Question about Hyundai Motor 2002 Sonata

1 Answer

Have 02 sonata.. broke down on my wife today i got a car trailer and towed it to my dads started checking things. had spark, fuel pressure, tore off timing belt cover felt the belt.. has no tension on one side. completely loose when i wiggled it i can hear something loose.. took off all the belts, crank pulley and water pump pulley and the timing belt cover... the belt isnt broke but the idler pulley or the oil pump sprocket is loose and the belt is not tight on that side of the motor... when i turn the crank pulley everything seems to turn fine the belt doesnt seem to be slipping i'm just somewhat unsure about a few of the timing marks on some of the pulleys and if its worth trying to fix since it did break down due to the timing and i believe this is an interference motor(i'm asuming)? just a little advice anyone?

If the belt is still on the dot on the camshaft should line up onthe 12 oclock if you look close there is a mark behind it the crank mark is about 10 or 11 oclock you will see the marks make sure no1 is at top dead center if all this is good look to the left buy the camshaft and there is another pully on the left under the camshaft this is the adjust pully to take the slack out lossen it and push it till the slack come out ok and yes it is a interference motor hope this helps

Have a 1995 suzuki sidekick that will not start. It gets fire and I have tried starting fluid in the throttle body and nothing. I just put a new exhaust system on it. Before I drove it to town then on way...

the G16 engines all need a cam belt every 60k or will do that like clock work, G16B MPI 4 injector or G16A, TBI ,one injector engine.?????????????????????????????????????????????

compression is not OK, it\'s 150psi or more.

is it? good?, and to run a 4 banger, all 4 need to work. think, 4 engines.

sure the cat broke up, that can clog some mufflers. and cause huge back pressure. (the engine pumps air, if you put a stopper in the exhaust the AIR PUMP DIES)

all engines.

its an old car.

i cant tell you what order to do things.

but my tool box is full of tools , is yours?

the cat back pressure check at the 02 is 2 psi or less at 2500 rpm, but yours dont start, so dropping the exhaust solves that.

i just rack back the exhaust manifold on the bolts/studs.

mr, Otto cycle engine is not new ,nor has it changed.

it still plays by the book , compresson, spark, fuel, in that order.

so compress x4 is what tested sparks out, WIDEOPEN throttle

80psi is common reading x4 (dont be lazy do all 4 )

80 is retarded cam, timing belt never ever serviced, and is now slipped. or heck busted

150+ is good

next is SPARK got spark on all 4?

all are dead, or #1 timing is way retared see slipped belt.

ok spark is good, and timing set.

so it runs on test fuel.

yes, , ok yes, IT WILL.

now we work fueling LAST.

cant burn fuel with no compression or timed correctly

no tools? , all is lost.

no tools , no joy.

(that means basic, meters and gauges, i assume every mech has wrenches, its a given)

Engine bucking when towing heavy trailer.One ton with 454 motor check engine light came on also.

I would first check condition of ignition system, wires, plugs etc, as well as have a fuel pressure test done, or at very least change fuel filter. Old plug wires and plugs tend to break down when under load especially, and a plugged fuel filter can restrict necessary flow of extra fuel for load condition as well.
Certainly other things may come in to play here, but that is a good place to start.

@the car was runing fine and tree dayz ago it stop i had it towed and it started and today it stop again and now will not start turns over but will not start

You should start with a fuel filter, if it hasn't been replaced recently, and see if it starts and runs after that. If it doesn't the fuel pump pressure and the spark to the spark plugs will need to be checked.

Truck will turn over but won't start

When you are trying to start the truck, does the theft light on the dash flash rapidly ?
- This would be a problem with the key used, PATS is not recognizing it as a programmed key, try another key
- Could be a problem with the PATS transceiver if 2nd programmed key does the same thing, wait on confirm to get into this, kind of long.

Have you checked the Fuel Inertia switch in the passenger side kick panel ( button reached from the top, needs to be pressed down ) ?

When you turn the key from off to run ( do not start ) do you hear the fuse pump run for ~ 2 seconds ? Should be able to verify at the schrader valve at the fuse rail for pressure ( safety glasses and a rag )
- Fuel pump fuse is one to check, Engine compartment fuse panel, fuse # 10 & Fuse # 18
- Fuel pump relay could be a problem, can swap with a trailer tow relay from the battery charge function ( if the trailer tow package is installed ).
- If both of these are no change, turn the truck to the run position ( do not start ) and hit the bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber mallet. Could be the fuel pump is plugged or on its way out.

Other item to check, is the last time the fuel filter way changed.

Car turns over great getting fuel and spark but wont start

Spark without fuel = just spark. :) Are you getting fuel movement? You could have a bad/clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump - could be a few things. Check to make sure you're getting fuel.

What is the towing capacity of a 2005 Seneca? And what gives? It refuses to recognize my make and model so I had to post it under Sonata.

Hey, we all make mistakes. Elantra I have head of. The 2005 Hyundai Elantra can tow 3.086 Lbs if the trailer you are towing is equipped with trailer brakes. If the trailer is not equipped with trailer brakes it can only tow 1,000 lbs. This is quite allot for a sedan. Remember do not tow over 1,000 lbs without trailer brakes and that includes the weight of the trailer. You will never be able to stop it and it may jackknife.
