I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Pleaseunderstand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problemwith the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computerdata/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch thevehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. I am also going todirect you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help youthrough it.Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.
i do need more information .
let me know
does the cranking noise sound the same or different while cranking?
i do beleve that the timing belt tensioner has loosened up and then skipped (poor workmanship) or a fuel issue where the fuel pump has failed . did the check engine light come on before it stalled?
sorry lost power last night with the storms!! just got back online
when you turn the key on does the check engine light come on? (that will tell me that the ecu is on line)
please let me know !!!
ok that is a good sign. it really sounds like poor workmanship on their end . can't say 100% because i'm not there where i can look at the vehicle
the 2.0 that you have is an interference motor!!!
hold on so this had this issue before the timing belt replacement?
at least bent the valves
very slim. less than 10 % chance of no damage
ask them if they have a borescope to see if the valves touched the pistons!!! just for kicks tell them that my cousin is a VW Master certified tech but at the other end of the states!!! for a premium service i can assist in this with a phone call if needed.
If there is no evidence of valves hitting the pistons then you may have a chance but slim.
THE VISUAL WITH THE BORESCOPE YOU DO NOT NEED THE BELT BUT . TO REALLY DO A COMPRESSION AND LEAKDOWN CHECK THE TIMING BELT NEEDS TO INSTALLED TO MAKE SURE!!
