Question about 1997 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

Just changed waterpump in our 1997 Elantra, has 147,400 miles also changed timing belt and thermostat and thermostat housing gasket where heater hoses are. New antifreeze, was running engine and checking the heat to make sure thermostat was working. Then we noticed a water leak, so we changed the thermo gasket and housing gaskets again. Again we were running the engine while we were installing the antifreeze again. While running the engine after a few minutes we noticed again water was leaking, only this time water was coming out of the back of the engine over the transmission and behind the thermostat housing or in that area. Is there a freeze plug in that area and could the fact of a new timing belt and thermostat and waterpump cause the plug to blow out? gjouvelakos@verizon.net

Just want to know if I have to change the timing belt on my 1997 Avalon XLS with 63,350 original miles (always used Premium gasoline and Mobil 1 oil) and if the belts is changed, does the water pump need...


DUE TO THE AGE OF CAR, TIMING BELT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REPLACE WATER PUMP, BUT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA..GAS AND OIL HAVE NO EFFECT ON TIMING BELT OR WATER PUMP.....

My heater is not working and is blowing cold air and it also is overheating


your coolant lavel is low or you have a head gasket problem/ leak. If the truck has a 4 cylinder 2.2 litre engine it is probally the head gasket.

97 Hyundai Lantra. Temp gauge shows engine very hot


If the replacement thermostat is good, and installed properly, then the temp sensor might be bad. I hate to tell you ($$$$$) but waterpump could be bad (more expensive)
