Removal & Installation




CAUTION
Timing belt maintenance is extremely important. All Hyundai models use interference-type non-freewheeling engines. Should the timing belt break in these engines, the valves in the cylinder head will come in contact with the pistons, causing major engine damage. The recommended replacement interval for timing belts is 60,000 miles.
