their under the plastic cover on top of the engine ,and you will need a 16mm plug socket with a long extension to reach them

Most manufactures recommend changing the Timing belt at around 60,000 miles / 100,000 Km or 7 years, whichever comes first. They have been known to last a lot longer than that but it is cheaper to have it replaced than to risk critical and expensive engine damage if it breaks.

Hyundai recommend a flush every 2 years,i personally find that if i run my car with a 50/50 mix,then i only flush at 4 years.....but i do check the specific gravity every year....and obviously look for oil in system as a service item.
As a matter of interest VW flush is every 4 years......

Hi, if everything works and the alternator has been replaced as you said and the problem still persist, then check the crankshaft position sensor........

You need an OBDII code reader in order to read the code from the engine. If you have one, you just plug it in to the jack located on the lower left side of the dash, near the steering wheel, and start the car. Also, Midas has been offering free code readings, and it takes about 5 minutes.

any "adjustments" you carry out to reduce engine speed at any given road speed will affect the speedo/odometer reading,BUT,the simplest/cheapest way of reducing revs is to fit bigger wheels/ tyres.say fit 15" instead of 13"with the same profile tyres.this will reduce your revs by about 500 @75mph.but the speedo will read 70mph.also acceleration times will be considerably reduced.and put an extra strain on the clutch/engine.
alternatively,swop the whole drivetrain to diesel,75mph=3500.

Ok, with the battery, oil etc lights are governed by simple circuits, and therfore, as soon as they receive power, and earth, they turn off right away.

With the other lights, the malfunction and EPS lights, these go through a self-test function where they check a number of sensors, not just one, and they do this very quickly......the malfunction light checks out 20-35 different sensors, and in less than 1-2 seconds, thats fast.........

However, if they STAY on, then this is where it detects a problem and you should come back and see us again.

if the timing belt breaks it will bend the valves

2007 Hyundai... | Answered on Jun 24, 2010

The risk you run is having the belt break which can cause more extensive internal engine damage. You should at least have it looked at which can be done by a trusted mechanic. When you go in don't mention you can only do it if "it is going to break tomorrow". You should consider the cost of both scenarios. This should be a $400 or less to complete. Let me know if you need anything further.

You have a short somewhere, put an amp meter on the battery and check the draw, then start pulling fuses until it stops indicating a power draw...then check that circuit.

Also check your alternator and make sure it is charging alright.

Specify part.

First, you have to remove the bezel that surrounds the radio. You have to find something thin and sturdy to slide in behind the bezel to carefully pry it away from the dash assembly. Something along the lines of a plastic spackling knife will prevent scratching the dash. There are no screws, only clips holding that bezel in place.

Once you remove the bezel, you will see four screws holding the stock radio in place. Remove those, then slide the radio out.

You will need to unplug the wiring and antenna from the rear of the unit for complete removal.
