Old 2.7L Timing Belt Replacement 02-21-2010 , 07:01 PM

If you at all are unsure of this replacement and uneasy of doing this replacement yourself (could cause serious car problems), please talk to Derek (only1db) to set up an appointment to change it out for you! He's a certified Hyundai technician and has done the replacement multiple times.

REMOVAL

Engine removal is not required for this procedure.
1. Remove the engine cover.
2. Remove RH front wheel.
3. Remove 2bolts(B) and RH side cover(A).

4. Turn the crankshaft pulley, and align its groove with timing mark Tof the timing belt cover.

NOTE: ALWAYS TURN CRANKSHAFT CLOCKWISE!
5. Remove drive belt(A) and belt tensioner(B).

6. Remove the engine mount bracket. (Set the jack to the engine oil pan)

NOTE: Place wooden block between the jack and engine oil pan.
(Remove the 2bolts, 2nuts and engine mount bracket(A).)

7. Remove the power steering pump. (See ST group - power steering pump)
8. Remove the 7bolts(B) and timing belt upper cover(A).

9. Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt and crankshaft pulley(A).

10. Remove the drive belt idler pulley(A).

11. Remove the 4bolts(B) and timing belt lower cover(A).

12. Remove the engine support bracket(A).

13. Check that timing marks of the camshaft timing pulleys and cylinder head covers are aligned. If not, turn the crankshaft 1revolution(360).
14. Remove timing belt tensioner. Alternately loosen the 2bolts, and remove the tensioner(A).

15. Remove the timing belt(A).

NOTE: If the timing belt is reused, make an arrow indicating the turning direction to make sure that the belt is reinstalled in the same direction as before.
16. Remove the tensioner pulley(A) and timing belt idler pulley(B).

17. Remove the crankshaft sprocket.
18. Remove camshaft sprockets. Hold the hexagonal head wrench portion of the camshaft with a wrench and remove the bolt and camshaft sprocket.

INSTALLATION

1. Install the crankshaft sprocket. Align the pulley set key with the key groove the crankshaft sprocket and slide on the crankshaft sprocket.
2. Install the camshaft sprockets and tighten the bolts to the specified torque. (a. Temporarily install the camshaft sprocket bolts.) (b. Hold the hexagonal head wrench portion of the camshaft with a wrench, and tighten the camshaft sprocket bolts.)
TORQUE: Tightening torque - Camshaft sprocket bolt 90 ~ 110Nm (900 ~ 1100kgf.cm, 65 ~ 80lbf.ft)
3. Install the idler pulley(B) and the tensioner pulley(A).
TORQUE: Tightening torque - Idler pulley bolt 50 ~ 60Nm (500 ~ 600kgf.cm, 36 ~ 43lbf.ft) & Tensioner arm fixed bolt 35 ~ 55Nm (350 ~ 550kgf.cm, 25 ~ 40lbf.ft)
NOTE: Insert and install the idler pulley to the roll pin that is pressed in the water pump boss.

4. Align the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket and crankshaft sprocket with the No.1 piston placed at top dead center and its compression stroke.

5. Set timing belt tensioner. (a. Using a press, slowly press in the push rod.) (b. Align the holes of the push rod and housing pass a set pin through the holes to keep the setting position of the push rod.) (c. Release the press.)
6. Install the timing belt tensioner. (a. Temporarily install the tensioner with the 2bolts.) (b. Alternately tighten the 2bolts.)
TORQUE: Tightening torque - 20 ~ 27Nm (200 ~ 270kgf.cm, 14 ~ 20lbf.ft)

7. Install the timing belt. (a. Remove any oil or water on the sprockets, and keep them clean.) (b. Install the tming belt in this order. Crankshaft sprocket(A) → Idler pulley(B) → Camshaft sprocket LH side(C) → Water pump pulley(D) → Camshaft sprocket RH side(E) → Tensioner pulley(F).)

8. Remove the set pin(A) from the tensioner.

9. Timing belt tensioner checking. (a. Rotate the crankshaft 2turns clockwise and measure the projected length of the auto tensioner at TDC(#1 compression stroke) after 5 minutes.) (b. The projected length should be 7 ~ 9mm (0.27 ~ 0.31in.))

10. Install the engine support bracket(A).
TORQUE: Tightening torque - B : 60 ~ 70Nm (600 ~ 700kgf.cm, 43 ~ 51lbf.ft)
C : 15 ~ 22Nm (150 ~ 220kgf.cm, 11 ~ 16lbf.ft)

11. Install the timing belt lower cover(A) with 4bolts(B).
TORQUE: Tightening torque - Timing belt cover bolt 10 ~ 12Nm (100 ~120kgf.cm, 7 ~ 9lbf.ft)

12. Install the drive belt idler pulley(A).
TORQUE: Tightening torque - Idler pulley bolt 35 ~ 55Nm (350 ~ 550kgf.cm, 25 ~ 40lgf.ft)

13. Install the crankshaft pulley(A). Make sure that crankshaft sprocket pin fits the small hole in the pulley.
TORQUE: Tightening torque - Crankshaft pulley bolt 180 ~ 190Nm (1800 ~ 1900kgf.cm, 130 ~ 138lbf.ft)

14. Install the timing belt upper cover(A) with 7bolts(B).

INSPECTION

SPOCKETS, TENSIONER, IDLER
1. Check the camshaft sproket, crankshaft sprocket, tensioner pulley, and idler pulley for abnormal wear, cracks, or damage. Replace as necessary.
2. Inspect the tensioner pulley and the idler pulley for easy and smooth rotation and check for play or noise. Replace as necessary.

3. Replace the pulley if there is a grease leak from its bearing.

TIMING BELT
1. Check the belt for oil or dust deposits. Replace, if necessary. Small deposits should be wiped away with a dry cloth or paper. Do not clean with solvent.
2. When the engine is overhauled or belt tension adjusted, check the belt carefully. If any of the following flaws are evident, replace the belt.
NOTE: 1. Do not bend, twist or turn the timing belt inside out. 2. Do not allow the timing belt to come into contact with oil, water and steam.

the tensioner is just held on by 2 10mm bolts. Very easy to pull away from the block.

If you specifically look up just the part number of the belt on amazon.com it's like half the price of local auto part stores ...

Great DIY, I'll be needing to do this soon so hopefully I can use this DIY rather than taking it to a shop. Do you know where the best place to but a timing belt kit at? I was looking at the one on SFR but didn't know if you can get the same for better price...

You can get the timing belt from the dealership or even ebay.

We 4banger guys put a breaker bar on it, wedge the bar against the frame, pull the plug wires, and then crank the engine - just barely.

It's like magic. I thought for sure stuff would explode, but it worked perfectly.

So, in changing the timing belt from my stock engine to the new one, I have the same question posted above, why remove the cam sprockets? It seems it would be harder, the things flopped on me twice as it is I had to get a breaker bar on the cam sprocket bolt just to hold them in place while I lined up everything else.

For quickest response regarding ZMR Mods please email me at

My timing belt hasn't been replaced since it rolled off the lot. It's now at 137,000+ miles. Is it a miracle that something hasn't broken down yet?

Getting it replaced early next month though.

i wouldnt call it a miracle....but that is pretty crazy. a lot of it depends how hard you are on your car. if you beat on it everyday the timing belt goes through a lot of time being stressed....if you just drive the car and are easy on it the belt can last way over 60K. I'm at 62K right now on original belt. but im gonna change it this summer. just to be safe

My husband pushed it pretty hard when he first got it but the past five years or so we've been really easy on it. Just lots of miles, mostly on cruise. So that's probably why it's lasted.
