Audi A4 Timing Belt Replacement for 1.8T 20 Valve Engine

Audi A4 Engine Bay 2.0T FSIThe Audi A4 1.8T 20 valve engine is driven by a timing belt system which links the cylinder head, camshafts, and crankshaft to run in sync. This Audi A4 timing belt system consists of a wear resistant, high strength, corded/molded rubber timing belt (a.k.a. Audi A4 toothed belt). There's also an assortment of tensioners and idler rollers to guide and tension the A4 1.8T timing belt.

It's very important to service your 1.8T 20 valve timing belt. The timing belt, tensioner, and idler components eventually reach the end of their recommended service life. The 1.8T A4 is an interference engine (a.k.a. non-clearance engine). If the A4 1.8T timing belt fails, the timing belt system that links the cylinder head, camshafts, and crankshaft no longer run in sync. Close tolerance engine designs allow for the cylinder head valves to hit the top side of the pistons. Audi A4 timing belt failure on these engines will results in catastrophic engine damage (i.e. bent valves and in some cases cracked pistons).
