You know that is still the mystery. My brother drove it around for several hours one night. He took it over to our brother in laws house to swap cars so he could use his truck. Next morning brother in law starts it, says it runs rough for several minutes and then wont start again. So we really don't know what happened. That car has had almost no trouble at all. Then one day a valve goes flying through the piston.

I dunno. We changed the belt like maybe 6 months ago but hadn't had any problems. It doesnt really matter though we just found a used a6 motor that is missing a few parts like injecters and distributor, but the guy said the motor ran fine before it was taken out. Only wants 50 bucks.
Had a dirt bike motor that looked like that exsept the valve in the piston. Its just from old where and tear on that motor thats what caused it. The dirt bike i had was really old. Not 10000 rpms that will cause somting simmaler. good luck on it though
