So, I am going to call some shops and get quotes to replace a timing belt on a 2007 Sonata GLS 4 cylinder.

I have read that, since I am replacing the timing belt, I should replace the Serpentine belt at the same time.

I was wondering if I should include anything else while I am at it. Are there any other obvious wear items where the parts are less than the cost of labor to hoist the engine?

I have read a lot of posts about timing belts on these boards, but haven't yet found one that answers this particular question.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I though that even the 4 cylinders had a timing chain? I'm sure someone else will chime in. Knowing if this is true, I'd still try and see how many shops would charge for a timing belt if you really had a timing chain.

Correct - the I4 has a timing chain, but as you noted, I'm sure many shops would be willing to give you a quote on doing the timing belt!

The S-belt is doable yourself if you're handy. If not, a shop shouldn't charge much to do it.

Even though I have a 2003 santa fe with 83000 miles, I just changed out the timing and serpentine belt for the first time. I would think you could go a little longer on the serpentime belt if you wanted to.

You DO NOT have a belt. It's a chain. Whoever told you otherwise is trying to rip you off.

Thanks for the answers. This forum is great. Definitely worth the cost of admission.

So, no timing belt, no timing belt change.

When are you going back to these shops for a timing belt? Bring your video camera. Post it on YouTube or call the local news to pick up the story. More than likely they may try to sell you a hyper flux trans modulator because yours is showing signs of wear. Who was trying to rip you off? The Hyundai dealer? Or shop? Jiffy Lube?

CAN timing chains break? Sure anything can break given enough time and wear and tear.

WILL the timing chain break? Probably not for a very long time unless there is a defect with the chain itself or the chain tensioner.

That's why chains are better than belts. Chains can last hundred's of thousands of miles, whereas belts typically need to be replaced every 60K miles or so.
