    Most timing belts outlive the engine itself. If there are engine noises, either have a mechanic look it over or do not buy could very easily be buying an engine ready to blow any day.

SOURCE: When should I change my timing belt on my 2007

you wont need to change it until at least 100,000 miles. Typically that will last the life of the car. But alot of people, including myself, wait until it breaks to replace it. It is about $1000 to replace because the engine has to be partially disassembled.

Was It Starting Before?
Who Changed It?

If The Belt Broke And The Belt Was Just Put Back On Without It Being Put In (TDC) Top Dead Center The Car Will Not Run. Warning! Trying To Start It Over And Over Will Destroy The Engine.The Engine Works By Being (TDC) Top Dead Center The Timing Controls When The Cylinders Come To The Top. The cylinders Are Controlled By The Timing So When The Spark Plugs Try To Ignite. The Cylinders Are Not In Position And Thus Will Not Create Combustion For The Engine To Run.

Does the 2006 accent have a timing belt or chain, and what is the recommended change schedule? If the belt breaks, will it ruin the engine?

It uses a belt. The maintenance schedule is to replace it every 60,000 miles or every 5 years (whichever occurs first). The 1.6 L engine is an 'interferrence' engine which means if the engine valve timing jumps, the pistion heads will strike the valves if they're open when they should be closed/closing.

I have 65,000 miles on my 2007 hyundai accent hatchback, i was told i need to change the timing belt, will it hurt the car if i still drive it until i can afford to change the belt?

The risk you run is having the belt break which can cause more extensive internal engine damage. You should at least have it looked at which can be done by a trusted mechanic. When you go in don't mention you can only do it if "it is going to break tomorrow". You should consider the cost of both scenarios. This should be a $400 or less to complete. Let me know if you need anything further.

The cylinders will misfire, I did it on a Honda Civic and lost a cylinder. Rigged it so the car would run on only 3 cylinders and I returned my lease not long after. The timing belt is disastrous if it isn't changed. It used to not be a belt, it was a timing CHAIN, and no one ever worried about it. Now we have a belt and when it goes, be somewhere else...

Bottom line, expensive if it has really gone, if it just needs a new timing belt, no big deal, usually 90000 miles I believe is when you would change it, but not sure on the Accent.

Good luck!!

I have a 2006 hyundai accent it is idling high and it seems to me that the tranny is slipping when you first start the car and take off, the rmps hit about 4000 before it finally kicks, my check engine...

No one could tell me what was wrong with my 2006 hyundai . Why the check engine light kept being on. Autozone, Napa, Advance auto, their FREE diagnostic machine could not figure the problem.It kept reading p0012 and they didn't know what exactly that meant so... I had to give in and take it to the hyundai dealership and pay$99 for a real diagnostic test. That's when I was told it was my oil control valve and the problem got fixed, no more headache!

DID THE BELT BREAK AND THEN IT WAS CHANGED. If so then you may have bent valve. IF NOT then vehicle may be timed wrong. Here is a diagram of your timing marks, contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA
