Environmentally sound cars such as the space-efficient Volkswagen Passat are made to be maintained in top condition so they can keep on providing impressive levels of mileage. If an issue crops up or a part ought to be replaced, don't economize with a second-rate component. A Volkswagen Passat is worth efficiency-optimized parts to function at peak efficiency. Efficient use of gas comes with the cost of providing maintenance, as your Volkswagen Passat needs to have top-quality parts to run with the highest mileage. For lavish designs at a less expensive price, vehicle buyers go to Volkswagen to meet their vehicle needs. For innumerable years the solid design of Volkswagen vehicles has been the symbol of muscle and workmanship. That Volkswagen in the garage was manufactured using the best quality and expertise; it needs new OEM parts with the same top level of value. If you purchased a performance-optimized car to enjoy its outstanding engine power and performance, back up that investment by buying only the best replacement parts. Maximum power and road performance are dependent on high-quality parts and accessories. Due to the fact that the car's timing chain is always under stress from heat and constant movement, the Volkswagen Passat Timing Chain Tensioner plays a critical role in keeping the timing chain stretched and in place. Symptoms of a failing Volkswagen Passat Timing Chain Tensioner include a noise that appears after the motor warms up and that alters with the speed in the engine. Because it is under constant pressure and use, the Volkswagen Passat Timing Chain Tensioner will eventually need to be replaced, often as soon as twenty thousand miles. It doesn't matter what model you have, we always have the Volkswagen accessories you want. Nobody will bring you a wider selection of exceptional aftermarket parts than we will every day. Should you have any questions about our accessories, our customer service specialists are available to you during business hours - with our standard top-notch customer service!

Research on Timing Chain Tensioner for Volkswagen Passat

The timing chain tensioner is vital to your engine performing at it was designed to. Unfortunately, problems with the part can seriously affect how your vehicle runs. Replacing the component can be expensive and timely, but is often necessary if you want to resolve the issue.

Signs of a Bad VW Passat Timing Chain Tensioner

A worn or malfunctioning tensioner will affect the Volkswagen Passat timing belt or chain. The effects range from a rattling or rumbling, which increases with the engine's speed, or rough running or stalling. You might see the Check Engine Light, or camshaft or crankshaft sensor codes. These aren't problems that will go away on their own, or that you can simply ignore. If you want your vehicle to run like new again, the timing chain tensioner will have to be replaced.

Replacement Procedures

If, for example, your 2003 Volkswagen Passat timing belt or chain goes bad, the entire timing chain set will have to be replaced. That includes the gear set, chains, and guides. Synthetic engine oil can help your timing chain last longer, but that doesn't mean the tensioner won't exhibit problems at some point. Other work may be involved. Replacing a 2008 VW Passat timing chain or belt on a 3.6L V6 engine can run over $700 (the VW 1.8 timing chain tensioner can run at nearly $800). Tensioners themselves are generally under $100. Labor costs will drive the final price up higher.

Potential Timing Chain Tensioner Defects

Although a VW timing chain tensioner recall wasn't formally issued, a 2016 lawsuit cited defects in VW and Audi vehicles. The issue would cause the engine to completely fail. Vehicles affected were the 2008-2012 Volkswagen Passat and other models. In the lawsuit, it was noted that Volkswagen intended the tensioning system to last for 120,000 miles, before repairs were needed. It was also alleged no inspection or maintenance schedules were provided for the system.

What Is a Timing Chain in a Car?

The timing chain serves to synchronize the rotation of the crankshaft and camshaft on the underside of the vehicle chassis. It enables the valves in the engine to open and close at the right intervals, in synch with the intake/exhaust strokes of its cylinders. Timing chains generally don't require maintenance. They do, however, need to be kept at the proper tension, and are just one of the parts that keep the camshaft and crankshaft in sync.

Excessive Timing Chain Tensioner Costs Are Avoidable

If your Passat's timing chain tensioner does need to be replaced, there are ways to avoid draining your bank account. The part can be found by searching PartsGeek.com, which offers automotive parts and accessories for less, exclusively online.
