If you replaced the timing belt at 78k and you now have covered 155k.
You should replace this belt again...and do NOT forget to replace the timing belt tensioner as they were prone to wear at this mileage.
Also a full service is in order...ALL filters..Oils..Fluids and Brake Check

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 .

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.

2001 jetta wont rev over 3000 rpms


Please take a code check , it is possible that the timing is incorrect or the fuel pressure is offset.
Make sure that the vehicle had undergone the regular check ups in the said mileage clocked. If not you must attend to the company specified routine service schedule.
Engine oil, oil filter, fuel filter, air filter,timing belts,fuel pressure, code checks, etc..,.

When do you change timing belt on 2001 TDI Jetta. We have every 60,000, but service now just told me it has always been 105,000. Also we have a 2006 TDI Jetta and that timing belt is every 80,000 correct?


My sincere apologies for the delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

I do not know if you still need this information, however I am answering it either way.


The Serpentine Belt: visible on the outside of the Engine, should be replaced every 60,000 miles. The Timing Belt: not visible/inside the Engine, should be inspected/replaced every 100,000 miles.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Again my apologies...

Best to refer to the Owner's Manual, and invoices from prior work done on the vehicle. Things to check include the oil, spark/glow plugs, pcv valve, air filter, wires to the plugs, and most important whether or not the timing belt needs to be replaced. It's difficult generating a detailed list without knowing what has previously been completed and at what mileage interval it was completed.
