On my way back to the office from lunch break, on the interstate my engine suddenly went limp, DOA. Pulled over to the shoulder, got a tow to my local mechanic. No engine compression. A few hours later after pulling stuff apart it was found that some bolt had come off inside the timing belt housing causing the belt to overheat and shred. TDI engines are toast when timing belt goes.
So now I am in a scramble for a new car. (The old VW Kelly Blue Book valuation was only 3k - the car had 226,000 miles on odometer).
