Hi all. Yesterday i had my golf mk4 tdi pd100 timing belt replaced. I bought a timing belt kit and waterpump from bosch. A mechanic installed and today I went to pick it up. Immediately as i went to start it, it didnt start Immediately but instead there was a second to start the engine. As it started the engine made a much deeper noise. It sounded much louder and deeper as if it was like a tractor. When i started driving it i noticed that it had much less torque and wasnt pulling well. While all this the engine as i went to drive away was making deeper sounds. As I continued to drive it i noticed that it wasnt pulling and was very slow and while i was in 2nd gear and got it up to 3k revs then it was workign like before i had changed it and it was pulling like it used too. During driving it on almost any gear i noticed that when it went up to high revs to 3k and over it was working as it used to. Anyone have any suggestions on whats causing this. Thanks very much.

Most likely your mechanic aligned all the timing marks and installed all the pins properly but didn't know about adjusting the torsion value on the cam.

Forum Rules and Guidelines


This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company last year that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes which they refuse to install. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

Add your car specs to your signature that will show on every post you make.

Car spec now shows not for all members.

Release Notes

We Are Live - Community Feedback

This has been talked about many times.

I've made a poll which no one has posted in, there are a few votes and comments.

Do you like the new forum features?

Wiki pages have been restored as of 7th December, I asked where is the link it should be on top of the main forum.

You need to re-check the timing marks.

You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.
