Question about Volkswagen Jetta
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.
