-- My car's timing chain snapped two weeks ago

The Audi's timing chain went about two weeks ago - Oddly it happened after the dealer had it (the next morning from getting it back, actually) - It really doesn't matter - you have no legs vs. a dealer and besides they'd have to dissect the engine to access that area. So in this case I actually do think it was just a mere coincidence.

Anyhow; ?? I'm wondering if anyone has recovered a vehicle from this timing chain issue ?? - again it's an 06 Audi A4 3.2

I bought a really fast vehicle & all - but black'ey can't be buried yet.

anyone else gone through this? I forget the details regarding the engine's structural assembly. There are two types - one where you're basically in a repairable situation or two - you're ****ed.

Help

Please....

the way I understand it is - it's like a bike-chain that snakes throughout the center of the motor and it's tension mends (for lack of a better word) the engine's components together - when it snaps - the engine inners under fold - pardon my n00b terminology, I'm just doing the best I can w/ the lingo. Jason Sauto should show up soon, i'm hoping.

My timing belt broke on my 3.0 toyota truck while driving down the hwy. Put a new one on and she's as good as new. I think the two motors you are talking about are interface and non interface. Are you sure the the chain is broken? They're known to stretch. Aren't there some good Audi forums on the net?

yeah - in all honesty there are some good Audi Forums, it's broke - or off it's track, I was told by the dealer that I needed a new engine - somehow - i'm not buying that. but again, I am really just uncertain.

on my last service receipt/work order it says something like - "Timing Chain - Engine repair, start with motor-mounts" ..or something like that as if to say 'it's a mission'

On some engines, if it breaks, you can tear up valves and push rods. I think that is on engines with overhead cams.

I hate to say it but if you're asking questions like this on CP then unfortunately you're prob going to just have to bend over and let the dealership slide blackey inside ya.

I had a VW rabbit that that happened to though. That is the only reason I knew that.
