Your timing belt should have been done at 60,000, make sure it has, ask the owner if you can. If not, Get it done. I wouldn't risk it. While you have the front of the engine off, replace the belt tensioner and the water pump. Are you sure this has a belt? If it has a chain, don't worry about, just change the oil. Check the belts, fluids, might change the filter in the tranny. And fill up the battery. Should be OK.

Is the 2002 hyaundai santefe a zero tolerance motor


The 2002 Santa Fe 4 cyl and 6 cyl engines are deemed "Interference" engines. If the timing belt should break or slip a few teeth, the pistons will strike the valves and most likely destroy the engine. Thus it is very important to change the timing belt every 80,000 - 100,000 miles (along with a replacement water pump). I recommend buying a belt/pump kit and having a local independent shop do the install (much cheaper than a dealer's $600 charge!).

Belt & pump kits are available via Amazon:

Starting in 207 Hyundai started shifting all of their engines to metal timing "chains"... more or less eliminating the possibility of such a problem. However, water pumps still go out... but not nearly as often or catastrophic a problem!

CURRENTLY MILEAGE IS 100K. SHOULD I CHANGE TIMING BELT AND TUNE UP EVEN THO RUNNING O K ?


timing belt is due no more then 90,000. change it before it breaks. will be very mad if it does. change the water pump the same time. tune up later. cost a few hundred to have the 2 changed. if never done one have a shop change it. if not done correctly you will mess up the timing and cause valve damage

The timing belt runs from the crankshaft pulley up to the head, around the cam gears, back down, over the water pump and back to the crankshaft. Timing belt replacement is a job that is time consuming, and, at times, difficult. If you do not have the proceedure, I can send it to you, but, this is a very specific job, and having the belt incorrect in any one of 6 possible "mistake" positions will result in a no-start or run poor condition. Timing belt replacement for that vehicle is recommended at 90,000 miles.
