    Timing Chain tensioner failure? Today we are tearing down an Audi 2.0 TSI engine. This is very similar to the VW TSI engine. Both TSI engines have timing …

    Because it will come up… I mentioned chain stretch several times. This is the common language that is used in the scan tool and repair manual. Technically that is wrong. Chains wear not stretch.

    WHats the mileage on that engine to have so much gunk and valve problems

    This what happen when you choose plastic over metal. Better going back to the iron block era.

    The Engines are alright if you maintain them well and also make sure to drive them warm properly. What we actually did when there was probable impact was that we put fuel in the intake and exhaust shaft and see if the valves are leaking through.

    Be designed a cam where the lobes spin? Only the germans

    I don't like vag at all but if the owners do the proper maintance couldn't they avoid these repairs?

    Today's engines are more fuel efficient and have flex fuel "most of them". And there engine block it's self causes carbine build up around the values inside the engine because today's engines are smaller and run hotter.

    Older engines don't run as hot and don't get as much carbine build up as quick as to days engines and they are fuel efficient but not as much as much fuel efficient as today engines.
    SO ITS LIKE TODAYS ENGINES HAVE WHAT THE OLD ENGINES DON'T HAVE BUT NEED TO HAVE BUT STILL GREAT.
    AND THE OLD ENGINES HAVE WHAT TODAY'S ENGINES DON'T HAVE AND NEED IT. Strange but Tru.

    yeah those TSI engines are just cheap garbage. I had MK6 GTI and it went through like 3 water pumps….

    Quick question, is this the same TSI engine used on 2011 Tiguans?

    What year (generation) is this engine?

    EA888 gen 1,2, or 3?

    I really don't like new vw engines, all previously 1.8 and 2.0 16v engines were bulletproof (KR, PL, 9A, 6A, ABF) and alot more simple

    So Volkswagen can't do a single piece camshaft anymore? How can a camshaft get 90 degrees out of phase without chain or belt actually snapping? That is some "let's design it so it breaks and make it hugely expensive to replace to that you can buy a new one" design.

    Stereotypical four ring circus..lol sorry…we send VWs and Audis to a specialized shop close by for in depth work…

    Just curious, why $4000 of repairs to fix this up? Obviously a fair amount of labour, but are VAG parts that overpriced? From what you describe (just timing and top end) this engine needs valves, replace all seals and gaskets, new timing chain & tensioners and that water pump. Or is it cheaper to just get a reconditioned head?

    Great video! Very informative.

    What a nightmare. The oldest vw engines are much better, much reliable, 1.8t 20v or vr6

    Is this part of the MQB family in the 2015+ GTIs?
