3.0 Timing belt jumped. Still runs! Could engine be ok?
I have a 2002 A6 with a 3.0. The timing belt jumped but the car still runs. There is a lot of valve noise, but the car seems to run on all cylinders.
What are the chances I can install a new water pump and timing belt and the valve noise will quiet down to a tolerable level?
I'm not interested in pulling cylinder heads or replacing the engine. I'm just wondering if it would be worth the gamble to replace timing belt and water pump.
