The odds are the timing belt wasn't lined up correctly with the timing marks. Best to have the timing belt recheck for correct alignment.

Is the 2002 hyaundai santefe a zero tolerance motor


The 2002 Santa Fe 4 cyl and 6 cyl engines are deemed "Interference" engines. If the timing belt should break or slip a few teeth, the pistons will strike the valves and most likely destroy the engine. Thus it is very important to change the timing belt every 80,000 - 100,000 miles (along with a replacement water pump). I recommend buying a belt/pump kit and having a local independent shop do the install (much cheaper than a dealer's $600 charge!).

Belt & pump kits are available via Amazon:

Starting in 207 Hyundai started shifting all of their engines to metal timing "chains"... more or less eliminating the possibility of such a problem. However, water pumps still go out... but not nearly as often or catastrophic a problem!

When is the next timing belt change on 2002 dodge stratus sedan dohc


Welcome to Fixya

If the engine is a 2.4 L SFI 4 Cyl, the schedule is every 105,000 miles. I do recommend 90,000 to 100,000 miles is the best time to replace.

How often does the cam belt (or timing belt) have to be changed on my Hyundai Santa Fe (Reg 51)?


Car Manufacturer's Recommendations A standard replacement period for the timing belt will fall between 50,000 and 100,000 driven miles. The owner's manual or service manual for your particular model will give you a specific time for replacement.

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!

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.

Engine keeps running for 5-15 seconds after key is off. When this happens, car is hard to start (shortly after) and runs rough for a minute or so.


Could be a timing issue..
If it takes a timing belt & has not been replaced at the propper times - that could casuse serious problems if it breaks..
