Greetings, looking for known good Cam and Crank waveform for this 2001 vw beetle 1.8t APH. Vehicle had water pump done at another shop, and now limited throttle at times. Many thanks!

I have a known good for a early 2.0t (belt driven). This is basically the same engine. I marked on yours where that one lies vs. your capture. You are only about 6 degrees off. for me, that's not a lot. I would attribute that to rear chain stretch more than anything.

You should not need crank and cam waveforms but you can go to measuring value block 90 through 94 and see what timing is measured at or just look at the timing belt as well

Idk, I'd trust a scope so I could verify 100 percent the signal looks good, even though the pcm never misinterprets wonky signals, and you could know if the signal is dropping out. That's me though.

Thank you - tried that: Oddly enough, not a single scan tool in the shop will show data on those groups. Tried Autel, Snap-on, and VCDS. The vehicle is a '1C'.

I can't believe I don't have a known good in my library, but your's looks pretty much right on. Enough that I wouldn't think the belt is off a tooth.

Thank you, Hanz. Front Cam/Crank is lined-up ok. Some of the waveforms given here seem to show the rear chain may be advanced by 6-12 degrees, depending on whichone is 'normal'.

I would triple check those timing marks. Use the timing marks on the flywheel too, not just the cam and crank gears. To me, comparing to Ray's youre timing is off about 13 degrees. Considering how many teeth are on that cam shaft sprocket, I could see it being up to 2 teeth off.
