Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed my timing belt and when I started it it
sounds really rough and wants to die. What could

You will need to adjust the timing, you will need a timing gun, to adjust you will turn the distributor to retard or advance the timing. Never done it, look who yo adjust on the web before trying

no distributor on a 2002 Jetta.. quite possible timing belt put on with the timing marks not lining up
