Question about Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 2003 Jetta 1.8 turbo (gas/manual). I replaced the timing belt last fall. The mechanic also replaced the thermostat, since that time the check engine light has remained on constantly. When I take it in for oil changes, etc, the guys check the code on the light and say it is fine, just a glitch that keeps the light on. In the past week the car has been using more gas and smelling hot when I am in stop and go traffic. I took it for an oil change and the tech said it was a quart low on oil. If repair would be more than 2000 I will trade it in for a new car while this one still runs. Has 112,000 miles. Suggestions on what might be the problem?

sounds like the timing belt it has a interference engine so if the timing belt broke you could have bent rods and cracked pistons or worse. good luck
