its not a choke its a cold start.

Diesel engines do not have throttle bodies and the engine speed is not governed by restricting/opening the air passage and adding fuel accordingly.

Diesels are a massive air pump , road speed being goverened by how much fuel you dump in it.

Cold start advances pump timing a tad.

In this country you dont really need one TBH- maybe like last winter when it gets to minus double figures..

If cam/pump timing is set bob on and pump lift is spot on and glow plugs good - all is well.

Mine starts on first compression stroke after sitting all night in minus temperatures.

You will might find the cable is main dealer/TPS part only. ask for a 'cold start cable'

Well since the cold weather has come along I have to use the cold start pull, but it fires up straight away with it, rather than chuggin away turning the key. The van has had new glow plugs and a full service. Gueess with 140k miles on it the fuel pump could do with being stripped off and recalibrated. But then I can live with pulling a lever I guess as it all works fine after that

Although its an oldish thread I thought I would post onto this to assist fellow searchers.
I read a VW user handbook today while looking at a new T4(well new to me!) as it was in the glovebox and read on cold start lever its to be used between temps of 18 deg C and -15 deg C. So maybe not just a means of getting going on feezing mornings
