#5 of 8 broken timing chain
Jul 24, 2008 (9:04 pm)
my son's VR6 timing chain and tensioner broke recently. does this mean that the valves have bent as someone has suggested? What are the chances that even though sprockets seem worned that the valves are OK?

i know that it has been a year since this, I am online researching because my son's 2002 jetta vr6 purchased used in 06 has had 3 timing chains to slip and cause at least 6,000 dollars to date, it is in the shop right now for the third time awaiting cost for this one...I wish we would have taken pictures, he was away from home at school when the first two happened, now the third one....I have contacted vw of america each time, no help from them. what did you finally end up doing? my son still owes 8,000, he has driven it for maybe a whole 6 months of the three years of ownership, he continues to pay payments and insurance. We dont know what to do...
