Question about 2001 Hyundai Tiburon

Timing chain cover cracked

How would this happen? We took 1995 chevy s-10 to shop for a new full pump. Got the truck back leaking oil like crazy. Man at shop said there is a 3-4 inch crack in the plastic timing chain cover.
Has anyone heard of this. Did they do something to the truck? It never leaked any oil. Not a drop.

I am not familiar with Hyundai vehicles. But from wut I have seen so far, timing chain covers are isolated from the oiling areas. It's just a cover to prevent foreign bodies from obstructing its motion. I don't know if it's the same design with Hyundai. I can be wrong. But if it is, therefore wut the mechanic is sayiing is not correct. It nmeans the oil is coming from somewhere lese. First and foremost, I think u shouldn't accept wut they said in the first p[lace because u carried the vehicle to them without any leaks, now it is. They have to fix it. No ifs or buts

I never heard of a cover cracking, unless the timing chain or belt snapped. And I've worked on cars for 40 years. 10 to 1 it happened at the shop,but it can't be proved.

You might have a cracked timing chain cover, blown head gasket, cracked block, or bad radiator if it has a built in oil cooler. It's hard to say without a cooling system pressure tester.

92 voyager oil pump replacement.


Remove the engine front cover then drain the engine oil and take out the oil pan. It is under the engine and looks like the bottom of the motor.
Unscrew the oil pump mounting bolts with a wrench and proceed to remove the oil pump itself by pulling it down and out of the engine. Avoid getting any contaminants into the oil pump assembly while removing.
Add fresh oil to the new pump to prime it. Check the alignment on the new oil pump drive with the crankshaft/intermediate crankshaft timing.
  • Step 2 Install the new pump carefully, rotating it back and forth a little to make sure it has full surface contact between the pump and the engine block.
  • Step 3 Hold the pump in its sealed position and put in the pump mounting bolts, tightening them to 15 ft-lb.
  • Step 4 Put the engine oil pan back in and refill the crankcase. Start the engine and check for leaks on the parts you replaced

    Timing chain cover cracked


    A cracked cover will not cause a leak. Overtightening the cover will cause a problem or perhaps they mishandled it and broke it and tried to put it back on. The seals around the camshafts may be at fault. When they replaced the fuel pump they should not have messed with this so I would have them explain what they did.
