Hi All, new member, I am from NJ and have a 2005.5 jetta tdi I boughtnew with 185,000 miles. My car recently developed what I can best desribe as a miss. I had it to the dealer and they said it was fine but I know there is a problem. Power and fuel ecomomy are off.
This looks like a great site.

Yep, unfortunately cam wear is common in our 2005.5-2006. You bought new and it has 185,000 now right? What service history? Oil type/weight/change frequency?

Miss when running or miss at idle?

Yes, Ibought it new and put 185,000 on it. The service history is as follows, oil (mobil1 0w-40) and filter every 10k, air and fuel filter every 20k. Timing belt and water pump, tires and brakes 100k, EGR valve and a map sensor changed. Never did anything with the injectors or camshaft wear.
I guess I will start by pulling the valve cover andchecking the cam and lifters. Wish it was summer.
Thanks Sam:dunno
