Timing belt change is usually in the $600-900 range, depending on what parts you replace. On your car, I would spend a little extra up front to install the "long life" kit. The later years of your model had a longer life rated timing belt (more km between changes) and costs like $50 extra. Always be sure that whoever does the job changes the water pump. In their infinite wisdom, VW decided to design the engine so that if the water pump seizes, it can wreak havoc on the timing belt, potentially creating a large paper-weight from your engine.

Hey all, I have a quick question about pricing, I'm new to this whole TDI business and I want to know the general price range that used TDI's go for. I know they are more expensive then regular gas cars and that the engines can go up to 500,000+km, but that doesn't mean the suspension and such can go the same, I would assume the car is built the same minus the engine and a few other components. Anyhow, I was wondering what I should be looking at for a jetta/golf, lowest trim, 5 speed, 2000-2003, and at around 120,000 to 180,000km. Thanks for the advice.

+1 for Total Mechanical Services. Johnny is a good honest guy who actually cares. It's worth the drive to Orangeville.

Hello, found this site, thought you all might be interested.
I priced out a intercooler here in Ptbo, around $400-450, with no sensor. Same intercooler from this site, from the USA to Canada including shipping was $88.

His name is Prothe, goes by many others as well. He sells cheap Chinese knockoff parts trying to
pass them off as OE or OEM. Legendary on the TDI club.

just an FYI, i've order parts from autopartsway.ca for the jetta. Mainly filters. But there we're all MANN filters. Price was decent too.

Won't help me now with the truck.

I'm biased as hell cause its my local parts store, but SALE auto in Stouffville is the best parts store I have ever been to. I work on my family cars and thus don't give them too much business, but because I go to them for my business over places like C tire and NAPA they respond by treating me better than chains would. The owner has stayed late to ensure someone was there to get me my parts, his guys have dropped off parts at my house, hell one time his guy did my cabin filter, they use auto-camping so OEM products isn't a problem, and if you like after market goods, they can get a wide variety of brands. Highly recommend these guys, local shops will always have my money over online retailers and big box stores.
