Hyundai engines are interference engines so you will have valve damage. before you attempt to do the job get yourself a workshop manual as these engines do not have torque settings but use degrees on an angle setting for the head studs. The manual will explain the timing mark settings and all the details you will need.

Sounds like it has not been cared for. What else could have been let go? Oil changes etc. The problem with the fuel line is not a big deal but the RPM tachometer could be expensive.

any vehicle of that age will have power steering so a few basic checks to start with ,the power steeering is powered by a pump which is belt driven so check all the drive belts are in good condition/not loose etc ,next check the power steering fluid level, there will be a small resovoir ,usually opaque, with a black screw off top, with pipes leading back to the pump, there will be min/max mark on side of this so make sure the fluid is in that range other than that you will have to take to a repair shop as other causes require expertise

If the sensor did not fail,then a mechanical
problem inside the motor

If you fail to change your oil every 3 to 4,000
miles,the motor gets gunk & the oil passages
become blocked in the cam & actuators & you
have big & expensive problems

Happens as we speak (neglect & lack of knowledge)

If the timing belt jumps a tooth or two, that also will set
a MIL lamp & you have an out of parameter report back to
ecu (computer)

is it petrol? if so check your spark plugs, and coil pack or it could even be sh-t in the fuel filter. try them first

These are probably enough reasons to steer clear of it . If you could get a history of the vehicle would be a place to start to find if it has been submerged.

Hi Janie, Brake fluid does not leak from the tyres but instead it leaks from the rear brake cylinders onto the brake bondings, into the drums or discs and then drips onto the tyres. Your vehicle is a danger to you and all who share the road with you. Take it with all urgency to a workshop and have it sorted out very as soon as you read this. Regards John

This is a problem for the dealer if the vehicle is still under warranty (and it might be with Hyundai).

However, if the vehicle has been in an accident, the warranty may not apply. If that's the case, you should check with your insurance agent who will likely send an adjuster out to investigate and possibly recommend a body shop.

My Hyundai dealer was great as long as the warranty was in force but I had one nagging electrical problem they couldn't solve.

As soon as the warranty expired even though it had been an on-going problem, they wanted to make up all the money they had spent over the previous five years trying and failing to fix the problem so I got rid of the car. And, I didn't buy another Hyundai.

A jamming door can be as simple as a lack of lubrication or as complex as a bent frame. It's gonna take a hands on mechanic to determine exactly what it is and the dealer is the best place to start...especially if the warranty is still in force.

When I bought my Hyundai new, the warranty was transferable and if I had traded while the warranty was still in force, the warranty would have still been in effect for the new owner
