What would happen if you had a variators issue (slight clanking sound on startup 1-3 seconds) and just drove it like that without fixing it? Would there be any engine damage?

It won't damage anything in its current shape,but it is not gonna get better and the time period of the clanking will increase as time goes...Jason

Thanks Jason for the response.
Can the Variator issue cause valve damage because the timing is off? I was told this when i was calling around for a qoute.

It technically could if you managed to let it get really really bad...I think shops tell people that in order to sell the job...I have never had one bend the valves...Jason
