my timing belt has slipped a tooth due to the prik of a mechanic who didnt fit it right

the one who is sorting it now said out of curiosity that he would like to know if the gti is a SAFE engine

i.e do the bend vavles etc something like that if timing belt snaps or slips like mine

cheers

Hi,

Gti engine is interierance engine so if you snap cam belt, you could have bent valves.
Saying that I snapped twice. Once with over service period and next with stone getting in between belt and pulley. I didn't have any bent valves or anything.

If you just lost 1 tooth or 3/4 teeth, you will be alright.

Cheers

Just do a compression test. That will give you a clear answer. If not you might need the head rebuilt. I recommend these guys: www.totalengines.com
