If a professional is doing it (ASE Certified), on a 4 cyl, it's a BIG job and can take up to 5 hours. It may take someone else, 6-7 depending on their knowledge.

SOURCE: how do i change time on clock on 2005 audi a6 quattro s line

I think I can help you. I just did this on mine yesterday because my clock runs a few minutes fast each month. It was somewhere bizarre - sorry I'm not near the car to be more clear. I think I picked Sound, Settings and for some odd reason, it was there, rather than in Car, Settings. NOOO - it was in Tuning - click the AM/FM button, then Settings. I've only had it for a few months, but you'd think I'd have that one figured out due to re-setting it.

SOURCE: Audi A6 3.0 tdi Quattro 2005, glow plug light comes on, limp mode

16619 -Engine boost condition - Limit not reached. Check intake hoses/ connections for leaks. Check Turbo charger waste gate regulating valve/ waste gate working correctly. Must move freely when accelerating, won't achieve full boost if waste gate sticking open. Check Turbo impeller turning freely, oil feed pipe for turbo can get blocked causing impeller to seize. Engine compact, not easy to access these components.

How do I know if my 2005 Audi A6 4.2L Qauttro has a timing belt or timing chain?


Chain. A little trick for finding answers like this: Go to the web site for an auto parts supplier (Rock Auto, Autozone, NAPA, etc.) and look up your car. They will only list parts specific to your year, model and engine/tranny. If neither is listed, it means demand is too low for them to stock it, or it is a dealer only part. Alternatively, call an Audi dealer service dept. and ask for a price on replacing it, or call directly to the parts department. They will tell you which it is and give you a price. Quattros are a solid ride. Miss ours. Happy motoring!

Working on a 2000 Audi A8. Need info on changing


If it's anything like the six cylinder engines from Audi, which I'm very familiar with, and from what I remember of the V8, you have a timing belt that drives the water pump, crank, and exhaust cams, and also includes a tensioner and an idler roller. The timing chains come into play in the cylinder heads. What Audi did was to only drive the exhaust cams off of the crank, using the timing belt, and inside each cylinder head there is a timing chain assembly that is used to drive the intake cams off the exhaust cams. On a periodic service (like the timing service) you only need to do the timing belt. The timing chains are only replaced if the tensioners fail - you'll know this by a diesel-like clatter from the cylinder heads. Failure of the chain drive assemblies is very rare, which is good because they're incredibly expensive (on the V6 engines they're upwards of $700 each). If you're doing this job because it's due based on mileage, don't touch the timing chains in the cylinder heads - only change the timing belt, tensioner roller, relay arm, hydraulic tensioner, idler pulley, water pump, and serpentine belt. You can leave the chains alone.

Knocking when first start engine


Depending on the period of time and intensity of the knock ? If it is a rapid short ,loud knock then disappears altogether you may be dealing with a cam chain tensioner that is loosing oil pressure when the car is standing. A loose cambelt tensioner can increase the noise .

I am replacing a cam chain and need to know the settings and best way to do it


The 1.8T is very common in the US. We don't have any diesels here in the A4, but the 1.8T is all over the place.

What exactly do you need to know? You were posting it in the title to your question but it got cut off and I don't know exactly what you're looking for in terms of info for changing the cam chain. If you mean the timing belt, that's a belt, not a chain. I thought that the 1.8T drove both cams off of the belt, unlike the 2.8, where only the exhaust cams are belt-driven by the timing belt, and the intake cams drive off their respective exhaust cams via a chain and tensioner assembly. If you can clarify this, we can proceed.
