Question about 2005 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

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 they were supposed to last closer to 100,000 miles. Could this be correct?

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.

Took my car an 08 Hyundai Sonata for an oil change to the dealer and they told us there was sludge in the engine we have been keeping up with oil changes ,is there a defect with the sonata's engin


There are two main causes for sludge, not changing the oil and filter at regular times, and not running the engine long enough to get it hot.
You might want to get a second opinion from a shop other than the dealer. The dealer may have a sales promotion on engine flushes this month.

I have a 2004 Hyundai sonata 2.4L engine with automatic transmission. When a crankshaft sensor is replaced, it is neccessary to have the timing belt and its tensioner replaced also?


The 2.4 L engine has a timing belt & a balance belt. They should be replaced every 60,000 miles or every 5 years (whichever comes first). During belt replacement, the tensioner should be inspected for proper operation. If it's leaking grease or has collapsed, it must be replaced.

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.
