Wouldn't reccomend trying to change it if you have never done one before, it could cost you a helluva lot more.

WHERE IS THE SERPENTINE BELT LOCATED ON A 2003 HYUNDAI SONATA


Vehicles Covered: Hyundai Sonata 2002-2004 (2.4L & 2.7L Engines)

In 2003, Hyundai produced two types of Sonata:
Available engines:
4 Cylinders 2.4L VIN "S", MFI DOHC - see Figures 1 and 3.
6 Cylinders 2.7L VIN "H", MFI DOHC - see Figures 2 and 3.

To differentiate between these types of 2003 Hyundai Sonatas, the VIN 8th digit (Engine Type) will either be "S" or "H" as in the table above.

To locate the Engine drive belt, jack up the vehicle & place it onto jack stands, then slide under the car (toss a cardboard mat down first), then, once under the car, remove the (plastic) engine splash shield. Once removed, the drive & accessory belts are easily observed.

The Belt Routing on the Left is "With A/C", on the Right is "without A/C"

Inspection - Drivebelt and Accessory Belts

Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. Worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced.

Drivebelt Removal & Installation - 2003 Sonata (2.4L and 2.7L engines)

Raise and support the vehicle.
Remove the engine splash shield.
Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to release the drive belt tension.
Remove the drive belt from the alternator.
Slowly release the drive belt tensioner.
Remove the drive belt from the accessory drive pulleys.

To install:

Install the drive belt to the accessory drive pulley.
Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise.
Install the drive belt to the alternator.
Ensure the drive belt is properly aligned and seated into the grooves of the accessory drive pulleys.
Slowly release the drive belt tensioner
Install the engine splash shield.
Lower the vehicle.

Here's the best illustration I can find of the Hyundai 2.4L and 2.7L engines - the drivebelt seems to be located on the passenger side of both of these transversely mounted engines.

Timing belt broke at about 55 miles per hour. do you think the valves are bent and what parts do I need to buy other than belt? Oh 2001 hyundai sonada with 2.6L motor. THANKS Jimmy


The 2.4l and 2.5l engines are interference engines, meaning it is highly likely that you bent your valves when your timing belt broke. Besides the timing belt, you may need a new belt tensioner and pulleys. I would replace the water pump too.

What is the replacement schedule for 2006 hyudai sonata timing belt


Both engines .. the four and the six have timing chains.. not belts.. so there is no replacement for the life of the engine.

Some of the six cylinder models did have problems with a Timing Chain tensioner.. if you have the six and it makes a rattling sound when first started..that could be an indicator. There is a TSB (technical service bulletin) on this and it should identify which cars are affected.

Best of luck!

I replaced both belts and set the number plug in the up position and adjusted cams and the car would not start. What's I'm doing wrong?


Don't know what size engine ,so assuming it's a six cylinder, 2 belts. There are two up positions on a cylinder. compression stroke and exhaust stroke. you could have the cam/s off 180 degrees.

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.

Hyundai sonata changed my timing belt and engine would not start?


Why did you change the belt? Did the belt break first? If the belt broke the engine may have bent valves in the cylinder head. If you were just changing it because it was time you may have gotten the crankshaft to camshaft timing off or out of time. Does the engine sound normal when you spin it over with the starter? If it sounds faster than normal it probably has bent valves. Tommy

How to change sonata timing belt


You do not state the type of engine - 6 cylinder has a timing chain, not necessary to replace.
