2.0T cam follower replacement and look how bad this is!!
I have a 2.0T and had it for a year now great engine, but was looking at common faults the other day as my DV went few weeks ago and I changed my PCV valve too and read that the cam follower was very common problem and symptoms are fuel cuts, well sometime when my dsg gearbox changes gear it felt like a slight jerk like no fuel was there so anyways thought I would change the cam follower.
Picked it up today from Audi and fitted it tonight only to find it like this: I have compared it with the new one
So fitted the new one and it felt so much smoother when I changed into 3rd gear ect this was the worst gear before.
What I wanted to know is would this of caused any damage to my engine at all I have looked at the cams through the hole and seemed fine to me, No damage it anything. Would this of made my car slower also with the old follower
