    2006 Jetta TDI, put some work into it or sell as is?

    I have this 5-speed with 324K miles that looks and runs great but needs a few things to sell for top dollar. The timing belt and cam were replaced around 220K, so the belt is due now. I could do it for the cost of the parts. Headliner sagging. I could R&R it and a shop recover it for $150. Those...

    2006 Jetta, does the turbo make boost even with VNT vanes fully open?

    Trying to figure out the problem with the car which has a freshly rebuilt turbo. Currently for testing purposes the vacuum hose to the VNT actuator is disconnected which means the vanes are fully open. Does this mean that no boost can be made? If so, why does it feel like it is? It has plenty...

    The one on the exhaust manifold. Previous owner put an aluminum plate on and it's leaking. The gasket is bad but I checked the plate with a straight edge and it isn't flat. Are steel plates better? Anyone suggest where to get a good one?

    Any thoughts on this PD140 turbo replacement? I might replace/rebuild my stock BRM Borg Warner turbo but a stock OEM replacement is $850 and a rebuild around $450. The price on this one seems too good to be true. Does it mean it's probably made in China and should...

    Is this alternator clutch pulley bad or is the alternator shaft bent? 2006 Jetta TDI. I hear an annoying squealling or chirping noise when accellerating.
