What is a timing belt and how does it work?
An engine timing belt is a fiber reinforced, toothed drive belt manufactured using durable compounds such as highly saturated nitrile. The timing belt allows the crankshaft to drive the camshafts in the cylinder head at half the RPMs of the crankshaft. The camshafts then open and close the engine’s intake and exhaust valves in time with the movement and position of the pistons in the engine.
When to replace the timing belt?
- Every 60k-90k miles. If an engine is equipped with a timing belt, the timing belt must be replaced at the service interval specified by the vehicle manufacturer regardless of whether or not any problem is visible, typically in the range of 60,000 to 90,000 miles. Your vehicle owner’s manual should state the specific service interval.
- Engine stops abruptly or will not start. Occasionally, timing belts can break, or skip, while the engine is running.
- Rough engine operation. The molded, reinforced teeth on the timing belt engage gears on the crankshaft and camshafts. After many tens of thousands of miles, the teeth can wear or break, or the belt can stretch, thus causing the belt to jump position on the crankshaft or camshaft gears. Should the belt jump, the engine will run poorly and perhaps not at all.
- Banging or clanking engine noise. On some engines, if the timing belt has jumped, the pistons and valves can collide and there will be noise and damage. These engine designs are referred to as interference engines. If your car has an interference engine, replacing the timing belt according to the maintenance schedule will minimize the chance that a belt failure will cause engine damage.
How do mechanics replace the timing belt?
Engine designs vary, and thus the replacement procedure will vary, but broadly, the procedure is as follows:
- Disconnect the battery ground cable.
- Once the engine is cold, set the crankshaft to top dead center with the number one piston on the compression stroke. Remove crankshaft pulley.
- Remove all accessories interfering with the removal of the timing belt covers.
- Remove timing belt covers. Lock camshafts, as required, and note position of camshaft timing marks. Remove timing belt tensioner and idler pulleys. Remove timing belt.
- If replacing the water pump, do so at this time, and of course drain the cooling system first. If the engine cooling system thermostat is only accessible with water pump replacement, the thermostat should be replaced as well.
- Installation of the new timing belt includes all of the above steps, performed in reverse, following strict guidelines to assure camshaft and crankshaft (and balancing shaft, if equipped) are in perfect alignment after tensioner has been set.
- Upon completion of the installation, the engine crankshaft is turned by hand 720 degrees and the correct position of the timing marks on the crankshaft and the camshafts is confirmed.
- The vehicle is road tested to confirm normal operation and a service sticker is affixed to the engine noting the date of belt replacement and the vehicle mileage.
Is it safe to drive with a timing belt problem?
No, were a worn out timing belt to snap while underway, perhaps on a highway, it creates a risk of complete loss of engine power while surrounded by fast moving vehicles. Once your vehicle has reached the recommended replacement mileage for the belt, you can eliminate the risk of sudden and unexpected timing belt breakage by having it replaced. If your engine is of the interference type, it is especially important to replace the belt according to the maintenance schedule because sudden breakage of the timing belt, while the engine is running, will likely cause significant damage to internal engine components such as the valves and pistons.
When replacing the timing belt keep in mind:
- An interference engine should be carefully inspected before a broken timing belt is replaced because it may have sustained damage that will have to be repaired prior to installing a new belt.
- The timing belt system includes idler pulleys and a belt tensioner. These components should be replaced along with the belt.
- On some cars, the timing belt drives the engine’s water pump. Mechanics will usually recommend replacing the water pump at the same time that the timing belt is replaced.

A bad timing belt or timing chain can be a serious issue. If it jumps a tooth, or breaks entirely it can lead to permanent engine damage. It’s important to know the symptoms of a bad timing belt or chain, so this doesn’t happen to your Volkswagen Passat.
Timing belts are made out of rubber and nylon, unlike a timing chain which looks a lot like a bicycle chain. Here’s more on a timing chain vs a timing belt. For all intents and purposes, they create the same symptoms when they go bad.
Timing belts are not that common. You’re much more likely to find a timing chain in cars and trucks than belts. Smaller cars, particularly Japanese made ones, can use timing belts instead of a timing chain. They are most commonly found on four cylinder engines.
Volkswagen Passat: Bad Timing Belt/Chain Symptoms
Here are some of the most common signs of a bad timing belt on the Volkswagen Passat:
- Engine Won’t Start– If your Passat’s timing chain or belt has fallen off completely, broken, or has jumped a few teeth, it is entirely possible that the engine won’t even start. You might hear it slapping around as the engine cranks over. If this is the case, the damage is already done.
- Noise– A good indication that a timing belt has gone bad is going to be noise. There may be a sound of rubber beating against something. It’ll typically be a rough rattling sound, and it is often most noticeable right when you start up your Passat.
- Performance Decrease– If the timing belt has jumped a few teeth, but hasn’t fallen or broken off yet, it can knock the engine out of time. The timing belt is responsible for keeping the camshaft(s) in sync with the crankshaft. If the timing belt has moved, that means that the valves will open and close at the wrong time. This will lead to a performance decrease. It’s highly likely that the engine is going to be misfiring as well.
- Loss of Fuel Mileage– Fuel mileage will suffer when the engine is no longer kept in time.
- Glazing and Dry-rot (Timing Belt Only)– If you are looking at the Passat’s timing belt itself, check to see if the belt is glossy. It should grip your finger as you lightly brush across it. If it is slippery and dry, that is a great indication it could be bad as well.
- Check Engine Light– If the timing chain or belt needs replaced due to wear, but hasn’t jumped a tooth, the service engine soon light will not come on. But, if it has jumped, the check engine light will very likely come on. At the least, you should get some sort of misfire relate codes.
Don’t Overlook the Tensioner
The timing tensioner can also go bad. The tensioners job is to keep the right amount of pressure on your Volkswagen Passat’s timing belt or chain. As the belt/chain stretches through normal operation, it would get loose and fall off or jump. The tensioner keeps this from happening by keeping a consistent amount of force on the belt. So, as the belt stretches it adjusts for this stretching. If the tensioner is no longer keeping enough pressure on the timing belt, it’ll cause it to fail.
If you are going to replace the tensioner, make sure to swap the belt as well. It’s so hard to get to, and timing belts/chains are relatively affordable. It’s just the TIME that it would take you or your mechanic to get to it that’s the problem.
Conclusion: Volkswagen Passat Timing Chain Symptoms
Most manufacturers will recommend changing the timing belt at 60k or 100k miles. There isn’t usually a service window at all for the chains. Although, it can vary. Where a lot of people get into trouble is when they buy a used car with 100k no realizing that the belt service is going to be immediately due.
