2.0T timing chain tensioner failureToday I am back talking about more VW failures. This time we are looking at the top failures of the TSI engine. The VW TSI engine is the redesign of the BPY engine. The BPY had it’s fair share of issues. When the TSI came out, we thought VW finally got it right. While the TSI is not free of issues, I still think it’s a pretty good engine. Heck I own a car with the engine in it.
