      I dont see any leaking fuel, and it has no problems starting, or driving...... Its running much better now, i put some fresh fuel in it, drives fine, actually it seems better than before...... It just smokes...... Alot...... I mean it smokesALOT!!!!! I also own a Ford F250 Diesel, and it smokes about as much as my VW, And its a 7.3L!

      It just doesnt idle like it used to, its much rougher, and clanky.... Doesnt really smooth out if you pull the cold start....

      I can adjust the smoking with the smoke screw right? And then adjust the idle? I dont have the rpm tool for this engine, so i would be adjusting it by ear, but i think i know what a smooth idle sounds like

      Yes, backing out the max fuel screw while adjusting the idle will reduce smoke.
