2004 passat engine sounds like a deisel all of a sudden and has some engine lag

Hi, depending on engine fitted it is most likely the cam chain tensioner has collaped or failed. On a twin cam engine like a 1.8 t or a 32 valve V6 there is a chain driving a second chain in the rear of the cylinder head. These chains are tensioned by a oil pressure pressurized piston pushing on a bridge under the chain.

If it collapses, the chain/s become very loose and you will hear a loud clacking noise. It can also collapse due to low oil pressure.

VW is familiar with this problem and the repair involves first checking oil pressure, cold thro' warm. If it is around 85 to105 psi cold and 28 to 35 psi warm at idle, then this indicates tensioner piston is faulty or tensioner guide has broken off.

If oil presssure is good and engine is running synthetic it should ...then tensioneris suspect. I have also seen these engines with the screen under the tensioner partly blocked . If on removal of valve cover prooves tensioner has collapsed or guide shoe broken or warn then a new tensioner must be installed.

If oil pressure is too low at under 12 psi at warm idle then oil pump is worn and/or engine is worn. Also low oil pressure can be caused by fuel in the oil making it very thin.

If the screen under the tensioner is partly plugged up, then the oil pan must also be removed and cleaned out otherwise plugging will happen again.

To remove and install the tensioner a SST ( Special Service Tool.) is required to compresse the tensioner piston to allow it to be removed from under the cam chain and again compressing the new tensioner to be installed. Cams or chain do not need removing on this job.

Most import shops can handle this as long as they are equipped with the SST tensioner tool.

I threw a chain today on my husky 61 w/20" bar. I

hi moe.... sometimes when the chain comes off it damages the bar or the chain and causes what you are now experiencing. Check the groove in the bar to make sure it does not have a burr or a spot where the chain is too tight. also check the chain to be sure that there is not a bent part. When you put the chain into the bar, it should spin freely, unless the chain tension is too tight.
Once you check the bar and the chain and repair any damage be sure to generously lubricate the bar and the chain. Then be sure that the chain tension is adjusted so that it is not too loose or too tight. When you raise up on the chain in the middle of the bar it should barely clear the bar.
Joe Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Lotsof knocking no power

If the cam chain jumped then the tensioner is not tight. Timing is way off and valve hit piston. Need to **** case and replace tensioner, dry time then install new piston and pull vales to see if they are bent.

Does 610 electric start engine fit in 610 kick start only frame


It can be done, but will cost an arm and a leg. The main casings will have to be replaced. This means the motor will have to split and rebuit.
I would suggest that you give the motor a good service. This means doing the shims as well.

This is a good motor, and generally do not suffer from starting issues.
If you stuggle, let your local dealer do the necessary servicing.
