Joel Automotive In action: nice Brian, I got a question here where I can not find the answer and I cannot figure out . some one did timing belt on 03 Hyundai sonata 2.4 and they left the balancer out time also cam both one tooth retarded and the crank shaft reluctor installed backwards , the customer was driving the vehicle hard start, and misfiring during driving , i corrected the timing and vehicle did not runned ok so I remove the spark plugs and found 2 of them cyl 2 and 4 smash like the piston hit them , so I replace all 4 vehicle ran good I took it for test drive about 7 miles on the way back starting misfiring , when I got to the work place I remove all spark plugs and I found number one complete smashed, that is weird I checked on the auto parts for oem and no oem plugs and compare them all of them have the same length in the treads , do you have any idea?? plugs I installed were oem all time
51Stroker: $300 for a head? I payed about $500 for my Golf, and that was Chinese, regular price $1100.
Shane Fleming: I have been told Hyundais before 2006 are notorious for problems.
s nav: junk the pain in the arse garbage.
ejhoney1: hey brian i was wondering once you compress the lifters to get the oil out, when i put it back together will the engine reprime the lifters or do i have to soak them in oil
wilsonryder: ez way of not letting this happen to you is do the freaking timing belt the right time
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.
jr9527852: 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.
EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
