Did the timing belt break?
I dont think that it would... But with the water pump locked up. It could have jumped over a tooth when you was driving it. If the belt got hot and streched. maybee???? But I think it will break before it can jump over a tooth. Or if even one tooth will cause your engine to have to be replaced. It didnt overheat? Or die? did you turn it off and tow it?

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!

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!

How often do i have to change the timing belt?


Each manufacturer has their own recommendation. Honda says 105,000 miles, Domestic say 60-80,000 . Depending on driving conditions, I would recommend 80,000 for anything. Replace the water pump if driven by the belt and the related components too.

Would like to know if water pump needs to be changed when doing timing belt on 2004 hyundai santa fe 2.0 liter and how long of a job is it


Hi....
On your 2004 Santa Fe.
The water pump is not driven by the Timing belt.
Is not stricttly nessesary to replace togheter. they are individual.
But I recomend replace the timing belt when you replace the water pump. Because for get axces to the water pump,
you need to remove all the Timing covers.
Is just a few more minutes to remove the Timing belt.
Inspect the Engine seals, cam and crank Replace if need.
My PC show me a 2.4L 4cyl. for 2004 santa fe.

Ok.. The labor for that job Removing the Timing belt and water Pump ...IS:
2.8 hours. just the water pump 2.4 hours.

OK.. I hope this help on your question...
Thank you for use fixya..
