Condition of timing belt on 2000 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6?

Just bought immaculate 2000 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6 with 118,000 miles. Drives perfect. Been garaged the entire time, only one owner. It is unknown if the owner did a timing belt change at 60,000. Is there a way to tell the condition of the timing belt without removing too many parts? Thanks!

You would have to proceed like you were going to change the belt until you could see it to inspect it. Here is a link to instructions on inspecting and replacing it.

If you can just remove the upper timing belt cover is about the only way, also timing belt replacement or 48 months which ever comes first, good luk and hope this was very helpful.

Timing belt replacement interval


My rule of thumb for Timing belts:
replace at 60,000 miles, and every 40,000 miles thereafter. Having said that, I often let
cars go until the timing belt starts showing signs of wear (usually every 50K - 75K miles)

But www.autozone.com (register free at www.autozone.com) is recommending for your
car driving in "severe driving conditions" (aka normal stop-start driving) that your 2000 Sonata
have:
60,000 miles - replace
90,000 miles - inspect for wear
120,000 miles - replace
150,000 miles - inspect for wear

The 155 page owners manual (I found one at the link below - you may prefer to try Hyundai)
makes no mention of the timing belt at all.

I have a 2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6 and the dealer told me the left exhaust catalytic converter was bad. Is there any way around having to buy the replacement through the dealer for $1100.


Some companies make aftermarket cat's that are cheaper. (Bosal, eastern catalytic)
Check with www.rockauto.com for ideas
These may not fit perfect, but are usually cheaper, so use a good installer to put it in place.
Also, you might want a second opinion, as there is other issues that can cause a "cat condition."

My 2005 Hyundai Sonata (V6-2.7L engine) has 52,000 miles on it. I took it to the shop and had it inspected. The tech said that I should replace the timing belt soon. This sounds suspicious as I thought...


Not on this year and make, Hyundai Sonata with a 2.7L engine, Hyundai recommends replacing timing belt every 60,000 miles or 48 months, whichever occurs first, this is an interference engine, which piston to valve damage will occur due to timing belt failure.

Trying to replace serpintine belt but air conditioner pulley seems to sit lower than it does on diagram


I do not know what Diagram you are referring to. Also I am not sure if you have the Sonata with the 2.4L DOHC In-Line 4, or the Sonata GLS with the 2.5 SOHC V6.
In any case:
Click on the following Free-Direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagrams. Compare these with your Vehicle and/or Diagrams you have.

My Hyundai Sonata GLS, with 2.5 Liter 6 cyl.


You cannot, First thing you need to do is get the codes using a diagnostic scanner that is able to access the airbag module. Your basic code reader will not do this. The code will tell you what airbag has an issue. If your a smoker in the car most likley the ASH destroyed the clockspring under the steeing wheel.
