This is a problem that many PD engine have seen. See this article on how to check for worn camshaft lobes, worn lifters, and how to replace them. All PD engines that were sold in the US are about the same so they're all covered by this article. The Touareg is the exception, I'm not sure of the differences because it's a totally different engine.

FYI I read elsewhere that a private party is trying to start a class action lawsuit against VW for worn camshafts.
I will wait to see where this is headed before publishing it in the FAQ. It's still way too early to say there is any lawsuit, terms to be included in the class, and what damages will be included.
