Nine times out of ten you've bent your valves, and your looking at replacing cylinder heads, you can try disconnecting your coils an turning the engine over with a breaker bar, if it's locked up then you can count on serious problems. It's really hard to tell withou removing the cylinder heads however.

Timing Belt : Service and Repair


There is no official replacement guide for this part, but most most mechanics think the timing belt should be inspected every 30,000 miles and replaced every 60,000 miles. If the timing belt stretches or breaks, serious damage can be done to the internal components of your engine

2001 VW Golf TDI ,overheats,spent over $2000 instaled new radiator,water pump,timing belt kit after VW dealer at Ontario,CA diagnosed problem.Car still overheats,but I used other repair shop to replace...


Fact is, for a 2001 car, taking it to a dealer is just asking for trouble-they saw you coming, and too advantage of it. You might consult with an attorney, but the fact of the matter is you decided to allow them to 'diagnose' it and then took it to another facility for repair. That it took them 4 hours to incorrectly diagnose says it all-unless a car is under warranty, taking a vehicle to a dealer is a huge waste of money.

Get a compression test done-it might reveal a blown head gasket or worse, damage to the mating surfaces of the engine and head(s)-I think the repair facility who actually did the repairs bought into the bad diagnosis, so appeal to their professionalism-have them do the compression test and a pressure test to the cooling system to determine the extent of the damage. Finally, your car is 10 years old-the dealer should have done right by you, but more often than not, the abuse people who drive older cars because of the years of attachment and the possibility of a huge bill.

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.

03 vw bettle serptine belt


Replacing the serpentine belt on a New beetle is not easy as it was on the old one.

First you need to remove the Water tank, and undo the hoses near to the water tank.
Then you remove the three bolts securing the tensioner with a 13mm socket wrench, and release the tensioner.
Then you replace the belt.

The procedure is explained here on pages 2 to 5
, do not go over page 5, the rest of the procedure is on replacing the timing belt, and you risk to damage your car by touching the timing belt.

Once you replace serpentine belt, ensure that the pumps is running, that the belt is well in tension, and that is solidly there, not slipping out.

All the repairs must be done or supervised personally by a qulified mechanic.

Regards.
