Vw jetta timing belt problems

Hi and thanks in advance for any help. I am working on the neigbors car it is a 99 vw jetta with a 2.0 liter engine. They brought the car to me because it was making an awful noise. after i looked into it i noticed that the timing belt was being pushed into the timing belt cover due to a small gear that was cocked a little sideways. I need to know what the name of this part is and also the firing order, location of the #1 cylinder, and plug numbers on the distributer. thanks again

2001 jetta does this have a timing belt


Yes, all the engines for this year are timing belt driven. I think there are four different engine options for your Jetta. It would help to pst what engine you have.

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.

Could be sepentine or timing belt.
More than likely a tensioner for serp belt or timing belt. It could also be the pulley for the alternator - a pretty common problem for VW's.

Does a 1992 1.8L vw jetta GL have an interference engine?


My manual for '93-'98 models calls for a timing belt replacement every 60K, and the engines are the same for earlier models, VW didn't do much different to them during that time.
