    I recently had a 17927 code pop up, and noticed the passenger side (which rattles for 1-2 seconds in cold starts) got louder at operating temp and idle. The ticking changes from normal to noticibly louder as it idles, at different intervals. Just popped the VC off and things look normal...

    Hey guys, finally, after almost 8-10 weeks, I can get back to doing the TB/WP/T-stat, CCTG, CS seals, CS end caps on my 2.8L ATQ. I have a couple of concerns, the most pressing at this second is this torn screen on the driver's side CCT. I haven't gotten to the other CCTG yet, but I am...

    Just picked up the car from the shop and it drove fine for the 1st ride after leaving. The next day the ABS and traction light came on for the first time and then later in the day the CEL came on with a P1340 code. Car is driving fine other than the lights. Mechanic assured me that they counted...

    Holy crap Batman! Thought everything went great on TB and CCT change. Crank and Exhaust cam set to TDC, installed CCT, my son and I double checked for 16 rollers and closed her up. After typical initial clatter, it calmed down to being nice and quite. Took it for a 10 mile spin and it idled and...

    I just finished a TB change (1.8 AWM) and am now about to install a new CCT (slight rattle at idle). In all of the excellent writeups on the forum, no one is installing a new chain. My kit came with one. The current chain looks great after 178,000 miles. Would one have to also remove the exhaust...

    Started the cct replacement, pcv revamp, and vc gasket today. Not. Going. Well. For starters, don't try to replace the pcv system with the intake manifold still on. Just don't. I have small hands and it was a huge pain in the ass. Removing manifold would've been quicker. Secondly, I'm an...

    Should I be able to change the gasket set just using the tool to compress the tensioner or do I need to pull the intake Cam? I tried just using the tool last night but when there was no tension on the top pad it would twist and I never got it to compress enough before it snapped. I could've...

    HELP! I am getting a MIL and 17927 code "Camshaft Adjustment, Bank 1 Malfunction - Sporadic" after replacing both cam chain tensioners on my 2003 V6 (I had a broken pad on one side, and given the mileage I decided to replace them both). To do this job, I removed both cams on both sides, along...

    Merry christmas everyone! I'm getting ready for my next round of maint on my 1.8t 5 speed 4mo and I'm wondering if I need to replace my cct or not? Only maybe 20% of the time and only on very cold mornings I'll get a quick rattle from it on start up. Only last a a split second. Normal?

    Starting trouble; CCT or FPR? A week ago, I started getting a CEL with code 16396/P0012, Advance Setpoint Not Reached. This weekend, so far it only seems to be when the engine's warm, but I'm having trouble starting. It's acting like there's not enough fuel, but once the engine finally does...

When I look at all the tutorials, they show a tensioner mechanism with a solenoid and a electrical connection. looking at the back of my valve cover im not seeing this. No solenoid or electrical connector is exposed. Am I...

    Been reading a lot of posts on here about cct issues and my mind is going in several different directions. This is on the 2003 glx 5 speed manual with the 2.8. I had gotten a cel for camshaft position sensor in one bank so I put in a new sensor and coil pack to no avail, still misfiring in that...

    Thursday afternoon the car decides to run like crap and sound horrible. Drug it home and opened up the top end, to discover failed CCT pads on the driver's (left hand side for you UK folks), and cracks in the body of the passenger's side CCT - hasn't failed yet but looks like it was very near...

    Been fighting the cct on passenger side all day. Trying to see if I have it timed correctly since the mark on the intake cam came off. Thanks in advance guys. I feel I'm still a tooth off on intake cam. Motor is at tdc and cams are locked with cam locking tool.

    Hi all, I recently changing the TB/water pump/etc. and replaced the cam chain tensioner gaskets, valve cover gaskets, and pads on my '03 Passat. The engine sounded fine and everything is good. I had one check engine light caused by not plugging in the MAF sensor. Did this, cleared it. No...

    I removed the Timing Belt and also the intake cams to replace the CCT shoes and gasket. I marked the cam chains and put it back exactly right with 16 links. I hand cranked the engine several times with plugs removed and TB back on and it looked perfect. It now won't start. It has spark (test...
