Hi,
I have a 2004 Elantra 2 litre diesel which will soon need the timing belt replaced.

Is it possible to do this with the engine still in the car?

    @ John ,

    my US manual doesn't distinguish if this 2.0 L is a diesel or not , but the gas engine version timing belt is customary to replace in the vehicle , also labor guide gives you 3.5 hours for that job .

Yes this can be done in place,remove timing belt side engine mounting,lower rear engine mount and front mount and engine can be moved over to leave room to get the plate bolts out that is in front of the timing cover,its awkward but can be done.

My engine is making noise like a diesel car and someone said is timing chain and tensioner or hydraulic lifters


If the car has done more that 60000 miles then it is time to change the timing belt and also check on the maintenance schedule of the manufacturer.
The noise of the engine always requires a first hand observation so as to determine the exact fault. Possible that an oil change with checking of all timing/valve settings, replacement of timing chain, tensioner, will reduce the noise.

Does it have a timming belt


All gasoline engines and diesels have timing belts.
Current wisdom suggests replacing them between 70-100K miles.
In most modern cars a broken timing belt can have serious (ruined engine) ramifications.

Is it necessary to change the timing belt in a 2004 Elantra VE with 65000 miles (105500 Km)? No problems with it, just mechanic says it's time.


60,000 miles is the typical recommended interval for timing belt replacement. The belt can become worn and skip a tooth or even break. In that event, the pistons can collide with the valves and cause a considerable (and expensive) amount of damage. Changing the timing belt at recommended intervals is good insurance to protect against valvetrain and piston damage due to belt failure.

Maintenance schedule


If the water pump is driven by the timing belt replace it and anything else that is driven by the timing belt(idlers and tensioner) , Also replace the camshaft and crankshaft oil seals while your there.
Never hurts to flush the cooling system and add fresh coolant/anti-freeze.
Hope this helps

Im replacing timing belt, accessory belts and water pump on my hyundai elantra gls 1997 sta wgn auto transmission. (1)Where is bolt to drain engine block coolant?(2)After removing front engine mountin


(1) No need to know if engine block coolant drain plug was available. Once the water pump was removed, all engine block coolant was drained. (2) After removing the three engine mounting bracket bolts, I also removed the mount bracket from the the body and made enough room to replace the timing belt easier.
