Timing Belt Replacement

 

What is a timing belt? The timing belt synchronizes the interaction between major engine components to ensure everything is ”timed” just perfect. How long do timing belts last? Over time and kilometers were driven, timing belts become worn and cracked leading to a possible timing belt failure resulting in a vehicle breakdown and engine damage.

How is this corrected? Hyundai Canada recommends a timing belt replacement at 168,000 kilometers or 7 years (whichever occurs first). A Timing Belt Replacement involves removing the worn timing belt and replacing it with a brand new, Genuine Hyundai Timing Belt.

Is it time to schedule a Timing Belt Replacement? If your Hyundai is equipped with a timing belt and has been on the road for over 168,000 kilometers or 7 years, it’s time for a timing belt replacement. Having this service performed by a Hyundai Certified Technican will ensure long engine life, lower repair bills, and safe, worry-free driving for years to come.
