Hello,
I've been asked to check timing on an OLD 1Z 1995 A80.
Is the TDi timing checker built into VCDS now or do I have to go and find/install the plugin?

Many thanks.

Yes, the TDI timing checker is included with VCDS.

Setting Injection Timing:
The current Release of VCDS contains the TDI Timing Checker. See this page for more information.
This procedure does NOT apply to the PD engines!

  • Engine has to be warm (coolant above 85ºC)
  • Go to Engine Measuring Block 000 (Group 004 for V6 TDI)
  • Switch to Basic Settings
  • Take note of the values in fields 2 (timing) and 9 (fuel temp)
  • Report in the following graph
  • Specification is within the shaded area between the blue and red lines
  • To slightly advance timing, you need to be in the upper portion of the shaded area.
  • Setting is done mechanically, slightly rotating the pump shaft once its three screws have been loosened.
  • It is strongly discouraged to set your timing outside of the specification!
