Hello, wondering if anyone could help me out with "Code BNK timing settings"? What happened was that I purchased the vehicle, ran like new, next day started misfiring like crazy, diagnosis that one chain tension-er failed and the chain jumped the teeth and now feels like half of the engine is not working at all. So I put great effort in that car and pulls the engine out with transmission because it seemed to be easier that way, now my plan is to open up engine cover which is on back of the engine on this car and see if I can diagnose which timing components need to be replaced in order to get it back up and running. After doing research, tension-er failure seems to be pretty common problem. I assume that the valves are good and are not bent, or I guess at least. Also, looks like it needs some special tools to set the timing. Can it be done without those particular special tools? Maybe use some similar tools? But main question is, how to set timing right again on that engine? Thank you and I hope you can help me out with that. My vehicle is a Quattro.
