    I suspect its a 140 tdi bkd, could be variety of things, has it had fuel filter changed yet, maf, air filter, service for 1 aswell, cambelt, so many things to check, I would certainly get a scan done to see if its thrown any errors up.

    Before you jump on that, get it scanned by someone with vcds aka vagcom, as a service may not cure the issue, I'd be happy to take a look, could even service it aswell tbh :)
