Question about 1997 Hyundai Sonata
The sonata has a 16 valve machine and works with a timing belt and not a timing chain. if the belt snaps it will bend the valves. not all the valves but some of them. a secondhand top with valves shouldn't be expensive. I would change all the valves. sometimes a valve cen bend so minimal it can't be picked up by the eye. you don't want take the top off again. it's a fairly simple machine. a mechanic should help you with the timing once you're done. good luck
