    timing is done by ecm,only way timing is off is if timing belt is damage or belt is not on marks at install,or chain is loose between cams

What are you talking about?.. I presume you are replacing the Timing Belt or are reinstalling it OR you want to VERIFY if the engine is in ACCURATE time? There are TWO timing MARKS.. one on the CRANKSHAFT & other on the CAM SPROCKET.
Maybe this will help.

Hyundai Elantra 1999 timing issue


It's a '99 Elantra, have you ever replaced the timing belt? It is a belt not a chaing, so it is very much should have the belt changed. After 13 years if you haven't done the belt yet now appears to be the time to change. I have an '05 and we changed it over a year now.

Good luck!!

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.

Noisy engine suggesting cam belt prob at 50,000 miles


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.

Need to set timing


there is a hole in the cam sprocket, when it is at about 12 oclock it chould line up with a groove machined into the head. That is tdc for cam, when lower timing cover removed, mark on crank sprocket should line up with mark on block.
