Any in the Blacksburg VA area. I have a 2004 TDI that will likely need a timing belt in 30k miles(about what I drive a year).

Thanks!

You should post in the VW MKIV-A4 TDIs (VE and PD) category ! This area is to find a Guru. All Gurus are not listed here.
If you were not so far away, I'd be glad to do your TB;

DIESEL LAND in Golden CO is officially closed. Anuthee is heading in a different direction in life. Such a great guy and even better shop, going to be missed.

Anyone else have recommendation out here in the Denver area?

On the Western Slope and need clutch help!

Need a TDI Guru near Glenwood Springs?
Was about to call Anutnee but saw your post was 13 minutes ago.
I can travel - I got a Stealership quote of 2800 to fix the clutch on my 2012 JSW…
Could really use a point in the right direction myself.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news here! What’s funny is that I am currently purchasing a 12 JSW with 53k miles and will need a few things done.

A clutch isn't really diesel related, so you should be able to find a good independent VW/Audi shop out there...

Any good shops in the Spokane WA area? Have been having trouble find any recommendations.
Europro in the Valley is probably the most professional and knowledgable when it comes to TDIs in the whole Spokane/CDA area, they just cost an arm and a leg. Their parts department is wildly overpriced, but they know what they're doing.

Ordinarily we ask satisfied customers to recommend shops. And typically these shops specialize in Volkswagens and Audis, or on German cars of all brands. The shops that work on all makes and models often do not have the expertise or the right tools to work on TDIs.

Having said that, sometimes shops like yours are the only option in states like Louisiana. Given a choice, I'd rather have you work on my TDI than go to a VW dealership.

There are excellent sources of parts from trusted Vendors that are members of the TDI Club..........

Yes, and I use them too but shops have overhead and margin to think about as well as liability. Worldpac and the dealer can an do supply OE and OEM parts to shops at a WHOLESALE level.

As a shop ownerI have to be able to issue a warrantyAnd I have to have trust in the part I'm selling
And you can definitely trust the quality of any parts from Cascade German, idparts, and metalmanparts, all of which quietly support this FREE website. Do you see any ads here? Are you a supporting member?

When a customer expects to pick up his car at 5 o'clock, the mechanic cannot wait several days for a part to arrive from one of our recommended vendors. Especially if WorldPac delivers two or three times every day.

Dealer is and world pack is a lot faster to get parts in and cars back on the road

What have you had done up there? What parts do they use (specifically wondering about timing belt/water pump). I need to get mine done and have been wondering who’s any good in AZ. I’m in Mesa.
