Hello everyone

Posted ages ago about my NF making a rough noise pretty much all the time, sounds like the chains are loose when letting go of the accelerator peddle, like there's some slack.

However there are no error codes. Is this normal? If there was a problem with the tensioner or chains would it throw a code?

Anyway, I'm thinking they should probably be replaced. How much is the full kit and where can I buy it from? I'm in Australia, wish I bought these earlier when the exchange rate was better :(

How much roughly would install be? Anyone in Australia know a good place to get this done?

Keen to hear.

Kind Regards

Elyse

Dunno 'bout mechanics or costs in AU, but I'm sure a bad timing chain or tensioner wouldn't throw an error code.

To clear this up, are these the parts for a full timing chain replacement or just tensioner? Seems really cheap, around $130... just need to add labour to that.

Any ideas?

Thanks so much for everyones help.

The parts listed in the TSB are for the chain tensioner replacement only.

What is the powertrain warranty in Australia??

I am a hyundai mechanic for a local dealership in australia, the timing chain's on the 3.3L NF sonata are not the easiest to do as space is very limited, between the engine and strut tower/chassis rail, this will increase the labor times. The warranty times are what is claimable for the dealership from the manufacturer, sometimes we can carry out the job quicker then the times, sometimes it takes alot longer.

And to answer timk22's question, powertrain warranty in australia is generally 5 years unlimited km's.

TSB only covers Tensioner replace.. add price for (2) chains and added labor accordingly

We nominally charge around 11 hr shop labor for the tensioner replacement as customer pay(have to double check our price guide Monday), possibly 13-14 hr for chains/tensioner/re-seal job

Where can I find the part numbers for the chains??

So possibly looking at about $1300+ , then another $200 or so for parts. Might as well just sell this heap of junk and get a decent car.
