Contacted the deales yesterday to enquire about timing belt replacement as the Getz crtd has only done 28000 miles in 4 years.

And the price is £390!

After getting up of the floor I think I will be looking around a bit more, anyone else had prices this high or above.

Having looked on the Hyundai web site to find out about the crtd engine I have discovered that the crtd does not have a timing belt.

The timing is done by chain.

Which makes me ask why did the dealer quote me £390 for a belt that the car does not need.

Another reason to check things out before you leap in the deep end and get taken for an expensive ride!

Have not checked the maintenance manual yet, but timing chains do need replacement too. Not as often as timing belts, but they do wear and become slugish with time. Check again with your dealer. I presume the prices you got are for the timing chain and related parts/labor. Many times, mechanics will answer your request for timing "belt", even knowing you are both talking about "chain", since they work and do the same.

Why Replace Your Timing Chain?

Over time, wear on internal working parts of your engine will spell the need for replacement. One of the internal working parts that wear is the timing chain and timing sprockets. The timing chain and sprockets are the connecting line between the crankshaft and the camshaft. As the crankshaft turns, via the timing chain, it drives the camshaft that operates the engine's valves via the lifters, push rods and rocker arm assemblies The timing of the valves opening and closing at precise intervals is crucial for proper engine operation. As the timing chain and sprockets wear, this precise timing of the valves gradually changes, eventually to a point where replacement is necessary.

Telltale signs of worn out timing chains are:

•Rough idle.
•Sluggish performance and poor economy.
•Sudden engine performance change including the inability to start the engine.
•Intermittent backfire through the intake manifold.
•Inconsistent ignition timing or a clattering noise coming from the front of the engine.

I will look for my Hyundai maintenance manuals and confirm you how often the timing chain is recommended to be replaced.

Just checked Hyundai maintenace manuals for the Getz

Indeed, Hyundai recommends replacing the timing chain (and related parts) of the 1.5 CRDI engine, at 120,000 kms. Shorten that to 90,0000 if you consider you are mostly using vehicle under severe conditions. (Fast driving, hot and humid weather, dusty conditions, very short trips, trailer towing).

Look's like I can put my mind to rest for about 50,000 miles then!!

Thanks
