VW gas engines are interference engines. Not sure about the diesel ones. If you have had a timing belt fiasco, then you will have to take the head to a shop. BE SURE they know something about VW engines. I took mine to a reputable engine rebuilder but I had to take it apart again and take the head back because they didn't know to check everything. The first time they replaced bent valves, the second they had to replace valve guides and shave the head. When you get the head back from the shop, turn it upside down and pour water into the combustion chambers. If it leaks out the valves then the head has to go back, it won't work. Your engine will run lean and overheat. Hope this helps.

The 2002 lexus es 300 has the 3.0L engine, which is non-interference. The later lexus es 330 has the 3.3L engine, which is an interference engine. The even later es350 has the 3.5 engine and is back to non-interference as well as having a timing chain rather than a belt. Hope this helps.

Timing belt broke . installed new one ,now auto back fire's. won't start


Did you get it timed correctly? You don't just replace them like a fan belt, there is a procedure and marks that you line up. Your engine may be a non-interference or interference which means that if your timing belt breaks your pistons may hit your valves and cause major engine damage. Non-interference means that when the belt breaks it won't interfere and cause damage. Interference means that it will. I don't know what engine you have in your car but if you call a dealer and tell them what engine you have in your car they should be able to tell you if it is a non-interference or interference engine.
