\015 I REPLACED THE TIMING BELT & HYDRAULIC AJUSTER IN MY 1998 SONATA NOW THERE IS A LOUD HOWLING NOISE THE BELTS ARE MAKING NOISE & IT DOES NOT IDLE COULD U TELL ME HOW TO FIX PLEASE\015
Your timing marks must be off for the car not to idle. the timing belt is too tight, that is where the noise is coming from. rule of thumb is you should be able to twist the timing belt to just under 90 degrees on the longest section after the tensioner has tensioned and nut on pully it tightened. tensioners usually tension more than they need to.
