I just remove the timing belt and I didn't use the camshaft holder and it move about one quarter of turn and now after putting all together the car wont start what can I do to fix it?
My car has 165000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi - the only way to correct this is to do a timing belt & tensioner replacement - including the use of the Audi V6 timing tools to properly time the camshafts (relative to the crankshaft), and reset the camshaft phasers properly. Otherwise, you risk expensive damage to the valves from incorrect valve timing. There is no shortcut. I would recommend a timing belt replacement by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, and correct this problem.
