My local garage that takes care of my A-8 I had do a timing belt maintainance change at 105K. He called me after completed the job he started the car, said the cam tensioners were defective and worn out and the car jumped time and valves hit the heads.. I now have a junked engine says wants to show me the malfunctioning cam tensions and why this happened.. I mentioned that the car had the intemittent clacking noise at start up when the car sat for a while but not all the time. Can anyone advise me here. I can't believe that the cam tensioners could get the car so way out of time that there would have been catistrophic interference or any interference for that matter. Advice
