I was working on my girl`s jetta today doing the regular maintenance. while i was at it, i noticed that the timing belt was a little loos, so decided to change it. Now, my question is, it had the CEL about cyl 3 misfire, would it be a bent valve? or what? i am putting new spark plugs and wires to see what happens. Hopefully it wont be a bent valve. knock on wood!!!!!
thanks

Check the compression if you think the valve is bent which would make it run pretty shitty or even not at all. Plugs and wires should do it.

My girl tops yours with a 2000 VR6 5 speed ;)

Go to VWVortex.com with the 8V if you keep having issues with that motor.

thanks!!!!!

and she wants to sell that 2.0 and maybe, trying to convince her to get into maybe a b6 A4 1.8T or maybe a newer jetta with the 1.8t as well.
