  1. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    2011 Touareg TDI 144,000 Miles. I get my oil changed not at a dealer. About 8 months ago they showed me what they thought to be a very slow rear main leak. I had my oil changed again and they pointed it out again. Since this should be covered I took it to the dealer last week to have it checked...

    Why does the HPFP sprocket need to be locked when replacing the timing chain? Thanks in advance.
  3. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Have been asked to look at this vehicle, for a friend. I am an experienced shade tree mechanic of, well let's just say a very long time... I'm over 60 years old. However, I have not done much work on VW's and have come to realize there are some things that are different on these vehicles...
  4. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    hi All My 2012 (7P) Touareg is having timing chain rattle at start up. It has been there for the last 2 years and now lasting for a longer period. Few times, I have noticed it lasting for 2-3 minutes and the goes away. I have decided not to wait any longer (and get in to a bigger trouble) and...
  5. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    I have recently acquired a 07 touareg with the v6. The timing chain needs to be replaced and I was wondering what replacement kit you guys recommend. I am also wondering what else I should replace while the engine is removed. (Already changing the intake gaskets) Thanks for the advice

    I'm looking at purchasing a 2013 Touareg TDI LUX with 103,000 miles. I've never owned a diesel but read enough about these where I believe I want one. The one I've looked at is in really good condition and seems to run really well. I've read quite a bit about failing timing chains in the 3.0 TDI...

    Thanks for your help in advance forum members. Can anyone please confirm whether the 2008 v6 has a timing belt, or timing chain? The owners manual seems to reference a belt, but I've seen several posts here indicating it's a chain. Just a quick belt/chain answer will do. Thanks again!

    According to a french forum it could be possible to measure the timing chain stretch with VCDS. Go into groups 208 and 209 at idle and note the 3rd value. Both should be between -6 and 6 AND the two values should not be further apart than 4. In my case, both values is -6 and then the...
  10. General Maintenance & Repair
    The repair books say I have to remove the engine from my 2005 3.2 VR6 Touareg to replace the camshafts. It also says the engine and transmission are removed in one piece, out the bottom of the car. I don't have a lift so that is not an option. Does anyone know if I can pull just the motor out...
  11. General Maintenance & Repair
    I have had ongoing issues with codes that related to ignition coils. VW said problem was wrong oil and all short trips. Changed coils, flushed engine, used 5W-40 synthetic but no fixes lasted. VW said a rebuild would correct problem. Finally they agreed to pay 80% although out of warranty. I had...
