Hello and glad to be here. I have always been impressed with the TDI and I finally baught a 2001 Beetle TDI 5spd with 125K a week ago. The car runs great and not any problems. After reading and learning quite abit from this site, i have become conserned about the Timing belt. All I have is a verble from the second owner stating the dealership said it had been changed. Is there something I can check to see if it has or will a belt inspection buy me a little time? I'm not new to engines and have built a few and raced them (dirt track) but am new to the TDI. I know i can do the TB change and will invest in the Metalnerd tools. Now I am "Old School" and had success tunning by feel. Is it possible to fine tune the Injector pump without the Vag-com? Should I post this question on another thread?
