When it comes to Audi service, the timing belt or the timing chain are some of the most crucial systems to pay attention to. We all know about timing belt replacement, but what if your Audi has a timing chain? Aren’t they supposed to last for the lifetime of the vehicle?
In theory, a timing chain should never have to be replaced. In reality, though, it turns out that some makes, and Audi in particular, may need timing chain replacement. While timing chains typically do not break, they do stretch out. As a result, timing might be off, and your Audi may suffer engine misfire, or you can hear rattle from the engine area. Problems starting your vehicle can also occur due to a timing chain being stretched out.
If you notice any of the above symptoms, it’s time to visit your friendly mechanic. Timing chain diagnosis and replacement is not a do-it-yourself job. It requires special tools, training, and years of experience.
