Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
A 1996 Jetta engine is non-interference. This is the 2.0 distributor equipped engine, sometimes called the ABA motor. On rare occasions, non-interference engines may self-damage when the belt breaks, such as the cam shaft may bind etc, but they usually survive. When you installed the belt were you certain that the piston in #1 was at top dead center on the compression stroke, because if it was not, your cam is 180 degrees out (it turns 2x per one crank revolution). Turn the engine over by hand with #1 plug out and your thumb over the spark hole, then check your timing marks.
