Timing belts > Chains

Timing belts are made to be serviceable and can be replaced easily and cheaply and regular intervals. Timing chains are for wrenchlets afraid of doing preventative maintenance and they're not at all easily serviceable. Also I have a non interference engine, so cope and seethe some more about it. Just pulling your timing chain

        This.
        It only gets addressed when it's too late, namely when the chain jumps a tooth or guide/tensioner has failed and then you need to replace everything

            Why do these motors eat chains so bad? I freshened up a 3.6 with 156k miles and both guides were broken and them along with the tensioner rails had very deep scoring from the chains. Such a huge achilles heel on these motors.

            I have no idea, other than just oem crappy plastic guides. Mines a 12v stuck in a mk3 GTI, first and last vw I'll ever own. Would've loved to pick up a newer Passat or whatever still had the last iteration of vr.
            I chalk it up to typical "German engineering" where your supposed to just get another car after the lease period or religiously maintain it

        if your timing is within spec the only maintenance a chain needs is frequent oil changes, which you should be doing anyway

    Come back when you have a career, wife, children and a home to look after and tell us how much better it is to stop everything so you can switch out some gay ass limp belt every so often.
    Also, dont forget that belts tend to tempt manufacturers to engineer engines with wet belts because "muh modern materials"

      Maybe an electric pod is more your style if you don't like owning and working on your car yourself
      Better deal with that chain, I think I hear a rattle!

        No, I dont like inferior engineering. Wtf do you want plastic and rubber everywhere?
        I'd rather run timing gears anytime over some gay ass belt.

      Timing chains are consistently neglected as a result of the durability, Timing belts just get changed as part of regulsr maintenance. Timing chains are the "lifetime oil" of timing. Serviceability > durability in the long run.

        yeah but a chain will never snap and wreck your valves, it will misfire and refuse to run long before that.

    Timing belts are stupid trash, break easily if anything abrasive gets to the timing belt like rock dust. Its idiotic design that the timing belt needs to replaced every 4-8 years.
    Properly built timing chains are forever better than any timing belts. I take timing chain any day over timing belt.

    >Audi V8.
    Doesnt surprise me because its Audi/VW engine. from 2007+ years VW have purposely built their engines to be complicated as possible because they dont want car owners to repair/maintain their own cars, they want car owners to pay for the mechanic to repair maintain people cars. They also want people to replace their cars more often. VW tried to build engines with timing chains around 2006-2012 but completely failed as result large amount of engines blew up due to premature timing chain and tensioner failures. So they discontinued building engines with timing chains and then went back into building engines with timing belts.

    this is my timing chain setup on my car, to get at it i have to jack the car up, remove the wheel and remove the belt tensioner+crank pulley

    The BASED part of timing belts is how they force wrenchlets to sell their WRXs at 110k miles for dirt cheap.

    All I need to do is pull the entire engine, swap the head gaskets, re-shim the valve buckets,then install a new water pump and timing system.

    It's a piece of cake anybody could do with a screw driver and a single jackstand. Easy money

    Doesn't seem like much different. Timing chains appear to stretch as the links between each chain get worn so you have to replace it or risk hitting valves. Belts seem incredibly strong too but certain models having weak belts. Seems like you should change either every about 80k miles.

    Timing chains literally don't wear and "stretch" unless you have nog levels of oil change and maintx
