2001 Audi A4 Quattro Question: Should timing belt get replaced when thermostat gets replaced?
My MIL came on and after taking it to a certified Audi mechanic, I was told that the timing belt should also get replaced, since practically the entire engine needs to be taken out. I had the timing belt last replaced in June 2007 and have since put 21,000 miles on the car. I currently drive less than 5,000 miles per year. Should I still replace the timing belt at the same time as the thermostat or can the old timing belt be put back on? - DeeDon
You may not need the timing belt right now. But if they are removing it already for other repairs, they should put a new one on for just the cost of the part. This is good because It will save you hundreds of dollars should you need one in the near future. - torque wrench
