If it is a chain then no it does not need to be changed. I would call the local dealer and give them the vin# to make sure 100% if it is a chain or a belt. Achain does have guides made of plastic that you may want to think about along with the tensioner. Good luck.

I work for a hyundai dealership - your sonata is has a timing belt and it is recommended that you change this belt @ 100 000 km --- whatever that is in miles!

Does 2006 1100cc colt have timing belt or chain and when should it be rereplaced


Pretty sure it has a timing belt and you should replace it at around 60,000 miles they are designed to last a lot longer but to be safe replace every 60,000 as well as the water pump and idler bearings

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.

My 2006 Toyota Rav4 it has 70,000 miles on it. I look in the owner maintenance manual and it doesn't say anything about replace timing belt at 60,000 miles like many others. Does this vehicle use timing...


Hello. Welcome to FixYa.
Please allow us to assist you.

We have good news for you.

Your vehicle does not have a timing belt. Your vehicle has a timing chain; there is no suggested replacement interval for the newer engines with timing chains.

There is no need to concern yourself with the expense of replacing the timing chain, as it will never need replaced.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

Does the timing chain should be changed and for how long?


timing chains should only be changed if there is noise or problem in that area. if it has a belt most belts need to be changed at 60,000 miles and some at 100,000. Engine damage may occur in many engines run with a timing belt that breaks.

At what mileage do you change a timing belt in a 2007 sonata, 99% of mileage is highway.


Most car manufacturers recommend replacing timing belts after 60,000 miles. I have seen cars go 200,000 on a timing belt. But I wouldn't recommend that. Personally, that Max I would go, even if 99% of your driving is highway, is 80,000 miles. I'm not 100% sure about the sonata, but if it is front wheel drive and your replacing the timing belt, think about replacing the water pump at the same time. That is always good practice to remember.
