Question about 1994 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

Siezed engine in 1994 hyundai sonata 2 litre

Driving along at abt 60kph engine gave a shudder, started rattling and then cut out, when I tried to restart it the engine wouldn't turnover. when I got it home I started to remove the spark plugs thinking that I had possibly blown a head gasket anf filled the cylinfders with coolant. To my amazement 3 of the 4 plugs had the electodes smashed as if the pistons had hit them.Could this be a main beaing failure or possibly con-rod fsilure? Any suggestions? the enegine had plenty of oil in it and it didn't overheat.

Timing belt replacement interval


My rule of thumb for Timing belts:
replace at 60,000 miles, and every 40,000 miles thereafter. Having said that, I often let
cars go until the timing belt starts showing signs of wear (usually every 50K - 75K miles)

But www.autozone.com (register free at www.autozone.com) is recommending for your
car driving in "severe driving conditions" (aka normal stop-start driving) that your 2000 Sonata
have:
60,000 miles - replace
90,000 miles - inspect for wear
120,000 miles - replace
150,000 miles - inspect for wear

The 155 page owners manual (I found one at the link below - you may prefer to try Hyundai)
makes no mention of the timing belt at all.

Engine cut off while driving 2004 Hyundai Sonata.


BEST SOLUTION: Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

Noisy startup when cold, sounds like valve


Hello onarock844...The Hyundai 2.4 litre and the 3.3 litre are known to have valve train noise. Some sooner than others.
The timing chain tensioners on the 06 and 07 Sonata 3.3 engines built before August 4, 2006 are well known for developing wear that allows them to make a tapping or rattling noise for a short time after a cold start. This noise can be mistaken for a lifter noise, although the actual source is in the front cover area of the engine. Hyundai has released a technical service bulletin on this problem, which describes installation of an updated design timing chain tensioner (part #24410-3C300) to correct this noise issue.
Ask your dealer to refer to Hyundai service bulletin #06-20-002 for information...If this has already been corrected,,,and the noise is coming from the upper engine area and not from the timing chain area, then the valve clearance will need to be adjusted. This is done by disassembling the valve train and installing slightly different size tappets to change clearance.
This is a fairly labor intensive process, so if you are still under factory warranty then you will want to go over the dealer's head and get the Hyundai zone rep involved to get it covered before your warranty coverage expires...
I recommend useing a full synthetic engine oil, i know in a few cases where the noise has stopped when the oil was changed over to synthenic, also a high quality filter is important, such as a purolator.
Good luck...i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.

Oil pump


Sorry to say, but you might have some serious problems. I'll list 3 vague the possibilites, best-case scenario to worst.
1. You blew a gasket, oil pan, timing cover, valve cover. Any gasket that holds engine oil in. If this blew out, you would lose oil, the light would come on (low PSI) and the motor would sieze.

2. You have a serious clog somewhere in you oiling system which caused a PSI spike, blowing a line or gasket. The clog is a problem, which comes from sludge and deposits. Oil ports, holes and lines in the engine are fairly small and not difficult to clog if the oil and filter are neglected.

3. The worst thing that could have happened is you blew your motor. Overrevving, driving to hard without letting it warm up or again, neglecting the oiling system. You may have thrown a rod through the engine block, dropped a valve, spun a bearing or lost a main seal. The main seal is the least serious, but the labor is still extensive.

In your '94, If the engine stopped on it's own (you didn't shut it off), it probably siezed. In many cases this is not repairable. Start car shopping.
