Chain tensioner adjustment, 2001 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.

Audi a4 1998 tapping noise only when idles under valve cover


Sounds like a bad valve lifter or a valve out of adjustment. It's probably a bad hydraulic valve lifter. In idle, when the oil pressure is lowest, it is not filling with oil. When the motor revs up, oil pressure rises and fills the faulty lifter.
If you do have mechanical lifters, the valve is probably out of adjustment. If you do car work, pull the valve cover and see if it's adjustable. Of course, you'll need the specs from VW/Audi.
Otherwise, it's probably a shop job.
Sorry.

Backfiring into the valves


if you just had the timing belt changed then I suspect that the belt was not installed properly and is probably out at least one tooth. Possibly the cam chain tensioner is the culprit.

After replacing the valves,timing belt and the water pump my Audi a4 2001 model. Started misfiring,the specialist checked the timing of the camshaft and the timing chain everything looked ok but continued...


Does it have spark plug wires? If so, check top make sure one isn't grounded or resting on another spark plug wire. If coil-on-spark plug, check for bad cam sensor... Does computer bring up any codes?

The engine makes clicking sound, knocking noise when car is standing after few minutes. the noise goes away when rpm's go up or when car is driving. it is 2001 a4 turbo manual. can it be cam chain...


it could be low oil pressure. timing adjuster would make sounds all the time. if oil pressure is low it can make ticking or clicking sounds, and with turbo you need good oil flow.

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 .
