I've got a blown head gasket on my '02 Jetta TDI (with 301k miles). I had the head replaced a year and a healf ago, and I'm a little concerned my mechanic didn't torque it down right. I think I've warped the head when it overheated, so may need a new head, too. Anyway, I'm looking to have someone else do it this time, just in case, and would love to find someone at least familiar with diesels running WVO.
I'm in Clarksburg, MD about halfway between Washington, DC and Frederick, MD.
Can anyone recommend a good diesel mechanic around here?
'02 Jetta TDI Manual, currently at about 301,000 mi
'06 Greasecar kit, put in at about 180,000 mi
'02 Jetta TDI auto, currently at 195,000 mi
'08 Greasecar kit, put in about 120,000 mi
that makes just under 200,000 miles on grease
Also heat my house with WVO, using a Kingbuilt boiler
You could try th TDIClub forum. They have recommended mechanics, or gurus, but make sure you find one comfortable with WVO. Some on there hate it.
