I only have had one issue with a mis-firing, but that was quickly handled with Hyundai's great warrenty. Half the price of Michelin. Detach the timing belt from the crankshaft and camshaft. Last night when I went to start my car it would not want to start. I commute 100 miles a day to school thats why my mileage is so high. Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Thanks, Jeff Regarding the problem with starting the car, could be anything, even a weak battery.
Posted on Oct 04, 2009 Aimee, It is possible the crankshaft sensor is faulty when engine performance deteriorates. Take just one spark plug wire off one plug by grabbing the spark plug wire boot and not the wire itself. I suppose there have been a few times where they've been very beneficial to him when he's had to plow his way in and out of driveways that hadn't been cleared, but we do a lot of driving to and from the same places often at the same time and there's been absolutely no difference in the way our vehicles have handled normal winter road conditions. Standing in front of the car, the 4 spark plugs are located laterally left to right in the recessed area underneath where the plastic engine cover was removed. Remove the passenger side front wheel. Nov 01, 2009 There are Two Balance Shafts on the 2. The stuff we normally encounter in a winter around here.
It has several Diagrams including the Timing Belt + Marks for your 2004 Hyundai Sonata 2. It's a great car to learn to drive in because it handles well, and is pretty standard. Strongly suggest you have a hyundai qualified mechanic do it as it will save you money in the long run. This one isn't particularly tricky, so someone who's competent and reasonably knowledgeable should be able to do a good job. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa. Dealer told me not to do that because they don't use Hyundai product hence will void remainder of my warranty. I've slid due to road conditions and always gained control which is great in a small car like this.
Since timing belts are made of rubber, they will wear out over time and require scheduled maintenance. Make sure your motor is off and cool before you start. So money right now is pretty tight. Any advice my dear Hyundai buddies Are you the original owner? Loosen the second inner… It took me around 12 hours, and I'm certain I could have done this quicker, but it was my first time on this vehicle. Disconnect the tensioner and the idler pulley for the timing belt with a socket wrench. Remove the top engine plastic cover 4.
Guess I can't argue with the folks who like them, but like I said - I have just never had the need. The 2003 Hyundai Sonata is available with a four-cylinder 2. The battery is fine and the starter seems to be okay. As a teenager I hate paying for gas but this car actually gets really good gas millage compared to others out there. I have a buddy that is in his car all day as an insurance appraiser and the company pays for him to put snows on his fleet car. If the timing belt breaks, the engine will fail to operate. If so, don't replace the water pump.
Since you mentioned the old belt was missing teeth, those loose teeth flying around could have damaged the crank position sensor and sensor blade tone wheel. Id it wise to call Midas and ask what they charge? It's not the smoothest drive on the highway but it'll get you where you need to go. The connector to this sensor is located in the illustration. When making a decision on the timing belt remember that the 60,000 mile recomendation by Hyundai that needs to be done to maintain the warrenty is a statistical thing. They run quite and they hold up very well - no history of broken cords, sidewall failures, etc. For my style of driving and the cars I drive, I just don't see enough benefit to me. Remove plastic cover from engine and place it off to the side out of your way.
It is on the side toward the firewall near the bottom. Do you own any basic tools? The log also tells you everything that needs to be done 60K miles. As long as you document what you've done in the maintenance log that came with the car, you're covered under warranty. I am a young professional who does travel and sales, and this car is just slick looking and plush enough to take customers out in, but not so much that I look like a wana be rock star! Posted on Dec 17, 2009 Yoy will get a diagram and how to do it from a workshop manual Gregorys or haynes as it is involved to explain here. Did your mechanic also change the balance shaft belt when he changed the timing belt? How much should I expect to be charged. Even if you don't, you can do the tune up work yourself plugs, wires, oil change, air filter change, etc.
I guess I will just do the belt for now. Any advice my dear Hyundai buddies How much should I expect to be charged. This was the first time ever this had happened. I shared this car with my sister and my mom and it's still running really well. Understand they'll probably charge more due to their higher cost, but if everything else is reasonable, it may be a good alternative.
