View Full Version : urgent help from tdi experts

hello everyone,
i have just bought a vento tdi 90bhp,the car is a minter and only done 37000 miles,the guy who had it was an old boy who only drove 4500 miles per year.
there is a catch though,the diesel engine is very very noisy,so noisy that when i got home last night my ears were hurting.
the car sounds like there is no sound proofing,there is lots of vibration and resonance at low revs,the guy i bought it off say he had the belts changes by a toyota mechanic at the dealership where he works so i wondering if maybe the timing is slightly out or maybe if how the car has been driven all these years is to blame,can anybody help.

You've not told us much about the car, but as I recall, on the older models, the timing is done initially with locking pins, then refined with VAGCOM or the dealer system.
If the belt was done at a non-specialist then that was probably not done.
