My 2001 V6 (B5) is approaching 60k miles, and people recommend instead of the timing belt soon.I referred to as around and also one shop told me their computer shows the the 2001 V6 has a chain, not a belt.The other shop quoted me $1300, half labor and fifty percent parts - then ns told him I might buy the components for $250 online, and also he didn"t know what to say. They"re supposedly a trusted shop too.Anyhow, does mine V6 have actually a chain, or a belt? ns looked inside once and also thought I observed a belt, yet maybe ns wasn"t looking at the ideal part. Thanks!

It has a belt. Don"t walk to the "chain" shop.Make sure you go to a vw/audi shop, you want someone that knows what they"re doing.$1300 is a lot. Vault owner paid much less at the stealership
A complete parts/labor timing belt V6 task with tensioner and also water pump will run you about $1,000+ in ~ an indy, closer to $1,500 at the dealer.Don"t hold the "I"ll buy my own parts" point over their head. Most areas won"t warrant buyer-furnished parts, so you"ll only be conserving a pair hundred bucks and also will have no guarantees.But if these world are talking "chain" rather of "belt", friend shouldn"t be doing business there. The V6"s chains are on the back of the engine and also are usually maintenance free. What you must be involved with is the belt.

Which introduce the age-old question, "Is it worth it to have actually the timing belt fail and also be there is no my auto for a month or more while they"re rebuilding the heads...hopefully correctly?" Most people think the $1k is well spent to prevent the hassles.

Thanks, great info.To it is in fair to the indy the quoted me $1300, they did speak "up to", depending on whether or not the water pump additionally needs to it is in replaced. They likewise explained the buyer-furnished absence of warranty. I additionally live in the SF bay Area wherein labor costs are probably significantly higher.So ns guess another question is - go the water pump absolutely have to be replaced? Some people recommend act it simply to it is in safe, but if it prices that much...

So i guess an additional question is - does the water pump absolutely need to be replaced? Some civilization recommend doing it just to be safe, however if it expenses that much...
glyphin,It"s as likely OR more than the timing belt tensioner come go poor in the V6...which consequently will essentially damage the engine. Since the job on the water pump is already 90% finish by the time belt work, it usually add very small cost and also a many benefit.

Yes, change the water pump, thermostat, and coolant. Mine indy shop said me that they have not viewed a hydraulic tensioner fail however have had countless water pump replacements. These added parts need to be no more than around $200 sleeve (online around $85) and also maybe include 1/2 to 3/4 hour in added labor. As soon as I had actually mine done by the VW just indy shop, full labor to be 4 hours for everything. Also, if you haven"t changed the serpentine belt and also spring tensioner you might want to carry out those now yet they are not critical. Mine spring tensioner started acting up at 102k and also if your are somewhat handy its around a 1/2 hour DIY task and relatively easy to acquire to if girlfriend don"t psychic scraped knuckles.
