Dear,sir my AUDI A4 T1.8 S line was the time bealt cut once i was drive it on low speed about 30 to 40km now i feel worry about my car engine is it ok ? do i need just to chang the Timing Belt only ?

Hi Sam,
The 1.8 Audi engine is referred as "interference" style engine. The timing belt breaks, then the pistons and the valves can "interfere" with each other. Actually hitting each other. Possibly bending valves and or cracking pistons. So--------
Some money will need to be spent to find out if further damage other than the timing belt replacement.
This process can get real expensive.
Check around carefully and ask a lot of questions before proceeding.
You could spend many, many, hundreds of U.S. dollars with no results if you are not careful.

I have a 2006 Audi A4. Weird noise.

Could be a broken motor mount, so that one of the pulleys is scraping a shroud or some other fixed item.
Examine the area around the pulleys and see if there is bare metal below one of them.
If so, have the motor mounts checked.

How to change a timing belt on an audi a4 1996 is it easy

It is fairly easy, you do need a special cam alignment too, it can be purchased online for $99. You also need a 2 jaw puller to remove the cam gears.

Care must be taken when servicing this engine as it is an interference engine and if the belt is installed wrong the valves will be bent.

Cambelt sliped or broken. does the valves bend.

what is the liter size of your engine? the 1.8L is an interference engine. generally all Audi engines are interference engines, and timing belt breakage can bend valves, the sure way to determine without detailed maintenance information, install a new belt, once the belt is on immediately run a compression test, if timing marks are good and compression fails, valves are bent.
