After several years without a TDI, I picked up an '03 Jetta in rough shape.
My current issue is a fairly large amount of white smoke when the engine is cold. Here's what I can tell you about the issue:
* The smoke goes away when the car is at normal operating temperature
I picked up a used '03 Jetta TDI, and I'm looking for a known/trusted mechanic who can give it a complete inspection, top to bottom. The vehicle has been sitting for ~2 years without use.
I live in Connecticut, but I can get to most of Mass and some of eastern NY.

So I moved (back) to Connecticut from California, and my registration runs out in December.
Can anyone living in CT with a TDI tell me what was involved in the emissions testing? I'd like to be prepared.
So my transmission blew up and I have another one arriving soon. I need to find someone trusted to do the swap. I'm in the northwest section of CT, but I can travel somewhat.
Who do you CT folks use?

Last August my TDI (see details in sig) lost 5th gear; no engagement on shifter and no gear engagement. Behaved as if in neutral. I did an adjustment on...
