember being immobilized because of the injectors, they were changed in October 2013, I personally done the distribution a month ago, the fuel pump was also changed at the same time as the distribution.
      Hope it will help, do I still need to contact the local dealership even if I changed the fuel pump?

      Also, the engine has 93150 miles.

      Yes - contact the dealership about any fuel injector-related noises. It maybe related to the TSB.
