I have an Audi A6 3.0 quattro with 107,000 miles. Can you give me some estimate as to whether I might get another 10,000 miles before replacing the timing belt?

    Hey Frameman,
    Audi recommends replacing the belt at 105,000 miles, so your already pushing your luck. I would not plan on driving this at all, because if the belt breaks, you will cause a lot of internal engine damage. So a job that may have cost $1000 - $1500, may jump up to $4000! I don't think it's worth it. Get it don't soon!
