Serenidad y paciencia: Chain drive timing.... oldie but goodie....
briansmobile1: If you do it at home- be sure to compress your hydraulic lifters in a vice slowly and padded with a rag to empty them of oil. You'll thank me!
agbz: This happened to me once and had to pay nearly $2400 for a shop to do it. It happened again and was told the engine needs a rebuild. They said one of the spark plugs was smashed completely. Would you consider fixing it at home or does it take a bit of expertise? Seems like you know a lot because you're doing it at home(?). Thanks.
Medo Al-hamadani: It happened with me last year damnt, I had to buy a new engine
mewsbee: Ha...CARnage...I get it...
briansmobile1: I've had pretty good luck with Mitsubishi's myself.
jerryr952: I have a 2006 eclipse 3.8v and I'm always afraid that this might happen. I checked the belt last year and seem find. No engine noise as of now either.
Usernameinvalid16: I like my 2.3 Quad 4 with a Timing Chain lol
Albinus81: Yep - the $1K here is for a used one! :(
briansmobile1: To be clear, that's for a used one.
Albinus81: I'm jealous as to your pricing in the US. $300 for a head? More like $1K here :(
Court K: Does that include the 2.7 L? Do I have the same timing belt eating problem?
briansmobile1: Way to stay ahead of the game Craig! You're the man!
Craig Van Tichelt: I have a 2002 Santa Fe and just got my timing belt and tune up done. I did tihs because of your video and the carnage that would happen if I didnt. LOL Thanks a ton for making it brother.
Jayson McBride: Brian is a hottie!
rehlek: the 2.7 is underpowered i agree with you fully but the 2.7 motor is very solid i've never had to replace any of the motors for failure, i have how ever had to replace 3,5 motors due to timing belt failure. hyundai should leave those mitsu engines alot and stay making their own stuff
Daniel Cardona: I was looking into getting a Santa Fe they are good bullet proof trucks just get the 3.5L Engine not the 2.7 its terrible and way underpowered for this big truck that is probably why its chewing up these belts.
NWB1989: Not only it goes to Santa Fe owners, but also along with some Kia and Sonata owners with the same engine.
briansmobile1: Yes. They were fine and still are.
A2892Z: So the pistons are still safe to use even though they have dent damage by the valve collision?
briansmobile1: No problem at all. Just be sure to get a 2004 or newer if you're shopping them. ; )
briansmobile1: I don't know. I don't own one. I know better.
FrankANiti: they were lucky the last one i tore down the valves were broke off and had flipped upside down and punched holes in the piston.
MrAbro42: Oh, Thanks!
briansmobile1: Amen brother! Halleluja!
TheK24Kyle: every time i see one of these on the road from accel it makes this LOUD whining noise as it picks up speed form under the hood. im not suprised. my friends 07 sedona EX has 30K miles and the transmission WHINES, the car dies all the time with no battery power, the roof leaks, the dash creaks (lol), and the loud whine means the timing belt means its crapping out. and the transmission is on craps door as well as the TPMS system and front suspension. sweeeeet
MrMK94: Some of the timing belts only last 30K miles?!?! WOW!!!!!!
MrAbro42: So am I ok with my 2011 accent, commuter car?
Lasselkv28: Looking at the pistons this engine seems to be out of adjustment or worn. Also the plugs looks too dark on the center electrode?
But nice video as always :-)
briansmobile1: In a way it's nice that the valves are as soft as they are.
MrShitrope: surprised it didnt bend the con rods or dent the main bearings
yourleftnut1: i drive one and someone stupid hyundai made it so tough to work on the engine. just replacing the spark plugs can take several hrs.. POS hyundai.
cannonball666: My wife drives a 2002 and it absolutely sucks. So poorly designed.
briansmobile1: Right on. We checked the pistons- they were kissed, but they were Ok.
Frederick Bock: Brian, 300 dollars for a complete 16 valve head is a good price, are the pistons ok? MANY years ago i had a 69 Z-28 Camaro with an LT-1 350, solid lifter cam, 2.02 intake heads, etc anyway one evening while thrashing a valve unlocked, hit the piston which in turn pushed the valve through the water jacket area of the head, i was just going to replace the heads but a friend told me to check the piston so when we did it did have a small crack which possibly could have broken later on
millwrightman99: Secondly even if your conscientious and change the belt at 60 thousand miles the repair costs you a days labor in some cases and some companies stick the water pump in there .I could go on but my blood pressure is boiling ., for another thing I've got a Jeep Liberty that has an accessory belt with 150 thousand miles that still looks like new , why do these pieces of crap break at less than sixty thousand ,Planned obsolescence by criminal manufacturers , and that goes for all of them ,
millwrightman99: What really pisses me off about car companies is their lack of concern for the crappy engineering they put out .I maintain if you are going to sell an interference engine to stupid consumers at least put in a timing chain , dont
't give me that crap about noise and extra inertia , I know its all bullcrap .
Poor bastards buy an economy car only to get screwed by ridiculous repair costs .
In most cases timing chains last as long as the car , so don't let anyone give you that bull line either .
briansmobile1: You sound like you come from a long line of balebetishen yidden. If young people are impressed upon with sayings their potential, they will not be satisfied with less. And their fear will not be in attempting the things of their said potential, but in stopping short of it. Sometimes these limiting sayings become true only because people speak of them and believe them. It has nothing to do with the ability of the person or the group.
Shepperd November: Tsuris!? If I didn't know better I'd say you'r Jewish.People often say to me ''Its very unusual to find a Jewish man who's good with his hands.''I reply ''Really.You know, there was this one guy,----what was his name?-----you know, he was a carpenter.----worked with wood---used tools---built things.The pity of it is that I hear this from my own people! SEE YA! G-d bless and la-chiem!
briansmobile1: Good for you brother! You can either do it right, or wait till you've got a REAL tsuris on your hands!
Shepperd November: Great stuff Brian! I've preached 'till I'm blue in the face about timing belts( and other things ).I do the work free for members of my synogogue charging only for parts. They usually say '' I don't have the money.'' When something like this happens I say '' Now you REEEEAAAALLLLY don't have the money!
modelleg: Car-nage I get it.
john lopez: WOW THATS PRETTY SAD
Tadeu Lima: Brian i rely like your videos and i learn with them. That said it is a rely bad idea not to replace tensioner and idler wheel each time you do the timing belt. They have small bearing and for each revolution of the engine they do at least 5 revolutions, because of that they are under severe wear and can fail resulting in the same thing that happened with this Hyundai. Regards from Portugal
briansmobile1: I don't replace them till after 150K.
Upallnight: You forgot to include the tensioner and idler wheel(s) when you have the timing belt out.
ILiekFudge: 300 seems cheap for a new head
briansmobile1: I'd just get it done. These and Audi TT's are just not worth the risk.
Craig Van Tichelt: Brian...I have a 2002 Santa Fe, 130k miles as of last week and the car stutters and hesitates at various points of acceleration, especially at around 39 mph. Can you tell me if there are any symptoms of a timing belt going bad and what to maybe look for...or do you just get it done at 30 to 40k miles ? Thanks - Craig
