i have a 2005 1.6 Getz, it has just passed 90000km. I realise the timing/driving belt needs replacing, but am not is a position to afford it yet. How long can I realistically delay before I have to change the belt??? I don't gunn the engine and drive quite sensibly, and only for short distances. Any help / information would really be appreciated

How long can you delay replacing the timing belt? I guess that question can be answered only with a crystal ball, a tarot deck of cards and your horoscope.

There have been cases of broken timing belts as short as 50,000 kms or engines with half a million kms and still running with the original belt. The bad thing here is that like brain aneurism, there are no symptoms to look for before the disaster strikes.

Changing the belt is not that difficult (not that you can doit in your home garage). Any good shop can do it. One way to minimize cost is to go get some parts now, then the rest of the parts next month. Shop around for the labor and plan it do be done in the next 3 to 4 months. That way your costs will be diluted in time.

In the meantime, drive gently and stop your engine at the slightest symptom of mechanical failure.

acording to hyundai service schedules the timing belt should be changed every 60,000 miles (96,000 k/m) or five years whichever comes first, leaving it longer than this is like playing russian roulette with your engine. if the belt was to break it will make a very large dent in your finances

Timing belt is a crucial part of the car its failure may cost you overhauling the engine please check out the play of timing belt or refer users manual to check with the timing bel or else get somebuddy who have getz with recent history of timing belt chenge and just use your fingure to check the play (Elasticity of belt).. and thempare with your one.... whenever you change your timing belt check out howm much tooth the belt have and accordingly buy new one.. also regualarly cheeck for severe abrasion or cracks on the belts...

I have the same concern. I have a Getz 2005 model and only has 44KM. It will turn 7 years this july.

I have asked several people their point of view or experience when it comes to changing timing belts and they say 'they usually consider the mileage'.

Now based on your answers, I am starting to doubt again.

Do you have steps or illustrations how to check if the Timing is still in good shape?

Thanks in advance.

Cost of timing belt is by far smaller than the cost of repairing the engine.

at the 90,000 km service in australia,
its includes
oil and filter
brake fluid and clutch fluid *if manual*
transmission fluid *if auto
coolant change
air filter
spark plugs
timing belt


if your finances are a little tight, you can always break this service up,
and start with the most important first,
timing belt,

then in a month or twos time do some of the rest

Unhappy Do I need to replace my water pump at the same time?

I have booked in my 90,000 timing belt to be replaced on Monday... But when I booked, the mechanic said that I 'may as well replace the water pump while I'm there, to save having to pay for the labor if it blows up in a few months time'... Is the water pump really that hard to replace in a 2005 Hyundai Getz? Is it recommended I do this at the same time as my timing belt?

I live in Darwin, Australia which has wet, humid monsoonal and hot, dry seasons - not winter, summer spring etc... Does this make my water pump more prone to failing? Or am I just being conned?
