Audi 2.0T Timing Chain and Tensioner Failure

The Audi A4 2.0 TFSI is a timing chain drivin engine.  The Audi A4 timing chain engines have a common problem with the timing chain tensioner failing. 

 When theseaudi_2.0_timing_chain tensioners first start to fail the engine can become noisy and have a grinding or rattling sound.

If you ignore this problem the chain will start to rub through the timing cover causing more damage.

If the tensioner fails and the chain jumps time the cylinder head will need to be removed and the valves will need to be replaced.

The dealer gets around $3500 to $4500 to replace the timing chains and tensioners.  If the valves are not damaged we can usually do the entire job for $2800

The repair requires the front bumper and lock carrier to be removed.  The valve cover, timing cover and balancer need to be removed to access the timing chains and tensioner.
There are also several special tools required to set the cam timing.
