Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent
Every morning when i go to start my hyundai it screeeches for a good 5 seconds, sometimes longer. high pitch, very annoying, not to mention embarassing screeching. only when its cold though. i put up the hood and turned it on and its coming from the belts. im not sure if its the timing belt or alt. belt? or maybe something different. does anyone know what the problem is? easy to fix? parts? cost? anything?
Hi as the timing belt is toothed it would not slip however it may be loose and in need of renew? as you do not mention milage ie period the belt is due for replacement ? the screech if this above is problem? would/could be the belt slip on the adjuster bearing which should also be renewed with belt i would first check out the alternator/p/steer belt as the loading of belt if slack/worne when starting from cold will give screech as it starts to overcome load of alter and especially p/steer oil pump then noise ceases as engine warms?? if you drop this belt off bfore you first start from cold ? would give an indication of which belt req's attention ? ps! as for age of car/milage? would not ignore the recommended milage for timing belt renewal ? hope this helps you diagnose problem ?
