Replacement of the timing belts is a critical maintenance item on most all VW's. Usually start watching the performance begining at about 70,000 miles. Dealer cost for the service is typically in the $600-750 range. Other parts should also be replaced once the timing belt is exposed. A timing belt failure can result in severe damafge to the engine, and can kill most engines when it occurs. Engine replacement is an expensive repair.

Is it an interference or noninterference engine? Think timing chain has broke


Broken timing chain is a very large problem, if it happened while engine is running. Bent/broken valves and such. Makes a LOT of noise, and engine stops immediately.

Your question doesn't include make/model/year, so your question isn't possible to answer. Doesn't really matter, though, if your timing chain broke. That's pretty rare. Timing belt, yes. Chain, no.

How do you replace timing chain on 2001 ford windstar


If the chain is rattling and the engine still runs, the chain is not broke, but you may have a damaged tensioner that keeps it tight.
The timing parts are behind the timing cover on the passenger side of the engine, behind the water pump.
if you decide to tackle the job, get a repair book and read up on it first to see if you are up to the task.

Timing chain 96 maxima broke


Check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing chain. Replacement for a Nissan Maxima is 60,000 miles.2 Locate the timing chain. Replace it if the automatic chain adjuster (also known as the tensioner) is damaged or worn.3 Release the pressure in the fuel system, drain the cooling system and disengage the negative battery cable. 4 Undo the upper radiator hose, engine drive belts, power steering pulley and pump with bracket, air duct, passenger front wheel and engine side and undercovers, front exhaust pipe, cylinder head front mounting bracket and head cover, rocker cover, distributor and distributor cap and spark plugs.5 Take off the intake manifold support and move the No. 1 piston at "Top Dead Center" (TDC) of the compression stroke.6 Disconnect the cylinder head front cover, water pump pulley, thermostat housing, upper and lower tensioner and slack side timing chain guide, idler sprocket bolt, camshaft sprocket bolts, sprockets, mounting caps and camshafts. 7 Disengage the cylinder head with the manifolds, idler sprocket shaft, upper timing chain, center crossmember, oil pan and strainer assembly, crankshaft pulley, engine front mount and bracket and the front timing cover. Remove the oil seal and unfasten the timing chain cover, idler and crankshaft sprockets and the oil pump drive spacer. 8 Unfasten the timing chain guide. install Your Timing Chain 1 Grease the oil seal lip with engine oil and place it in the front cover. Verify that the No. 1 piston is at "Top Dead Center" (TDC) of the compression stroke. 2 Reconnect the crankshaft sprocket (marks should point toward the engine's front), oil pump drive spacer and timing chain guide and the lower timing chain. Line up all mating marks.3 Hook up the crankshaft sprocket and pulley, lower timing chain, front cover assembly, engine mount and front mounting bracket, oil strainer and pan assembly and center crossmember.4 Reattach the upper timing chain, idler sprocket (to the back side), cylinder head assembly, idler sprocket bolt and exhaust and intake camshafts. Place the intake camshaft knock pin at 9 o'clock and the exhaust pin at noon. Connect the camshaft bearing caps and distributor brackets and secure all mounting bolts.5 Eliminate any old material from the pan and cylinder block mounting surfaces. Rub on a 3.5 to 4.5mm bead of liquid gasket over the oil pan and cylinder block.6 Attach the upper timing chain to the idler sprockets and secure the cylinder head bolts.7 Refill the cooling system. Hook up the negative battery cable and any other disconnected items. Start the engine and look for leaks.

I have a 87 ford tmpo thatt wont start. i have spark and fuel. the water pump belt broke and my son could not get it started ever since. the compression on the plugs is low at 35psi i am trying to...


That has a timing chain not a timing belt.

I am betting that the vehicle was severely overheated when the water pump belt broke causing the loss of compression. If you pull the valve cover and the camshaft is moving than the timing chain is not the problem. It would be highly unlikely for a timing chain to slip and/or keep turning the cam if it did slip.

It is almost impossible to do the timing chain cover with the motor in the car. You will need to remove the sway bar mounts from the sub frame and the bracket that protects the fuel pressure regulator. You will than be able to get the motor low enough to remove the crank pulley.

Very bad rattle noise in top of a 4.0 overhead cam .gas engine but sounds like a diesel !


Sounds like a bad timing chain probably in the passenger side rear of the head. If it the one in the front on the other side that one is not too bad but if its the one in the back on the passenger side its a big job. (have to pull the engine out of the Explorer) Its the chain that runs the cam. The guides go bad and make it rattle like a son of a gun but will still seem to run okay. Stop running it, if the chain jumps your engine is shot. At the point you are at it only needs a chain and new guides. Hope this helps good luck. If you have any more questions feel free to ask. I just did a rear chain in a 1999 overhead cam a week ago and not too many people know much about changing them or timing them.

I am looking for the cylinder sequence (passenger side to driver side...) for a 2007 jetta 2.5???


This is a 5 cylinder engine. From passenger side to driver it is cylinder 5-4-3-2-1. The timing chain is on the transmission side so the sequence is opposite common engines. The firing order is 1-2-4-5-3.

Timing chain


Timing chain does not need to be replaced like a timing belt. It will only need to be replaced if it starts making noise or causing problems
