Unless your well clued up with engines i wouldn't try changing timing belt yourself get somebody experienced to do this because if you don't time engine up properly you could cause serious damage by bending valves.

Hyundai Elantra 1999 timing issue


It's a '99 Elantra, have you ever replaced the timing belt? It is a belt not a chaing, so it is very much should have the belt changed. After 13 years if you haven't done the belt yet now appears to be the time to change. I have an '05 and we changed it over a year now.

Good luck!!

Very low miles 1995 Hyundai ELANTRA 1800 cc 16 dohc. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT frequently comes on. Stop engine, retart after light goes off...sometimes goes for hundred miles and three times new timing belt...


If the timing belt keeps breaking and bending valves, the timing belt and cylinder head repair is not being done correctly. It's as simple as that. Are you changing the tensioner and idler pullies when replacing the belt? Is it timed correctly? Was the timing belt tension adjusted properly? Were the cam journals checked for damage? If not, you are asking for another belt failure.

If you want to know why the check engine light is coming on, you will have to ask your engine computer. Every time the light comes on it is storing a fault code to tell you why. You must scan your engine control module to retrieve the fault code(s) so you can get it properly diagnosed and repaired.

Whats a difference between timing belt and drive belt , for my 2004 Elantra Hyundai cernter is asking to change the drive belt and flush the Hyd oil, car has 53,000 miles on it


a drive belt refers to belt driven items like alternator, power steering, water pumps and the like.

A timing belt is cogged to precicely hold the relationship between the crankshaft and the valve train. Timing belts are usually located within covers, as the loss or damage to this belt exposes engine damage and failure.

If you have to get your timing belt reset on a 2003 Hyundai Elantra how long will it take for them to reset it? Is it an all day job. Will it take a few minutes or just an hour?


the timing belt is nothing but the belt that connects the crankshaft to the camshaft. its less than a 2 hour job.

dont replace the timing belt with any thing but the OEM belt or wour ignition timings will change and can make your car not diveable.

Do I change water pump when having timing belt changed


I would go to auto zone and get a diagram and the timing belt and do it yourself and the water pump (no it does not have to be changed everytime the timing belt is changed but if the car has over 60,000miles then it is best to change them both) it is not that hard especially if the car is not out of time just make sure you disconnect the negative side of the battery
