I need a diagram of timing marks for a hyundai sonata 98 2.5L EF


Yoy will get a diagram and how to do it from a workshop manual (Gregorys or haynes) as it is involved to explain here. Strongly suggest you have a hyundai qualified mechanic do it as it will save you money in the long run. IT is not just belts that need replacing but idler pullets and hydraulic adjuster (if you have one) as well as crank seal and cam shaft seal. Oil is the biggest killer of timing belts and all except the pulleys have oil in their presence.

Timing belt broke on hyundai sonata 2002 what should I do? The mechanic saya theres a ten percent chance that replacing the belt will solve the problem.


You can have your mechanic pull the valve cover. Loosen the bolts that hold the cam(s) in place and do a compression test. If one or more cylinders is low on compression the motor is junk. If the compression test is fine reinstall the cam and replace the timing belt and you should be good to go.

Tiburon timing belt broke, replaced, won't start


Did you make sure you set cam & crank timing ? If the belt is off one tooth it will cause this. Recheck belt timing first.

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.

Getting P0011 code on Hyundai Sonata. Can anyone tell me what it means?


more than likely you have a bad oil control valve if in fact you have an 06 sonata. They are chain driven engines... You can ohm out the valve and get a good reading even when the valve is bad. Pull it out and check to see if it is clogged, if it is thats more likely your problem. If it is clean, go ahead and replace the valve. Hyundai calls them the oil control valve (OCV) and usually located on the head close the the variable valve sprocket.

Alternator belt replacement


Check Your Timing Belt
  • Check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing belt. Replacement for Hyundai Sonatas is 60,000 miles.
  • Locate the timing belt and examine it for breaks, damage, fraying, worn spots or looseness.
  • Inspect the belt for cracked or missing teeth that may be the result of foreign material collecting between them.
  • Determine if the timing belt damage is on both sides. Single-side damage may be caused by the timing belt's guide.
    Remove Your Timing Belt

  • Disengage the negative battery cable.
  • Turn the tensioner arm to the right 14° and take the timing belt off its pulley.
  • Take out the coolant pump, idler, tensioner and crankshaft pulleys and both timing belt covers.
  • Remove the engine's mounting insulator and mount bracket and the auto tensioner.
  • Align the crankshaft's timing mark so the first cylinder piston is at "Top Dead Center" (TDC). The camshaft sprocket and cylinder head cover timing marks also should align.
  • Unfasten the timing belt.


    Replace Your Timing Belt

  • Examine the cam and crankshaft sprockets. Replace if there is excessive wear or other damage.
  • Position the new timing belt on the sprockets.
  • Relax the timing belt tensioner so it can make contact with the belt. Adjust the belt to the tension recommended in your vehicle owner's manual. Also align the timing indicators on the cam, crank and other sprockets.
  • Return the engine to the 0° mark by turning it two revolutions in the direction of travel.
  • Secure the timing belt cover and reinstall whatever was removed to access the timing cover.
  • Reconnect the negative battery cable and any other items that were disconnected.
  • Start the engine and look for leaks

I have sonata gold timing belt braoken now i want to change it but i dont no where is the timing marking pls tell me about this


hi from the uk if your timing belt broke whilst driving? then i'm afraid you cannot just fit/replace belt as you will have caused damage either serious? or hopefully minor to the valves ie you will have bent some valves due to the designe of engine however to assess damage will req cyl head removal for investigation on damage ? the belt may have either broken or the tensioner collapsed causing belt failure ? these belts req to be renewed as a kit as specified in service manual/handbook if you do intend to D I Y ? the repair/s then i can scan/e mail you full instructions + diagram of c belt and timemarks+tensioner but advise you check out damage 1st b4 proceeding further ? hope this helps and wish you luck
