2004 hyundai sonata timing belt, maintenance, etc

I've hit my 60,000 mile mark for my hyundai sonata 2004. I know I need to change my timing belt, and tensioners. What else do I need to change and normally how much would it cost? I know there's no exact estimate, but a ballpark would be good. Thanks!

1.5L And 1.6L Engines

  1. Remove all necessary components for access to the timing belt cover, then remove the cover.
  2. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the timing marks so No. 1 piston will be at Top Dead Center (TDC) of the compression stroke.
  3. Loosen the tensioning bolt and the pivot bolt on the timing belt tensioner. Move the tensioner as far as it will go toward the water pump. Tighten the adjusting bolt.
  4. Mark the timing belt with an arrow showing direction of rotation.
  5. Remove the timing belt.
  6. If defective, remove the timing belt tensioner.

  1. Align the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket and check that the crankshaft timing marks are still in alignment.
  2. If removed, install the timing belt tensioner, spring and spacer with the bottom end of the spring free. Tighten the adjusting bolt slightly with the tensioner moved as far as possible away from the water pump.
  3. Install the free end of the spring into the locating tang on the front case.
  4. Position the timing belt over the crankshaft sprocket, then over the camshaft sprocket. Slip the back of the belt over the tensioner wheel.
  5. Turn the camshaft sprocket in the opposite of its normal direction of rotation until the straight side of the belt is tight and be sure the timing marks align.
    NOTE If the timing marks are not properly aligned, shift the belt 1 tooth at a time in the appropriate direction until they are aligned.
  6. Loosen the tensioner mounting bolts so the tensioner works, without the interference of any friction, under spring pressure. Be sure the belt follows the curve of the camshaft pulley so the teeth are engaged all the way around. Correct the path of the belt, if necessary.
  7. Tighten the tensioner adjusting bolt, then the tensioner pivot bolt to 15-18 ft. lbs. (20-26 Nm).
    NOTE Bolts must be tightened in the stated order or tension won't be correct.
  8. Turn the crankshaft 1 turn clockwise until timing marks again align to seat the belt.
  9. Loosen both tensioner attaching bolts and let the tensioner position itself under spring tension. Retighten the bolts.
  10. Check belt tension by putting a finger on the water pump side of the tensioner wheel and pull the belt toward the water pump. The belt should move toward the pump until the teeth are approximately 1 / 2 of the way across the head of the tensioner adjusting bolt. Re-tension the belt, if necessary.
  11. Install the timing belt covers and all other related components.


  12. I have much more is this is not for your engine. Autozone.com has instructions and diagrams for all Hyundai Sonata engine sizes. Just let me know.

I have a 2004 Hyundai sonata 2.4L engine with automatic transmission. When a crankshaft sensor is replaced, it is neccessary to have the timing belt and its tensioner replaced also?


The 2.4 L engine has a timing belt & a balance belt. They should be replaced every 60,000 miles or every 5 years (whichever comes first). During belt replacement, the tensioner should be inspected for proper operation. If it's leaking grease or has collapsed, it must be replaced.

Timing belt replacement interval


My rule of thumb for Timing belts:
replace at 60,000 miles, and every 40,000 miles thereafter. Having said that, I often let
cars go until the timing belt starts showing signs of wear (usually every 50K - 75K miles)

But www.autozone.com (register free at www.autozone.com) is recommending for your
car driving in "severe driving conditions" (aka normal stop-start driving) that your 2000 Sonata
have:
60,000 miles - replace
90,000 miles - inspect for wear
120,000 miles - replace
150,000 miles - inspect for wear

The 155 page owners manual (I found one at the link below - you may prefer to try Hyundai)
makes no mention of the timing belt at all.

What is the millage that requires changing of timing belt?


Factory (most) recommends every 60k miles (i.e. 60k, 120k, 180k...). But as we all know, lifespan of belts (and all other parts) varies, depending on the driving conditions, weather, maintenance etc. Best thing to do is to do a visual check, and look for signs of slack, cracks etc. I used to drive a civic and never changed my timing belt till around 130k miles, and that's after it was submerged in a flashflood. Although I'd never recommend doing what I did, but if you're a little mechanically sound - periodically checking your belt is what I'd recommend. It doesn't mean that ritually replacing timing belts every 60k miles'll guarantee it'll never break ;-)<!-- from fixya rte -->

My 2005 Hyundai Sonata (V6-2.7L engine) has 52,000 miles on it. I took it to the shop and had it inspected. The tech said that I should replace the timing belt soon. This sounds suspicious as I thought...


Not on this year and make, Hyundai Sonata with a 2.7L engine, Hyundai recommends replacing timing belt every 60,000 miles or 48 months, whichever occurs first, this is an interference engine, which piston to valve damage will occur due to timing belt failure.

Is it necessary to change the timing belt in a 2004 Elantra VE with 65000 miles (105500 Km)? No problems with it, just mechanic says it's time.


60,000 miles is the typical recommended interval for timing belt replacement. The belt can become worn and skip a tooth or even break. In that event, the pistons can collide with the valves and cause a considerable (and expensive) amount of damage. Changing the timing belt at recommended intervals is good insurance to protect against valvetrain and piston damage due to belt failure.

A 2006 sonata 4 cyclinder does it have a timing belt or chain


If it is a chain then no it does not need to be changed. I would call the local dealer and give them the vin# to make sure 100% if it is a chain or a belt. Achain does have guides made of plastic that you may want to think about along with the tensioner. Good luck.
