Question about 2004 Audi A4
I have a 2002 audi a4 1.8T and it broke the timing belt, I removed spark plugs and turned engine to where no pistons were on top and turned the camshafts with a wrench it seemed to turn good and I did not hit any spots where it would lock up. cranked the engine, it cranked smooth and even, tried to look down the spark plug holes and did not see any spot where the valves might have played tag. what's my chances on not removing the head????
Have someone perform a leak down test on each cylinder. This will tell you if you possibly bent a valve on any of the cylinders. If you did you need to remove the cyl. head to have it looked at. If the leak down test is good on all cylinders you should be good with just replacing the timing belt and tensioner. The likely hood that you didn't bend a valve is slim since that motor is an interference motor.

I will give you 1500$ for it, you will need a new engine. these are interference motors- you bent valves and damaged pistons
