Major TDI Engine Repairs...Cam failures
By okcar4me on

Vehicle

2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)

Review

Known issue on TDI owner club - cam shaft and lifters fail (not hardened correctly)... BRM Engine code 1.9L Costs to repair was $2000.
Prevention: have timing belt replacement, at same time ask for mechanic to assess the valve lifters (followers)... for scarring, pitting and worse yet total failure! Will lose power, will trip all sorts of codes Check engine, progresses to worse!
Sorry VW does not offer any ear to this problem.. I am going to japanese engines! Never again for me.
If it happens report it to NHTSA ODI (google it).
best wishes.....

Best Features

Mileage, but then it is compromised by engine and power train failure, EGR cooler pipe failure!

Worst Features

Pay attention to the Engineering, that is why we buy VW cars, but have been fooled.
