I live near Austin, TX and recently bought a 2006 Jetta TDI (option 1), and am really enjoying it. The Jetta has 82K+ miles on it, so I will be doing the timing belt replacement very soon now.

I was a diesel mechanic in the Navy (1967-1971), and only own one other diesel until buying the Jetta. My other diesel is a Kubota 4WD diesel tractor - not very road worthy, but a great help in the maintenance of my 5 acre home site.

Have been doing work as a Mechanical Engineer since 1975.

Welcome! This thing is quite different right? FYI, also check the camshaft before doing the TB. This is a common wear problem, there's an article in the FAQ on how to do this inspection.
