I saw the write up on the timing belt change for a MK5 and I knew I had to join. I dont know a thing about tdi's and ive got some work to do on mine. Im at 82000 miles so its time for a timing belt and all the other goodies with it. My egr is covered in black soot so i should probably do some research about that and ive never looked at my camshaft, just alittle scared of what i might see. So looks like ive got alot of reading to do on here, hopefully you guys can help me out down the road, im sure im gonna need it.

The EGR is sooty on the outside? How does the engine firewall look? I think leaky pipes is a common problem so if you see soot stains concentrated aroud one spot, check for a broken or loose pipe.
