Anyways, on Audis you have to take out the entire engine when the chain tensioner fails.
Yeah.... Not to replace the tensioner persay.... But to repair all the bent valves.

I've got a dodge setting in the shop right now, tensioner gave way and bent every valve in the heads.

It's because there simpilar. They are however throwaway cars. Once they get 10 years on them and something big goes out there not worth fixing.

i've got a 91 civic, yeah, it's rusted to hell, but it runs like a top, i take care of it,just did timing belt , valvetrain gaskets,blower motor, control arms, etc etc, 212k, and i'm sure i'll get 300k out of it, i'll rivet and silicone sheet metal in to keep the water out,lol

once the susp mounts rust, it's done

a kia or hyundai can't even come close to a honda or toyota, so why bother
