YES AND NO

you may need to have the valves and the head replaced , as when the belt breaks, then the pistons may hit the valves...bend them...then crack the head.

You wont need a new motor, just have yours repaired......by him telling you to get a new motor, it increases his profit, and makes his job easier...he may not know how to repair that motor, so its easier to just replace it.

Get another opinion from another garage.

You may just try overhauling the motor, if the belt breaks it may damage the racker arm and the valves. just try buying the necessary parts thats not been damaged and your engine will be just fine.

Timing belt broke on hyundai sonata 2002 what should I do? The mechanic saya theres a ten percent chance that replacing the belt will solve the problem.


You have had contact with a mechanic

Why are you asking for advise or a personal
decision?

Wasn't all your thoughts & questions answered?

Is the car still at the shop waiting on your authorization
to continue

We need that kind of info.

We're not experts that even know if your engine is
an interferance type,you have to tell us. That is why
I guess the mechanic is expecting major damage from
a broken belt

The shop still has to look inside the cylinders with the
proper camera they probalby don't have or ever heard
of ,to look for damage

They have to do a cylinder leak down test for valve damage

If everything is good & you got lucky,then you replace the
water pump,all idler pulleys,tensioners & the broken belt

You can have your mechanic pull the valve cover. Loosen the bolts that hold the cam(s) in place and do a compression test. If one or more cylinders is low on compression the motor is junk. If the compression test is fine reinstall the cam and replace the timing belt and you should be good to go.

Timing belt broke at about 55 miles per hour. do you think the valves are bent and what parts do I need to buy other than belt? Oh 2001 hyundai sonada with 2.6L motor. THANKS Jimmy


The 2.4l and 2.5l engines are interference engines, meaning it is highly likely that you bent your valves when your timing belt broke. Besides the timing belt, you may need a new belt tensioner and pulleys. I would replace the water pump too.

Replacing timing belt


According to THIS ebay listing there are (kinda) 2: 1 is the T-belt; the other is a Balance Shaft Belt. Ask the shop what the belts are for (don't offer the info) and see what they say.

good luck,

Timing belt


I call B.S! A 6 mo old belt won't look old and cracked like a 5 or 10 year old belt. Sure they can't exactly tell that it's new (6 mo is not) but they can tell that it is not worn! My mother in law used to get lied to by mechanics all the time. I would replace her brakes and two months later a mechanic would tell her she needed new brakes and that it was dangerous to continue driving. I would get so mad that they would con her like that.

Allways ask for your old parts back from the shop!

There are Two Balance Shafts on the 2.4. Did your mechanic also change the balance shaft belt when he changed the timing belt? If he didn't, you'll want to do that. Since you mentioned the old belt was missing teeth, those loose teeth flying around could have damaged the crank position sensor and sensor blade (tone wheel). Also, the front balance shaft (on the side of the engine nearest the radiator), has THREE different positions when the timing mark is lined up - here's the glitch - ONLY ONE of them is the correct one - this is probably where your vibration is.

Timming belt broke on my 01 Hyundai Sonata while driving


Yea you should always be aware that engine damage can and will most likely occur. If you stop and turned off the engine immediately I wouldn't worry about it. Just install a new belt and tensioner make sure its on the correct timing before operating your vehicle.
