Question about 2004 Hyundai XG350

2002 XG350 - Do I need new timing and drive belts?

Car only has 38,000 miles on it. Dealer says car is 7 years old and needs new timing and drive belts. Is this true?
I just put my 3rd new battery in after replacing original battery in 2004 while under warranty. Isn't that excessive for years and miles?

Timing belt and most drive belts are good for 70,000miles, i think the mechanic trying to take you for a ride, as for the drive belts inspect them if there is any cracking ware marks etc replace them but seriously if they look like new which they should with only that many miles would not need replacing.

2005 Dodge Neon - Intermintently for 7 months the car won't start. The engine tries to turn over but will not start unless I give it gas. Has been into dealer 4 times and they first did a tune up, then...

I say dont accept vehicle back form the dealer, till its right. Sounds as though the throttle position sensor orMAS is bad. The dealer really should be able to fix it.

Car jumped time how do i reset the timing

Take it to a shop. (Not trying to be rude in any way) This is not a repair for a novice mechanic. If your mechanical skills are really good then to reset the timing you will need to pull the timing cover off and expose the timing belt. If it has jumped time it is best just to replace the belt as it might be damaged. You will need to set the car in top dead center and line all the timing marks up on the cams and harmonic balancer. Loosen the belt tensioner and slide the old belt off. Then you will need to remove the harmonic balancer this is a pain in the ***. You will need a puller and strap wrench to get it off. Once you get it off slide the old belt off. Install the new belt and reverse for assembly.
