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.

I'm trying to buy a good vw jetta, I found one


Most VW are interferance motors. That would mean the pistons could have hit some valves. I would stay away.
Also have you seen the motor? I may be off but I thought the VR6's had a chain. Even if, its still an interfernce motor.

Timing belt broke did it bend any valves


This engine has been identified as an interference engine in which the possibility of valve to piston damage in the event of timing belt failure is most likely to occur, when repairing I would also replace water pump, due to pump is timing belt driven. On an 2002 VW Jetta TDI 1.9L engine, VW recommends timing belt replacement every 80,000 miles.

When should timing belt be changed, 1999(newer mdl) 2.0L Jetta


VW states 80,000
since it is an interference engine you do not want the belt to break or you will suffer major engine damage

Does a vw jetta have a free running engine


No, it is an interference fit motor. If the timing belt breaks, the pistons will come up and hit and bend the left open valves.

Valve job for 2000 VW Jetta GL w/105,000 miles


is he sure it isn't the rings are worn also?  If so don't waste money on a valve job, when you really need a rebuilt motor.  Had you changed the oil more you wouldn't need this repair at this time.  Good uck as his price is decent.  Ask him the price for a long block?

I need to take off the water pump on a automatic 1992 jetta...


If it's a 2.0L or 1.8l, you'll have to take off the timing belt. I'd suggest looking for a procedure on removing the timing belt and the water pump is under the distributor gear usually. Do NOT loose your marks, or else you can ruin the engine.
