-- 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....

Some motors are interference motors, meaning that the valves and pistons are capable of occupying the same space. Broken timing chain/belt on an interference motor usually means destroyed valves and damaged pistons. My old 3000GT V6 DOHC had an interference motor, but my 92 Toyota I4 pickup did not.

ya, this is correct. unfortunately SR, I would suggest you cut to the fix and have somebody replace the motor with a used motor. I'd expect to pay 6 - 7 grand total.

40-50 years ago this was true, now timing belts breaking are not a death sentence.

How so? With an “interference” engine yes it is very likely a death sentence, and being an Audi DOHC V-6 it’s most likely an interference engine.

Since **** you, that's when.

Sorry, been wanting to drop that for a while now.

Usually, if your timing belt/chain snaps, you're pushing rods, warping heads, and your engine is a long goner. Now, that said, I'm a car retard, but I do know that much. I'm sure there are exceptions, but that's the general rule.

Blew one in 97 And it was the end of an 89 Honda civic. Billowed smoke.

Blew the ****ing engine. Worthless.

Purchased a 91 Honda Civic SI and loved that car. Perhaps more than any other relationship I've ever been in. When I parted with it I felt guilt.

Sadness and guilt.

Finally sold it and purchased a 98 Civic and I still live with and despise this POS vehicle...

Looking through Craigslist, there are a ton of Hondas on there that got new engines around 120K miles, which is most likely from broken timing belts. Apparently people forget about this whole "routine maintenance" thing.
