Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

3 Answers

There is a squeeling by the belt/pulley area

2004 santa fe 2.7L v6 AWD. There is a squeeling noise coming from the belt area. Never there when in motion, only when at a stop, idle, or in park. Sometimes its there, sometimes its not. All I know is its coming from the belt area. Could it be a loose belt, pulley, or something internal? All fluids are up to date. Also when the sound its there, its in sync with the RPM timing. Like as if something is on the belt hitting something and its only in one spot. Hard to describe. All I know is it gets loud at times that I get the stares from fellow drivers

It's a loose belt for sure.

If you have a spring loaded tensioner, and the belt has stretched with time, the tensioner will reach the limits of its travel without tensioning the belt enough to prevent that squeal.

If it has an adjustable tensioner, tighten the belt up.

Probably a pulley, alternator, ac compressor. you will need a stethoscope or a piece of rubber hose to listen to everything in the belt area. noise can travel, so be careful. more than one experienced tech has replaced a noisy part only to find out it was not the one making the noise. every tech but me. yeah right.

Generally on the santa fe it is located just behind the crankshaft pulley/harmonic balancer (the pully lowest in the engine compartment driven by the drive belt).

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.

Fan belt was broken at 28000 kms replaces but squeaking noise on start comes plz help to rectify the prob thanx


Spray some WD-40 on the pulleys...one at a time. This will let you know which pulley needs lube or replacement. If your belt is too tight it will squeek also.

Do the first thing...let me know what you find.

Will be putting on new one tomorrow. Hope it works. Will update.
