Zero tolerance means the valves may have hit the piston when the timing belt broke. I would suggest doing a cylinder leakage test to see if the valves are bent or not. If the valves are not bent then you can replace the belt and everything will be ok. If there are bent valves then the cylinder heads will need to be removed and repaired.

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?

If your timing belt broke, then it is possible that the valves in your engine got bent, which won't allow the cylinders to pressurize the fuel/air mixture, and it will let all of the mix to flow freely into the intake/exhaust manifold. This can be checked with a pressure tester that is threaded into the spark plug opening. A mechanic should have one, or you can probably find one at an auto parts store.

For what it's worth, my info tells me it's a non-interference engine, so your o.k. but I will double check that & get back to you.

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.
