    Hi Rick,
    I recently purchased an Audi A4 convertible with V6 3.0L Engine. not even a week after the purchasing this car the engine was over heating and needed water pump. In the process of replacing the water pump I loosened the timing belt without using the locking tool on the cams. As a result the engine’s timing got messed up and I was unable to rotate the crankshaft.

    Then I learned the precise locations of the cams in the left and right side of the engine. I purchased the timing belt tools and lock the cams and crankshaft with proper tools and followed the procedures for replacing the timing belt in the Bentley Manual. After setting the timing I rotated the crankshaft and was rotating freely. then I proceed in putting everything together and then started the engine. Engine ideals but rough and cuts out when I rave the engine. What would you think my problem is did I miss something in the process of setting the timing? Please help. I greatly appreciate any suggestions.
