You can drive it till it breaks of course, that will cost much more then replacing it as maintenance though. I would plan to have it changed much sooner then later as you are already past your recomended service time.

2003 santa fe with 130,000 miles, had timing belt replaced at 60,000 miles. Should it be replaced now at 130 k ?


Your Hyundai's engine is an interference engine, meaning that if the timing belt breaks the engine will suffer major damage. At least a valve job, probably the head being replaced and in the worst case an engine replacement.

The recommended replacement interval for a timing belt is 60k, your already over so I would replace it as soon as feasible.

the reason Hyundai suggest a belt change at 60k is that when it does snap, your looking a $3 to $4000 for a engine rebuild,and in England we have an unlimited mileage warranty for 5 years and the belt/engine is covered, if its changed at the proper time(60k).i think its called insurance,you have to have it,but you hope it never happens...ask someone who has had a belt snap.....any make...

I have a 02 santa fe . can i go 90,000 be for changing belt.


Carfixer 1 is right. The Hyundai engine is called an interference engine, which means that when the timing belt breaks, it will allow the valves to hit the pistons and you will ruin your engine.

Do yourself a favor and replace the belt at recommended intervals. If you are past the 60k mark, have it done right away and save yourself a lot of grief and expense.

Hello mike_potts07: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The suggested miles to change your timing belt is 60,000 miles. This is manufacturers recommended service interval. Also this motor is an interference motor. What that means is if the timing belt breaks. The valves in the head will be hit by the pistons. This will bend all valves that are open at that time.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. This way we can tell the information was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

HI Santa fes are good cars thay just are very touchy when they dont get there fluilds changed. Every 30,000 miles change the coolant and trans fluild. Also the timing belt has to be changed every 60,000 miles or around that. im not saying if you go a mile over bad things are going to happen just keep up on it and it will run forever. I have seeen tham will 200,000 miles on tham and still going strong.
