Question about 1997 Hyundai Accent
How to fix a timing belt for hyundai 1997 model auto petrol engine
If you have never done this kind of work before, buy an aftermarket service manual to guide you. Timing belts or chains improperly installed will cause rather expensive damage to an engine if, as most are, yours is an 'interference' engine, meaning that the valves and pistons can contact (and damage) each other if the cam timing is wrong.
Haynes or Chilton will have them available for your car and the $17-$30 is a good price for the amount of info you then will have. Most all auto parts stores will have them available.
