The standard is 70k. I would not want to take a chance with it. And while they're there let them replace the waterpump. It will be worth it.

Have a 2002 jetta tdi it won't start and makes a sound like its backfiring what could be wrong


High enough mileage (you didn't say) and a lack of having the timing belt changed at recommended intervals in the owners manual. You really should do this, it isn't just a optional suggestion, they really mean they need to be changed. I always tell people "it is easier and cheaper to drive the vehicle in to have the timing belt changed at your scheduled convenience than it is to be stranded and towed in to have it replaced at your extreme inconvenience". Some makes (Nissan in particular) have interference engines where a broken belt often results in valves being open when the still turning crank drives pistons into them, bending or breaking them. If the timing has jumped it could very well backfire as would a valve hanging open.

My 2001 Jetta TDI has 155k on it. The timing belt was replaced at 78k. What kind of service is required at this type of mileage? Ive had no problems and still get great mileage.


full service means different thing to different mechanics ,like to a fleet fitter it means a good strip and inspect ,to a dealer fitter it means a nice bonus job where the pen is mightier than the doing the actual work .

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.
