The valve timing must be out. You will need to verify that the timing marks on your camshaft sprocket(s) are set at the correct position when you rotate the engine to the compression stroke on TDC.

Why *** i need to change cam belt and tensioner at rhe same time? is it a must


You buy a complete kit

That includes the water pump,timing belt,all
idler pulley's ,so you don't have to go back
there when the water pump fails

Just like you replace brake hardware, sometimes,
as it rusts,wears & heat cycles

You do your belt at 140,000 km (84,000 miles) about
every 7 years (12,000 per year)

Water leak at the timing belt cover


Inside the timing belt cover the pulley that the timing belt goes areound other than the crank and the cam is the water pump. You describe the water pump as failed. Remove the belt with the timing belt marks lined up and replce the pump and install a new belt as you reassamble the car and your good to go another 80 thousand miles. Replace the regular belts too and you'll have this area of service qwork all covered and replace the antifreeze mixture while your doing it as pumps don't normally fail until the antifreze is drity and old.

I have a 93 audi 90 series V6 2.8L 5 speed. It needs a timing belt and will not start. What is the easiest way to change the timing belt, and what other components should be changed in order for the...


the only special tools you need are a harmonic balancer puller, and a gear puller (for the cam sprocket), you are probally going to have to remove, the altanator, your belts, a motor mount, timing convers, water pump, and maybe a couple other accessries im missing, as far as what else to change, the water pump, and serpentine belt should always be done with the timing, its not a really hard job, its just tedious, a lot of nuts and bolts, you should not have to readjust anything in the system, unless you motor is what is called an inteference motor, in which case, when the timing belt broke, the piston came up and hit the valves bending them so they dont close properly, which will cause you to have little or no compression on one or some of the cylinder, the best was to check it is while you have the motor stripped down and the belt ready to put back in, it to turn the cam to isolate 1 cylinder at a time close the valves on the cylinder, then put a compression tool on it and turn the crank, if your valves are working properly, you will get some compression from the test, zero compression means bad valves or rings.

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.

Waterpump failure. Rattling and water leaking. Do I just replace waterpump, or do I go all out and replace cambelt and tensioners, timers, seals etc


I'm not sure about Audi 80's, but on A4's you have to pull the whole front of the car off (bumper, headlights, radiators, radiator support panel - the a/c radiator just moves out of the way thanks to long rubber hoses, so not discharge/recharge necessary), but then you get fantastic access and it's really not that hard a job (an hour give or take).
If you are going this far, do the timing belt, thermostat and accessary belts. For an extra $100 in parts, you only pay about another 30 mins labour. And if you're doing it yourself - well, you're there anyway!
If getting done professionally, go to a VW/Audi specialist as they will have the specialist tools necessary for the job - a regular garage WILL NOT!!

Thermostat jammed, car overheating


Probably right between the two banks of cylinders, at the front of the V behind the top of the timing case. Not worked on this engine in particular but thats where they usually are on V6's.

Audi a4 camb timming


Hi,

Audis are not very common in mycountry but from what I can gather:

Themark for the crankshaft gear is on the cover you have to remove inorder to get at the timing belt. The sprocket you may be having troublewith is the intermediate shaft (in front of the water pump) and I don'tbelieve that one matters at all since it doesn't drive any of the cams.The intake cams are driven by a chain off of the exhaust cam shaft soonly the exhaust cam is driven directly by the timing belt.

Additionally, you may benefit from the Audi A4 Service Manual and/or Audi A4 Cabriolet Workshop Manual.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Audi timing belt


It's a complicated job, and usually takes about 8 hours to do the full service if you're familiar with the car's mechanicals, you have a good array of tools (air tools help a lot), you're familiar with what you're doing, and with how to disassemble everything (including removing the front of the car - I'm not joking). There's more to the job than just the belt too - you need to replace the timing belt, timing tensioner, water pump, thermostat, serpentine belt, and serpentine tensioner. If your cam seals are leaking (which is also known to happen), you'd need those and plan for a couple more hours as well, due to the care that must be taken not to scratch or score the cam end caps.
