Timing Chain & Tensioner Replacement

Is your 2009-2013 Audi A4, A5, or Q5 over 100,000 kms?
Then it’s a good time to consider getting your timing chain & tensioner replaced.

The Problem: Although the timing chain itself is stated as a non-serviceable component, which is designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle, the timing chain tensioner can over-extended to the point where it can no longer produce the required amount of tension on the chain. This can cause the timing chain to “skip”, causing the valve train to spin freely. This MAY cause the valves to hit the pistons which would result in engine failure.

With the photos below you can see where the timing chain is located in your vehicles engine.


The Solution: Owasco Audi is introducing a timing chain and tensioner replacement package, including all necessary parts and labour.

Our Service Includes: Removing and replacing the timing chain, tensioner, guides, and gaskets and top it off with a complementary wash and vacuum for $1,799 + tax.

We offer complementary shuttle service from Clarington to Ajax and as north as Brooklin. You can also enjoy complementary snacks and beverages in our “quattro Café” while you wait for your service, or you can take advantage of our in-house rental vehicles starting at $39.95 + tax per day.
