Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

2000 hyundai accent - bad screeching sound coming from the belts.

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?

    I found out that if I start my car and turn the heat all the way down on cool and 0 it doesnt screech. If I turn the heat on it automatically starts screeching. If I start my car with the heat on full blast it screeches right away.

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 ?

Was the automatic belt tensioner replaced or even checked? if if has lost tension then the belt is loose and slip[d under a load, which you hear as a screeching noise.

Hyundai accent 2005 when starting up the vechile and driving there is a constant ugly sound coming from the front passenger side wheel and when applying the brakes on there is a high pitch squeel


That screeching sound is a warning that your brake pads are worn down to the point where they should be immediately replaced. If you do not replace the pads, you'll score the rotor and incur an additional expense. Remember to replace the brake pads on both sides, i.e., driver and passenger side.

Sounds like the timming belt is loose and or a pully is bad. However it could simply be a worn alternator or power steering belt.

Loud Screeching sound When Turning only on occassion.


it sounds like the power steering belt is loose. If it has a tensioner pulley the spring in it might be loosing it's tensile strength. While you are looking at the belt pay attention to the side that is against the pulley to see if it has alot of cracks. If it has I think 10 cracks per inch that is too much and needs to be replaced.

2002 Hyundai Accent Problem


first thing i need to know is did the timing belt break?
second is are you sure you aligned the timing marks and after the belt tensioner was tight you rechecked to make sure the timing stayed where you had it.
next step would be a compression check to if a valve was bent whenchanging the belt
i have seen this happen and this engine is an interferance engine.
