Audi A8 Timing Belt Replacement for 4.2L 40 Valve Models

Audi S6 Timing Belt Replacement 4.2L 40 Valve

The 4.2 liter 40 valve V8 engine was used in 2002-2003 Audi S6 C5 Platforms. The 40V V8 engine is driven by a timing belt system which links the cylinder heads, camshafts, and crankshaft to run in sync. This Audi S6 timing belt system consists of a wear resistant, high strength, corded/molded rubber timing belt (a.k.a. Audi S6 toothed belt). There's also an assortment of tensioners and idler rollers to guide and tension the Audi S6 timing belt.

It's very important to service your 4.2L Audi S6 timing belt. The timing belt, tensioners, and idler components eventually reach the end of their recommended service life. The C5 S6 4.2L 40V is an interference engine (a.k.a. non-clearance engine). If the Audi S6 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. Timing belt failure on these engines usually results in catastrophic engine damage (i.e. bent valves and in some cases cracked pistons).
