Question about Cars & Trucks
I'm replacing the timing belt on my 04 santa fe V6 2.7L this week-should I also go ahead and change out the camshaft seals? If so, how many seals are there? I'm using Haynes manual, but can't find any info on this and would like to buy the seals before starting the job if I need to. I know they haven't been changed yet and the car has 153k miles on it.

SOURCE: would like to know if
On your 2004 Santa Fe.
The water pump is not driven by the Timing belt.
Is not stricttly nessesary to replace togheter. they are individual.
But I recomend replace the timing belt when you replace the water pump. Because for get axces to the water pump,
you need to remove all the Timing covers.
Is just a few more minutes to remove the Timing belt.
Inspect the Engine seals, cam and crank Replace if need.
My PC show me a 2.4L 4cyl. for 2004 santa fe.
Ok.. The labor for that job Removing the Timing belt and water Pump ...IS:
2.8 hours. just the water pump 2.4 hours.
OK.. I hope this help on your question...
Thank you for use fixya..

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.

Do you want to replace the Go to belt yourself? Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.

It needs to be replaced ASAP> This vehicle has an interference engine which means that if the belt breaks the engine will need to be rebuilt/replaced due to the valves making contact with the piston and bending them. The belt should be inspected around every 10k miles, but should be seriously looked into being replaced at least around 80k miles. Also have them check the pulleys and the tensioner. If these are weak and worn out they should be replaced as well, so that you don't have any problems for some time.

it uses a spring loaded tensioner.use a breaker bar to rotate the tension and it should just come off.if u need a pic or anything else to do it let me know,
