Question about 2001 Audi A4
Can I replace the timing chain tensioner on a 2001 Audi A4 by simply removing the valve cover? Is there an adjustment? My engine is noisy at idle and I'm getting a CEL code of P0011. I've had the code reset and it comes back. One time it came back as P0012. Which makes me think its the tensioner. How hard is it to adjust or replace?
The tensioner,should be automatic,and if there is a noise,or you are going to go into the timing chain area,you will have to remove the timing cover.And if you do,on this engine,replace all timing components so you will not have to go back into the timing cover.
