  1. V6 - Naturally Aspirated
    I have replaced the power steering pump and harmonic balancer in trying to track down a cold start squeaking to no avail. The source definitely sounds like it is coming from the serpentine belt, and higher up, which is what led me to believe it was the power steering pump at first. While...

    Hello all, I’m looking for opinions on whether or not I should replace my timing belt. I pulled a side cover back and got some images, all I see is some small cracks all the way around the belt. The car has about 113,000 miles on it and I doubt the belt was ever replaced. Below is a picture, any...
  3. V6 - Naturally Aspirated
    I understand that this topic has been beaten to death, but all the search results I have found have varied quite a bit. I bought the gates kit for $150, and was going around getting quotes from mechanics. After some haggling, two reputable/good mechanics quoted me $380 and $400, for labor alone...

    I literally just got my 2.7l 2008 Tibby, this Saturday. It has had 2 owners and only 59K miles on it. I got it for $5500. There needs to be some maintenance, its about 1k miles over due for oil change, and I need to begin my 60k stuff. So I'm shopping for timing belt and water pump kits, there...

    First, I would like to thank all members for the past posts on this board. They have helped greatly in fixing a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon 2.7L V6 for my son to drive. Currently, I am replacing the timing belt for the first time and need help. 1. With old timing belt on, I rotated crankshaft and...
  6. V6 - Forced Induction
    Hi everyone. I've recently started noticing a squeaking sound from my engine bay. After checking the forum it seems like the most likely culprit is either the serpentine belt or surrounding pulleys/bearings. However, it seems like another explanation is that the timing belt might be making the...

    Hey guys, I was wondering where to find a timing belt kit for a 2007 Tiburon 2.0. I need to get it done soon and was looking in the forums, but unfortunately most of the links to timing belt kits have been deleted. I was looking at a Gates kit on amazon, but I am not sure if it is the right kit/...

    At what mileage point do I need a new timing belt? My '08 Tiburon with manual transmission has about 96,000 miles on it. If the timing belt breaks, will it damage the engine? Are the parts & labor for a new timing belt about $650? Thanks in advance for all your help.

    Been creeping the forums for a while.. first time posting. I have an 08 v6 that I've starting doing a timing belt change on. When I have all the marks aligned, and put tension on the belt, the left cam will move ccw to where it's about a tooth off from the mark. This is very frustrating. I've...

    Thanks for all the great information shared on this forum! My old beater Elantra finally had to be retired a few months ago. Very reliable, but the body was too rusted to pass inspection this year. I wanted another Hyundai, but wanted something with a bit more pizzazz. I started researching the...

I need to be able to do it over the course of a weekend...

    Greeting forum. I need a lil' help here. It's a bit hard to source for spare parts for my '04 Tib in Malaysia. The car was not even sold locally by Hyundai. :crying: Luckily I managed to buy mine thru some friends from Singapore. :wink2: This meaning that parts for the Tib is scarce and new...

    I have a 2007 Tib, 2.7 GT... she quit on me today. Tow truck driver said it sounded to him like the timing belt, because she tries to turn over, but doesn't. He also said he thought she had a non-interference motor, but everything I have looked at says all Hyundai's pretty much have interference...

    After months of dealing the annoying squeaking of my god-knows-how-old timing belt, I finally got around to ordering a new one. I cross referenced from several sites and brands to make sure I was ordering the correct one for my SE V6. Ended up buying a Dayco 95315. The day it came I compared it...

    Long story short, looking at getting a 2006 GT V6 SE Tiburon. In years past I owned a 2003 i4 Tibby with 94k on the clock. I'm having a hard time convincing my parents that 76,000 miles is practically brand new. Averaging the miles per year (8 years divided by 76,000 miles) yields an average of...
