If you have an Accent which I believe that you do, it has a belt which needs to be changed every 60-80k miles. This vehicle has what is called an interference engine which basically means that if the belt breaks, the engine will continue to turn BUT the camshaft stops. If any of the valves are open the piston will slam into the open valve (interfere) and you will be looking at a new engine. I would recommend changing the water pump at the same time as well as the tensioner. I would also have the pulleys inspected by a professional mechanic and replaced as needed. If you just change the belt and the tensioner or the pulleys are weak then you can have premature breakage.

How replace timig chain in accent dohc


should be 1.6L engine. easy to replace but is a belt not chain. unless you know how to line up camshaft / crankshaft, I'd pay for the labor. full kit on RockAuto.com is about $50

remove front right wheel, unbolt engine mount top passenger side, loosen accessory pump at top, remove timing belt covers (upper & lower), replace belt and idlers from kit.
to reassemble....reverse steps.
yes, it is that simple BUT not for a neophyte. inspect original belt before replacement, if no cracks, I'd leave alone. mine had 145,000 at replacement and was still good.

TIMING CHAIN CHANGE


hyundai recommends replacing the belt every 60,000 miles or 48 mos and this is an "interference" engine which means if the belt breaks, it will cause internal engine damage. happy holidays

How much of a problem is it to change the timing belt on a '94 Cutlass Supreme 3.4L? I know the alternator is a pain.


this unit is not equipped with a timing belt. it has a timing chain. to replace the timing chain is a major undertaking. if you do not have mechanical experience do not attempt . take to a highly reccomended shop.

1997 saturn sl2 dohc is there a timing belt or chain on it


These engines have a timing chain, not a belt. They also have nylon coated guides under the cover that wear. If you change the chain yourself, or have it done, check the guides as well.
