Having problems with your Hyundai Motor 2003 Sonata ?

Belts squeal every time I start my car. It's worse when there's moisture in the air. The car 2003 Sonata doesnt have an on/off switch for the air. I can turn it down but its always on. I've had the belts replaced and adjusted several times at auto repair chains and the dealer. The noise remains. In fact each time its replaced its stops then comes back louder than ever

I have a 2004 Cavalier, the timing chain broke, so I was told, and I had a mechanic repair the car. After replacing the timing belt and the tensioner and many other parts, the car is now running BUT when I drive it up a hill the car loses power and even stalls when I slow down. what could be causing the problem? and could the timing be set wrong?


... 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier

The car had ignition coils replaced as a part of Audi recall. Two days later the car started misfiring and the check engine light came on. The car has 92000 miles on it and v8 4.2 engine. The dealer said that they need to take engine out to diagnose the problem. They suspect that timing chain slipped or broke and that the engine may need to be replaced or rebuilt. Could the previous service repair have anything to do with the current problem?


Dont you love recalls they never seem to solve ****, and the problem with the timing chains is that it is really easy for the mechanic to cause unneeded damage to the engine. if the chain or belt snapped your in a world of hurt i would take it to ano ... 2004 Audi S4

I need a water pump in my 1995 maxima and it has a timing chain. The dealer tells me its less expensive to change out when the car has a timing chain rather than a timing belt. An independat mechanic tells me the opposite. Which is right and ballpark how much sould it cost me to replace the water pump?


Your engine has a timing belt not a chain and the water pump is run by the timing belt,and when the pump is changed the belt should be too,it should run you about $300 if the job is done right with the pump,belt,idlers and tensioner if needed,hope th ... 1995 Nissan Maxima

I just brought my 05 maxima (with 85,000 miles) into the dealer for an air conditioning fix. With the inspection, they noted that there was a sound at start up with the timing chain and tensioners. I was advised this problem will only get worse and the repair would cost between $2,000 and $2,600, depending on how many parts had to be replaced. When I research this issue, it appears that timing chain problems/tensioners are an issue with maximas. The tensioners are defective and it is a matter of


This is very difficult to weigh in on without actually hearing the sound. also, if your altima has the 3.5 l engine, it is the exact same engine as in the maxima. typically, if you have been changing your oil as you should (every 3000 miles) you shou ... 2005 Nissan Altima

On April-2010. I bought a pre-owned 2004 Chrysler pt cruiser car at 100K miles, auto Transmission for my daughter. After driving the car for a week, the car died at suddenly at a stop sign. Apparently the timing belt broke, so we towed the car to an auto repair shop and replaced the timing belt and the water pump. After replaced the timing belt and water pump, she drove the car for 2 days and found the steering gear/rack leaking oil, brought the car to a technician and changed the steering gear/


Well, if the timing belt broke, and was replaced that solved a regularly scheduled maintenance issue.\015\012\015\012The water pumps do go bad on cars over 80,000 mi. frequently.\015\012So that's normal.\015\012\015\012A ... Chrysler PT Cruiser

I have a 2002 L300 Saturn w/ a 3.0 L V6 engine. Had a major engine failure without warning going down the interstate. There was the sound of a vibration under the hood. The engine died within 30 sec to a minute of this sound. I coasted the car to the emergency lane. The car has 123,000 miles on it. The timing belt (chain) had never been replaced. The car ran good, so I didn't see the need to have that $750 to $900 job done as recommended by the Saturn dealer when my odometer turned 100,00

Xg350 2004 misses when engine switches from set warm up stage to computer maintenance, also between 40-50 mph. Fuel pump ok, all ignition parts replaced, timing belt new, air flow sensor cleaned. Could the air sensor be faulty given the symptoms? Any way to tell--a new one cost more than $200. Have already paid for advice here once and spent more than 500 dollars. Including Hyundai dealership--this is a good car that needs a repair at 122K. No one seems to know how to do it.

During the replacement the gear driving the timing belt came out. Since the timing belt has not been replaced since ownership I decided to replace it along with the water pump. After setting all the timing marks, everything was reassembled. The engine started on the first try, the fallowing day, car was taken


First of all you never spray a electrical component with water. Now there is no way to know what sensor shorted or whether or not it shorted out the computer also. What you need now is a data scanner in order to see if any codes were set and to ... 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse

With it shutting off when you put it in drive that sounds like the safety switch that keeps it from starting when its not in park or neutral. Sounds like the safety switch has a short or something making it shut the motor off. I've seen this happen b ... 2001 Ford Focus

If it's a DOHC engine, most likely it is, it's a timing chain. Trust me I have a saturn SW2 2000. If you don't have any problem with it, don't mess with the chain, I have 92000 miles on mine.\015\012\015\012Alex\015\012 ... 2000 Saturn SL

My timing belt keeps coming off, I have replaced the tentioner two time's and bought a new belt, after i get the belt on and start the car, the belt kicks off again. I tried bypassing the air conditioner with a smaller belt, Which was advised for me to do from a garage, but the tentioner just kicked it off. I can't get it to a garage because it won't stay running, and it cost's like 300.00 to have a tow truck move it for me! Do you have any idea why this might be happening? I need my car back A.

So every time I turn the air conditioner on my car squeals really loud. I just had my power stearing belt and pump replaced. I really don't know much at all about cars. But I was reading that it could be the fan belt, alternator belt, or the power stearing belt. That maybe one of these belts needs to be replaced. But I'm not even real sure how to to this.

So, I am having major issues with my 2001 VW beetle. Over the past 3 years, I have replaced the mass air sensor, coolent temp. sensor, knock sensor (twice within 3 years), timing belt, belt tensioner, roller, and 4 coils. I'm sure there are more parts, I just can't remember them. My car is acting up once again-- by the way, the second knock sensor and the 4 coils were replaced this past week.

I have a 2000 Plymouth breeze, 2.4 l dohc. The Pulley behind the alternator seems to be loose, and the belt has come off. Can you give me a diagram of what needs to be removed in order to replace it? the car seems to have two belts, one I know is for the cam and timing, the other I believe runs the accessories, both coming from the harmonic balancer.I have not started taking it apart yet I wanted to research photos, or how to, I have been repairing cars for a long time, but I am less knowledgeab

My car won't start. i brough t back to the dealer and they said it is the timing belt but they said they would prefer replacing a motor. Do you think I should have them replace the motor or should I just have the timing belt fixed?
