Do you mean the "Timing Belt"? There is NO Cam belt.. .there is, however, a "Cam Timing Chain"... connects the Intake & Exhaust cams together under the cam cover (valve cover). Unless you actually INSPECT the Timing Belt, no one can know... the noise might be anything! Valve tappets, timing belt Idler pully, tensioner pully, water pump bearing, you name it. Solution: Take vehicle into Hyundai Service Center - pay the diagnostic fee - they will give you an estimate of repairs (if needed) (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.). This way you'll know if there's actually a problem and what it is, as well as what's required to fix it... OR that there's nothing at all wrong.

My car has a timing chain, when I start my car in the morning its very noisy then it quite down a bit,


noisy on start up is hydraulic lifter problem as they are loose until the oil pressure builds up. the adjustment is taken up and the noise goes
it mat have some noise from the chain until the oil pressure builds up as it has a hydraulic chain tensioner
you list it as a 2016 model and the only suggestion I could make is to go up a grade in oil viscosity
AS it is new the oil is probably 15w where I would use a 20 w 40 oil
run your engine against other new engines and see if the engine noise is louder ( use a noise meter ) and make the dealer do something as nothing gets quieter as it wears out --just louder

This is a 4cyl diesel Beetle. The timing belt broke while driving. Dealer claims no damage done, replaced belt and car was driven for a few weeks. Began to start a bit sluggish, dealer said glowplugs...


my books show it as a interference engine in which case valve damage is most likely to occur
however if that was the case , it would be having a miss from the start and would not run 2 weeks before something happened
if a valve spring breaks there could be valve piston contact but it is doubtful if that would destroy the engine but again breaking valve springs is rather rare on diesel engines
the engine would not just quit but would rattle and bang it's head off then develope a big noisy miss from a hole in the piston
so I suspect a timing belt problem from when they removed/replaced the head after the glo-plug fix or a crank/cam shaft position sensor or wires ( possible faulty connections for the cam shaft)
I would suggest finding an accredited service center for a proper diagnosis and quote for engine repairs

When do I need to replace the timing belt


Your Scion XB does not have a timing belt. It uses a chain and no maintenance is required unless it becomes noisy.

What type of maintenance my car would need after 90,000 miles


There is no special service needed at 90,000 miles other than the normal Air Filter & Cabin Filter replacement every 30,000 miles. Inspect all drive belts and hoses. You do need to replace Brake Fluid every 3 years independent of mileage. At 110,000 miles replace the spark plugs on a 4 cylinder, 105,000 on a V6. Replace engine coolant at 120,000 or 10 years on both engines. Replace A/T fluid at 60,000 miles. On the V6 at 105,000 miles replace the Cam belt and Water Pump. The 4 cylinder has a chain that you replace when it is noisy or you cannot keep the engine in time.

My engine got so noisy and when i removed the engine cover the timing chain looked a bit loose


The timing belt shouldn't cause the engine to be noisy unless it is so loose as to slap parts surrounding it. The engine will become noisy if a loose timing belt skips a tooth or 2 and messes up the timing of the engine.

On another hand, if it is visually loose at the timing gears it is imperative to get the system looked at by a mechanic. The belt may be ok but the tensioner may need to be replaced but if you replace the tensioner, you may as well replace the belt. Timing belt should have some play at the point between the crank pulley and the cam gears.

Take it to a certified mechanic to have it looked at and measure the play on the timing belt to check if it is still in specifications.

Timing belts are only good for about 60,000 miles. If you are over that I would recommend replacing the belt and tensioner but may vary from car to car. Check a repair manual for specifics to your vehicle.

What is the recommended mileage for changing a timing belt on 2006 Forerunner with a V6 engine?


on any auto about 50,000 miles is average it's cheaper to replace the belt then an engine. when the belt breaks most engines will bend the valves and toyotas are good for that

2001 Leganza bought in 10-2007 with 122K miles. 2.2liter DOHC engine with 5speed. Sweet car, but always felt the valve noise was a little clanky and noisy for a small 4 cyl engine. Last Saturday...


I've done one of these before. Most likely you'll have to remove the head and replace some valves. There was a piston to valve collision. By the time you spend the money fixing the engine you could have bought a good used replacement engine. Parts are going to be the pain in the rear. The valves, for example, are coming from the Phillippines. You're better off finding a good used engine.
