I have a 2005 Santa Fe with 69,000 miles on it. I am going to drive it another 3,ooo without changing the timingbelt. Should I be worried?


CAUTION: If your Santa Fe has the 4 cylinder engine (2.4 Lit I4), that's DEFINITLY a risk. Get the belt inspected! The 2.4 lit 4 cylinder is notorious for belt failure (even before 60,000 miles due to the heat generated by the engine in the timing belt area. There is also a balance belt accompanying the timing belt on the 2.4 lit -- it is also prone, but not like the timing belt).

If it's the 2.7 or the 3.5 Lit V6, I still recommend you have the belt inspected by a competent technician.

I have a 2004 Santa Fe with 39000 miles when can I aspect the driving or timing belt to go out


The timing belts must be replaced every 5 years or 50k miles, whatever comes first. The other belts whenever they give signs of slipping, no fixed date.

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!

Does a timing belt have to be changed at 5 years or is it based on milage. I have a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe that only has 25,000 miles. Does the timing belt have to be changed because it is 5 years old?


Usually a timing belt replacement is based on mileage not age. However, I would have the belt visually inspected to make sure it still is in good condition. If the belt breaks it can cause serious engine damage. The inspection should cost you very little as most newer cars has inspection plattes that come off with a few bolts, you could even do it yourself. I would think that you are fine, but better safe then sorry. My hyundai elantra went for 120,000 miles with the same timing belt and is still going today with its new owner.

HI Santa fes are good cars thay just are very touchy when they dont get there fluilds changed. Every 30,000 miles change the coolant and trans fluild. Also the timing belt has to be changed every 60,000 miles or around that. im not saying if you go a mile over bad things are going to happen just keep up on it and it will run forever. I have seeen tham will 200,000 miles on tham and still going strong.
