The answer to that question will be in your users manual, but you will need to get the fault codes read. The engine is computer controlled, and it stores it's recorded faults. So the only sensible way forward is to get a list of fault codes from the onboard diagnostic system and take it from there. You could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" and run it on a portable computer.
Hope this helps a bit, D

find your local vw service center and see if they can plug their computer in to see if there are any codes on the cpu. there may be one for an intermitent for the turbo. i ran into the same problem last month and it was the turbo veins are sticky so occasionaly it lack power going up hills. it did not cause the check engine light to come on, but there was a code on the cpu when they checked it. if it happens again while you are driving, pull over, shut the car off for 10-30 secs then restart it and see if it makes a difference. when it happened to me i called my guy and thats what he had me do and it was like a new car after that.

SOURCE: 03 jetta tdi timing belt broke

The number of miles is not relevant, because in 7 years of driving, obviously it was mostly highway miles and caused little wear.

It only takes about an hour to try just changing the belt. You need to buy a belt anyway. So it is always worth the attempt.
Most VW's have small depressions in the pistons for the valves, to prevent anything serious.

But no, I do not believe the TDI even is an interference fit.
Only the DOHC GTI engine was even close. I do not believe the TDI had a dual cam version, nor was any Jetta dual cam. And it is only with dual cam that the valves hit, because they are on such a hemisherical angle.

SOURCE: 2000 Jetta TDI: How do I change spark plugs on 2000 VW jetta 2.0...

You're in the TDI (diesel) solutions section so it uses glow plugs.
If it's a petrol engine 2.0L then it would be accessible above and below intake manifold using a swivel spark plug deep socket.

2000 tdi when cold tick over very lumpy and smokes when warm its ok it starts first time no problem?

Not sure what "tick over" means. Suspect it is hard to start when cold? Could be bad glow plugs. They "warm" the cylinders to get them up to temp before starting. It could also be that you are not waiting for the cylinders to warm up. I have a 2009 tdi. It has a light on the dash that goes on when I put the key in, but I have to wait for it to go out before starting the engine.

2000 Jetta TDI, has 390k on it. Changed front struts and used the same spring, now there is a rattling sound, didn't make this before. Has new top bushing. Could the springs not have enough pressure for...

The thing that comes to mind is that the insert has not been put in the strut housing properly and is rattling around inside it. Springs are just springs and support the weight of the vehicle so it will be under load of the vehicle at all times. Check that the top bearing support is tight in the support frame of the vehicle.

2000 jetta brake light turns on

Assuming you mean that it turns on all the time, you will need to check the switch under the driver side of the dash. This switch is designed to touch the back of the brake pedal when you release the brake. If it has looks broken, the part needs to be replaced. If it does not touch the back of the pedal, you need to unscrew it a bit until it does. If left alone it will run your battery down.

I pulled my switch out of the dash and sprayed it with contact cleaner. Air dry and put back in. 2 years without a problem. If you're not electrical savy, I'm pretty sure there was a recall on that, and it should be replaced for free.

Constant light on dashboard

My '01 TDI had the same issue and apparently it was a switch gone bad behind the horn and airbag. . . so no idea if the airbag would have worked had I been in an accident. Definately worth going to VW and having it looked at though. Better safe than sorry.

Location of Flasher for turn signals

The flasher for a 2000 Jetta is in the hazard light switch in the middle of the dash. If you want to replace the flasher, you'll need to replace that switch.
