My friend and I are trying to change the timing belt on this accent. He forgot to mark it. I found out that it needs to be 9 degrees before top dead center. We were told we needed a degree wheel to fix this. Can you lend any other info.

1st you may want make sure that's not an interference engine. if it is then chances are the valves are bend in the head. changing the timing belt probably won't help then. If its not an interference head, then you would need a timing mark diagram which can be found online. be very careful that all marks are aligned. when finshed installing the timing belt, rotate engine by hand twice and re-align marks before putting the rest back together! hyundai should be able to tell u if the engine runs interference or not.

first thing i need to know is did the timing belt break? second is are you sure you aligned the timing marks and after the belt tensioner was tight you rechecked to make sure the timing stayed where you had it. next step would be a compression check to if a valve was bent whenchanging the belt i have seen this happen and this engine is an interferance engine. later paul
