Blauparts is pleased to make available an 'Enhanced Version' of our industry changing 'Valve Cover Cam Chain Tensioner Gasket Kit' for the Audi A8 4.2L V8.
This enhanced version will include the same parts as the 'Base Version' valve cover cam chain tensioner gasket kit, but with the additions of the cam chain tensioner pads for both driver and passenger side cam chain tensioners and cam chain tensioner compression tool 3366.
Cam Chain Tensioner Pads:
The cam chain tensioner pads become brittle due to age and heat cycles causing them to crack and break. This can cause reliability concerns for most higher mileage (120,000+ miles) Audi A8 4.2L owners. If left unchecked a cracked or broken cam chain tensioner pad can lead to camshaft chain failure, causing engine damage such as bent valves, camshaft problems, cam chain tensioner failure.
This tool allows for the compression of the cam chain tensioners. Tension between the camshaft chain and the cam chain tensioner can be relieved providing proper removal and installation of the cam chain tensioners and camshafts. Not using tool 3366 may cause damage to the camshafts, cam chain tensioners, and cam chain tensioner pads.
These additions will greatly help in the efficient service of the common cylinder head oil leaks associated with the cam chain tensioners. You may also want to consider installing this kit during a complete timing belt service as much of the timing belt dis-assembly labor is necessary to properly replace many of these components. This can allow for a substantial savings in the long term.
