Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Hyundai santa fe 2003

I have a 4 cylinder, it has 105,000 miles on it, the timing belt was changed at 60,000 miles. At first we thought it might be the fuel pump but that is working, The reason for that thought was we sprayed starting fluid into the intake and the car started but wouldnt continue to run. Engine light didnt come on before it stalled while driving down the road. It was kicking and bucking before this happened, so we changed the wires and plugs and also one power pack. oil always gets changed from Hidyhi

I have a 2005 Santa Fe with 69,000 miles on it. I am going to drive it another 3,ooo without changing the timingbelt. Should I be worried?


CAUTION: If your Santa Fe has the 4 cylinder engine (2.4 Lit I4), that's DEFINITLY a risk. Get the belt inspected! The 2.4 lit 4 cylinder is notorious for belt failure (even before 60,000 miles due to the heat generated by the engine in the timing belt area. There is also a balance belt accompanying the timing belt on the 2.4 lit -- it is also prone, but not like the timing belt).

If it's the 2.7 or the 3.5 Lit V6, I still recommend you have the belt inspected by a competent technician.

2003 santa fe with 130,000 miles, had timing belt replaced at 60,000 miles. Should it be replaced now at 130 k ?


Your Hyundai's engine is an interference engine, meaning that if the timing belt breaks the engine will suffer major damage. At least a valve job, probably the head being replaced and in the worst case an engine replacement.

The recommended replacement interval for a timing belt is 60k, your already over so I would replace it as soon as feasible.

Does the 2002 hyundai santa fe have an interference engine? It has a 2.4L 4-cylinder.


Hi:
All of the engines in Hyundai santa fe are interference engines, so you should regularly change your timing belt. The timing belt also drives the water pump, so it is always a good idea to change that too, if you have the engine apart for the timing belt. Here is a link to check out!

Timing belt in a 2005 hyundai replacement


You should find another dealer. Hyundai recommends replacing the belt every 60,000 miles and this dealer knows this. No reason at all to replace it at 42,093 miles. Remember that this is an interference engine so if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. Do not neglect this service at 60,000 miles.

How often do i have to change the timing belt?


Each manufacturer has their own recommendation. Honda says 105,000 miles, Domestic say 60-80,000 . Depending on driving conditions, I would recommend 80,000 for anything. Replace the water pump if driven by the belt and the related components too.

Cam Belt change


Hello mike_potts07: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The suggested miles to change your timing belt is 60,000 miles. This is manufacturers recommended service interval. Also this motor is an interference motor. What that means is if the timing belt breaks. The valves in the head will be hit by the pistons. This will bend all valves that are open at that time.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. This way we can tell the information was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Hey Everyone! I'm in the process of considering purchasing a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe, 2.7L V6? Anything I should strongly be considering before I continue with my Purchase? As I have heard through the...


HI Santa fes are good cars thay just are very touchy when they dont get there fluilds changed. Every 30,000 miles change the coolant and trans fluild. Also the timing belt has to be changed every 60,000 miles or around that. im not saying if you go a mile over bad things are going to happen just keep up on it and it will run forever. I have seeen tham will 200,000 miles on tham and still going strong.

2003 Santa fe timing belt change


You can drive it till it breaks of course, that will cost much more then replacing it as maintenance though. I would plan to have it changed much sooner then later as you are already past your recomended service time.
