I have got to say this is quite a difficult job to undertake if you are not a technician, especially as a dealer will only charge a maximum of 4.5 hours to replace the belt and give you a warranty if anything goes wrong at a later date. If you have a good local garage they may be a bit cheaper but check the warranty. However we can provide the relevant info but will need engine code.

there is a special tool as there are no timing marks, in front of the cam gears are plates with two holes in each (for location of tool) there is also a tool that protrudes into the crankshaft position sensor hole.. if you dont have access to the specialty tools , than i would engrave marks on the gears and covers to align to original positions.

I want to replace a new timing belt for 2000 audi a4 quattro 1.8

Unless you have access to alot of specialty tools, I'd have a specialty shop or competent shop do the work. It's time consuming and requires precise tools and settings. Not exactly a job for a novice. Trust me it's not a quick & easy replacement.

Im replacing the water pump, timming belt on my 1996 audi a4 v6 2.8, they told me i need an idler roller and a tetioner roller, are those two the same thing? also what is a relay roller?

The idler pulley and the tensioner pulley are different. You will need special tools to do this job. I just completed doing the timing belt on my own 96 Audi A4 Quattro.Do you have a service manual for your car as this will help you alot. The tools you need are listed in the service manual with complete directions to complete the job. There are complete timing belt kits available that include the tools needed. The reason they recommend changing all the components is because it is often one of the components that fails that causes the timing belt to break.

Timing marks for 3.4 v6 1995 olds cutlass supreme

It doesn't have any marks. Make your own before you remove the belt. If the belt was broke or you already removed the belt then you will have to remove the valve covers and install specialty tools into the ends of the camshafts to line everything up correctly.

Audi A4 1998 DIY service steps/manual

Go to or (look in their Tech area), and there are full procedures on how to do it (it's the timing belt service). It's not a difficult job really, but you may need to get some specialty tools such as Torx bits to do the job.

Make sure that you get G12 coolant from VW/Audi (the pink kind) and if you have some other color in there now, flush it fully before adding the G12. You can order everything you need, including coolant, from (I've used them many times with full satisfaction). Don't waste your money on the advertised cam locking tool - it's very expensive and wholly unnecessary. Its intent is to keep the cams from spinning, but if you position the #3 cylinder (rear passenger side) to top-dead-center on its compression stroke, the cams would have to be hit with a hammer to turn them.

The job is not difficult really. I've done many timing belts on many cars before, so I know what I'm doing overall, but the first time I did an Audi 2.8L V6, it took me a total of 5.5 hours start to finish. Many other cars (like my 300ZX) take that long just to reach the timing belt. As for how these kinds of jobs go, this is a very easy one.

Buzz me back on here or in email at if you have any questions you'd like answered related to this or the rest of your car and I'll do what I can to help you out.

Timing belt

Audi uses several styles of bolts on their cars, and for doing a timing belt, you're going to need a set of Torx bits to use with a ratchet. I bought my set from Advance Auto Parts for $17, and it's served me well in working on the Audi.

Best bet for you is to check out the website - it's dedicated to the pre-1998 12v V6 engine, and it has a tech area with detailed tech procedures, including the timing belt job. The procedure is written up for the A4, but the mechanicals of the engine are the same and the main difference would be the disassembly of the front of the car to get down to the engine. Still, that part should be pretty easy really - the cars are designed to come apart logically and without too much trouble. That site, plus the Torx bits, ratchets, screwdrivers, and wrenches, will get you through the job without trouble.
