Does anyone know if you can tell when the timing belt tensioner is causing
a problem with the timing belt, or does it go all at once?  I appear to
have the same one as the original on this write-up:
However,  the car has aprox. 43K miles, and the belt looks fine to me. no
cracks or odd wear marks that I can tell.  I don't know how urgent this is,
and I have to prioritize my time with this possible problem, and getting my
engine back in my Corrado. I'm dying drive something that's really fast
