Audi A4 Timing Belt Replacement for 2.8L 30 Valve Models

Audi A6 Timing Belt Replacement 2.8L 30 Valve

The 2.8 liter 30 valve V6 engine was used in 1998-2001 Audi A6 (US) C5 chassis. The 30V engine is driven by a timing belt system which links the cylinder heads, camshafts, and crankshaft to run in sync. This Audi A6 timing belt system consists of a wear resistant, high strength, corded/molded rubber timing belt (a.k.a. Audi A6 toothed belt). There's also an assortment of tensioners and idler rollers to guide and tension the Audi A6 timing belt.

It's very important to service your 2.8L Audi A6 timing belt. The timing belt, tensioner, and idler components eventually reach the end of their recommended service life. The C5 A6 2.8L 30V is an interference engine (a.k.a. non-clearance engine). If the Audi A6 timing belt fails, the timing belt system that links the cylinder heads, 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 A6 timing belt failure on these engines usually results in catastrophic engine damage (i.e. bent valves and in some cases cracked pistons).
