So my check engine light came on and my valves have been noisy so I decided to look into it today. Found three lifters worn through the rest dished. Looks like time for cam and lifters. Any tips best one to buy for the price? Timing belt has 25 k shame to change and shame not to.

That very common in the TDI,

From what I understand the cam wasn't ground flat and it causes the valve train to eat it self. I have a link somewhere

I believe its castrol 5-40 w its the only non dealer I could find with the certification for Vw. I guess I need to add the zinc to it. Reading online about how common it is I feel fortunate it lasted as long as it did. Read about people doing dealer oil change and only getting 150k. Car should run way better I figure at least 3 valves was barely opening based on lifter condition.

My guess is its been wearing bad for a while just finally got to a point it was obvious something was wrong. I know once the hardness wears off then the wear accelerated. If anyone is curious I was able to see the dishing and wear without removing the cam only surprise was the holes in lifters thinking every timing belt you should pull valve cover and look for wear.

Does anybody know torque specs ? Also need head bolt torque (dont ask ) yes I bought new bolts parts should be here this weekend. Love driving my truck until I have to fill up then I miss my Jetta. Anyone changed cam curious if I will see mileage gain. Been 38 to 43 since I got it depending on idle time and if it is winter blend.

Installed today went with eBay cheapo and new bolts parts was around $200. Did break in changed oil then pulled out vagcom set timing. Took it around the block seems to run better. I can hear the turbo again idles smooth and quite. Curious to see if fuel mileage improves my best was 44 with 38 to 42 average I drive 75 to 80 mph commuting.
