Manufacturer's intervals are the maximum. Certainly it would be wise to have a number of interim visual inspections. 160,000 miles is a very long way that would take a number of years to cover. Few manufacturers specify only a mileage interval because belts age as well as wear out. A manufacturer would specify a time OR a distance whichever is reached first.

It is unwise to rely on mileage intervals and it is wise to change the belt, tensioners, waterpump or whatever, early.

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.

Does a timing belt have to be changed at 5 years or is it based on milage. I have a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe that only has 25,000 miles. Does the timing belt have to be changed because it is 5 years old?


Usually a timing belt replacement is based on mileage not age. However, I would have the belt visually inspected to make sure it still is in good condition. If the belt breaks it can cause serious engine damage. The inspection should cost you very little as most newer cars has inspection plattes that come off with a few bolts, you could even do it yourself. I would think that you are fine, but better safe then sorry. My hyundai elantra went for 120,000 miles with the same timing belt and is still going today with its new owner.

I have a 02 santa fe . can i go 90,000 be for changing belt.


Carfixer 1 is right. The Hyundai engine is called an interference engine, which means that when the timing belt breaks, it will allow the valves to hit the pistons and you will ruin your engine.

Do yourself a favor and replace the belt at recommended intervals. If you are past the 60k mark, have it done right away and save yourself a lot of grief and expense.

The timing belt is not easy but the regular tune up anyone with basic hand tools can do.Plugs and wires,fuel and air filter and perhaps an oil change and your good to go.Timing belt should be done by som eone with experiance.

Better engine performance and gas mileage


try either a cold air intake or a chevron....a chevron is a cylinder with slots cut like arrow heads which will remove air turbulence....that alone will increase your performance at least 25% and horse power about another 40 to 50.

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.
