    Hello

    My Golf 5 MK5 2005 MY Produced 31/10/2015. Its a Petrol 1.6 FSI Sport BLF engine. 170000+ miles

    Recently did the timing chain myself... it has a 21mm 12 point socket on the crankshaft belt pulley bolt nut... This info is gold...

    I wrote 2015 LOL - 31/10/2005 apologies

    Any reason why you did the timing chain? Did you have running issues or error codes?

    P0016 code after, tightening lug nuts on a downward slope with the car in reverse, accompanied by a less than great handbrake. Heard a clunk, basically exhaust camshaft jumped way to far, had difficulty with a cheap eBay timing tool almost got the cylindrical timing tool stuck in the engine, timed it without the circular par; using just the prongs of the tool; ended up with timing code again but the engine at least runs, whilst the exhaust camshaft was off, the symptoms were rough engine idling, barely accelerate and the sub 1 hour (combined) I had the engine running, my tank mileage dropped from 120 miles to 60 miles; the exhaust became partially blocked so the car now only reaches 70 and decelerates uphill to about 65mph.... =/ first time I did the chain though, ECP/ car parts 4 less timing side crank oil seal doesnt fit so reused the old (leaking) one... Oh and cataclean didnt help... sadly..

    Oh but my compression has improved after the timing chain kit from 12 bAr to around 14-14.5 with cyl 2/3 iirc being about 12.5-12.75 bar all cylinders compression higher than before... now Im trying to fIgure out how to clean the exhaust because after the timing chain the spark plugs were completely carbonised and black, with a misfire, but new sparks fixed that, just reduced power, as when I fIrst bought the car and drove down the M1 blocking the original cat.. shame the new one is also partially blocked now too....

    Do you not think if you give it time e.g. few months of driving the soot will get burned off from the cat? Surely it can't be that blocked just from excess fuel?

    Oh maybe, but I suspect itíll just get worse, since the excess fuel may have melted the elements of the cat... rather than just heavy soot build up, also if the soot has built up I guess it would just add to it and block further rather than naturally unblock... (as perhaps the carbonized cat catches more incompletely combusted materials narrowing the honeycomb exhaust flow overtime.

    But, what do I know, Iím a too far gone DIYer, in no way am I a qualified mechanic, I used the timing tool without the circular parts because my reasoning was the prongs of the camshaft lock are always equal distant apart and the housing of the camshaft is locked in a fixed position and the receiving pin holes on the camshaft are always going to be in the same place... meaning logically the cylindrical timing tool part isnít as necessary but nevertheless I get a timing error, seems logic didnít prevail or my maths isnít up to par, maybe Iím a link or so off because the error comes every other start up after being erased or there is some VCDS timing retardation technique Iím unaware of...


    As always, just an enthusiast, monkey see monkey do haha

    The design of the cam chain tensioner on the EA111 16v FSI engine is shockingly bad, all it needed was a spring ratchet system like the larger EA888 and rotating the engine backwards would do no harm, it is a shockingly bad oversight

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
