Default New to TDIClub - Anyone in Pittsburgh area?

I'm interested in finding out about any TDI resources in the Pittsburgh Area or east of Pittsburgh near Somerset, PA. I recently bought a 2002 VW Jetta TDI (137,000 miles) and need to talk with some savvy mechanics about replacing a valve body, timing belt and water pump. Thanks!

Default Looking for gurus - thanks for the clarification

The tranny is a 01M automatic. I did have it checked and the service shop said it was throwing an N92 code - open circuit. They recommended replacing the valve body for $1900, but I am hoping to come in way less than that.

What timing belt and water pump kit do the gurus recommend for a 02 Jetta TDI?

Sorry to hear that you have an auto. That tranny is problematic... Look for coolairvw he refurb the 01m.

Tbelt kits from IDparts, metalman, impexfap. If you get an ebay parts you will be our 2,500+ fore a new head when the belt breaks.
If you want to learn about these cars come to the IMPEX GTG Jun 2. there is a thread at the top of this section.

Between New Ken, Monroeville, Greensburg, and Indiana.

A suburb of Apollo.

Berkebile oil in Somerset is one of my old customers. I'm about an hour from the Somerset TP exit.

Default Timing belt and Valve Body work

Thanks for any leads on these repairs, davebugs ... I'm needing to get the work done reasonably, because I'm realizing I paid too much for the Jetta ($6500) since it is needing this much work immediately. At least it's a Florida body, so not a lick of rust at this point Many years of life left ...

I know the general area. Have a good friend down in West Newton, so we trek all around that area.
