My timing belt broke on my 2003 hundred Santa fe . I need to figure out if the valves or Pistons were damaged.

every cylinder do a compression test

if low or no compression
heads off to repair and check piston damage

if original motor is beyond repair
you can fit a used motor in from a wrecker

when timing belt breaks
it is the type of engine.. that pistons will hit valves
bend them or damage valve guides in the heads

My 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.4L runs with OBDII scan tool plugged in only. If I disconnect it, the engine shakes very bad and PO11

Hi Rolando, Code P011 refers to the camshaft timing-Cam timing is above a set limit, Probably over advanced, This code can be caused by, Incorrect Camshaft Timing*Wiring Problem(Harness/Wiring)in the Intake timing control solenoid* Continous Oil flow to VCT ( Variable Cam Timing) Piston Chamber.* Failed Timing Valve Control Valve (stuck open).......This is a Mechanical Failure of the VCT or related parts. If you are not familar with Variable Valve Timing or the use of a scan tool, I strongly advise you to seek help from a Qualified Auto Repair with ASE technicians to help with this problem. I hope this helps Good Luck, Randy.

Front brake caliper will not retract

Well that's not a lot of information to go on as it can be a lot of problems so will have to be rather broad and general here and hopefully your problem will fall into one of there or at least point you in the right direction.

.1 the caliper is a hydraulic system meaning it needs fluid to activate it. Check the fluid lines and make sure there is break fluid flowing with some pressure,, (dripping is a no no). This can be done by a process known as bleeding. If your not familiar with it, simply disconnect the fluid line and step on the brake to make sure fluid comes out.

2.) this is more than likely the problem. The caliper depends on the piston to contract or retract. The piston has seals and a boot rubber. the get worn with age an use and it breaks. Dust particles (from the disc pads) often get in these breaks and wedges the piston. To fix this you will need caliper kit for your model car and break system. The process is simple, remove and take apart the caliper (labeling and taking notes to make reassembly easier). remove the piston and clean the piston and the shaft toughly using warm soapy water , contact cleaner and WD40, If necessary re-grease the piston and chamber of in some cases sue break fluid or leave dry depending on the type of caliper. (don't worry you will see whats being used when you take it apart). reassemble the caliper using the new seals and boots provided in the kit.

3.) the simplest fix is to replace the caliper.

4.) remember to bleed the breaks as described in (1).

keep me posted

Based on the information given I have given my suggestion. Please note that the assumption can wrong as I'm not there in person to have a fist hand look, I must suggest you get it professionally looked at.

Does the 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe have grease fittings?

Most fittings are sealed fittings anymore, sometimes the replacements have them

2003 Santa Fe, Misfire & Smokey on start up. Ok when warm. Started when the car was serviced.

it could be caused by your mechanic putting in the incorrect viscosity oil for your car. if it is too thin then it will seep into your combustion chamber before detonation and cause a rough fire as the oil is reacting to the combustion process and burning inside your cylinder. when your vehicle warms up the metal expands causing your piston rings to seal with the cylinder stopping the oil from seeping in from below.
I would get it checked as well as get a cylinder compression test done to assertain weather there is a problem with any of your cylinders.

I bought an aftermarket piston for my 1992 Mercury Topaz XR5 3.0L V6, the original red dot piston seems impossible to find. the aftermarket piston is .021 shorter than the original piston when measured...

Do not use this piston. We are not taking about thousanths of an inch (which would be bad enough) but hundredths. This would drastically change your combustion chamber volume in one cylinder only. Also the spark plug would fire with the piston further down the bore quit likely leading to detonation in that cylinder and may damage your engine because of it. It may, as you say, also be a balance concern since it may not be within the weight tolerance of the pistons. Simply changing the thickness of a head gasket by thousandths of an inc can make a combustion chamber difference - so as mentioned earlier - hundredths of an inch in one cylinder is not acceptable. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks. This actually was scary for me to read.

My 69 E type runs badly.. Can anyone please advise the initial setting of the jet assembly ? The carbs are Stromberg 175 CD2SE Do I screw in the brass assembly all the way,into the bottom of the float...

the way i used to set these up i presume the mixture adjustment is @the bottom of the float chamber and not through the damper top using a special tool. either way the first thing to do is replace the diaphrams then set the jet heights if from underside models get them level with the top of the jet holder then lower the jets about 1 and half turns if the adjustment is on the needle in the suction chamber its the same procedure for the needles from the pistons get the needles lower from the lower face of the pistons then get engine hot and adjust the mixture on the carbs by the same amounts lower the jets or higher the needles whatever model of carbs you have to richen or other way to weaken you can test by lifting the piston in the vac chamber slightly if to weak the engine will slow to rich it will speed up. the ideal is very little change on all carbs. make sur the ignition timing is correct before you start

Does it take a special tool to replace rear brake pads on 2002 hy

hi from uk the rear brake calipers pistons have to be rotated and pushed backwards into the calipers fully so as to enable new pads to be fitted there is special tool for this to make job easy and if you check E BAY garage/tools and equipment pages there are numerous types and different prices dependant on makers ? however you can improvise/make a tool using a a 1/2 inch square drive socket and t/bar +short extension look at piton and you will see it has slots ? cut away an old socket to provide teeth to fit these slots ? then you can both push and rotate c/wise the piston back into caliper or you can buy the tool ? from motor supermarket if you have time ? hope this helps
