The 2.0T TSI engine found in 2009+ model year Volkswagen’s & Audi’s have moved away from a traditional “timing belt”, which had a regular service interval of approximately every 70,000 to 80,000 miles. The newer TSI engines have moved to a “timing chain”, which VW / Audi have stated as a non-servicable item and should last the life time of the vehicle.
The service team at Redline Speed Worx (RSW) has increasingly begun seeing vehicles that have reached approximetly 80,000 miles and religiously followed the dealerships’ prescribed 10,000 mile oil change interval, coming into our facility suffering the symptoms of a failed timing chain tensioner.
The manufacture has recognized the issue of 2.0T TSI Timing Chain Failure, as a result a revised timing chain tensioner has been put to market as an “update” or “replacement” part. The service team at Redline Speed Worx (RSW) has taken this a step further to ensure the longevity of your engine. Our Service Department has put together a complete timing chain service / kit for the 2.0T TSI / TFSI engine comprised of all the factory updated parts!
