Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Volkswagen Jetta 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 139767 miles
I have a 2000 volkswagon Jetta GL with a 2.0L AEG that had the timing belt brake. I started the vehicle to go to the store and it started up and then squealed and then died. I started to crank it for about 4-5 seconds and realized somthing was not right by the way that itwas turning over. I pulled the top half of the timing cover and the belt was shreaded. I pulled of the crank pulley and the rest of the timing cover and found a bolt in the bottom of it. It shreaded the belt and destroyed the crank gear. So I replaced the crank gear and the belt now it will not start. Ok so there is the background now the problem, the timing marks are dead on and it does not start. I pulled all 4 spark plugs and do not see any visual damge to the valves or pistons. The cam Sensor behind the pulley looks good with no visable signs of damage. Any thoughts or advise would be greatly appreciated.
Is there any way that it could be 180 degree's out on the cam side? Just trying to see if there is something that I am overlooking?
I wish I could make a donation but I lost my job last Monday. Can I make a donation without a question at a later date?
