Cutaway drawing of the V6 Turbo On all V6 engines it can sometimes happen that the sealing rings between valve covers and spark plug boreholes start to leak. An exception is the 6-speed box from the 4-wheel-driven-164 Q4, coming from the German company Getrag. Too much wear causes pointed cam profiles, resulting in a reduced maximum engine power.

These two belts run side by side within the timing cover and because of space constraints both belts are relatively narrow in width. Fresh tires have been fitted within the last 5k miles as well as a new clutch, alternator, catalytic converter, and rear main seal. The fresh air inlet for the heating-blower is located behind the splashboard, underneath the thin plasticcover.
