Good day,I need to replace tensioner on my audi a4 tdi,My problem is to check if any valves are damaged and how to set timing again

If your belt broke you'll need to replace the head Audi's have non-interference engines so when belts snap it causes all kinds of havoc

How to set timing on a injection pump on a 1.9 tdi jetta 2003 did not use the tools on the crank and pin broke off in the pump so i think my timing is out on the car doesnt want to start

Go to a site for tools for the TDi and get the proper tool set. You need a scanner to properly set the timing as well.

Doing it by marking the sprockets and hoping is a dangerous undertaking, to say nothing of costly if you do it wrong.

When you have set the timing at the mark in the flywheel, with the cam lock in back of the head, the pin in the injection pump and tensioner loosened up, you can onstall the cam belt and tighten the tensioner so the V lines up with the pointer.

Now remove the locks and hand turn the engine over two times and recheck the marks..okay ? If yes, then you can run the motor.

Now plug in the scanner and wait until coolant over 85C and look at timing. Adjust as necessary.

If EVER this engine is cranked with timing of cam off over 8 degrees, the valves get bent.

How to change timing belt on a 1987 ford ranger 2.0L 4C 5speed

You need to get a manual. Try the Haynes manual for your car. Try autozone; generally available for around $20. This is not the type of thing that can be covered here in enough detail to do you any good.
Buy new timing belt. Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove timing belt cover. make sure cylined #1 is set at TDC. making sure all componets are properly alligned and losen tensioner to remove old timing belt. Install new timing belt. Tension belt, ensure all components are alligned properly, replace timing belt covers and reconnect battery.

My jetta 4 1.9 tdi smokes and no power on mornings ends on 60km/h but after leaving it in the sun for 1 to 2 hours it run well again

When was the last valve adjustment?
An old timing belt and T-belt guide will offset the timing.
Can a shop do a compression test on the engine?
Do a motor flush before the next oil change to free up the rings and clean out the head.
This is the inexpensive method to restore compression.

If it's the org. engine it will has over 80,000 miles on it.

It's normal to has the valve stem seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the seals.

It land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.

The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner.
This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.

The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional service the head.
Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.
