2001 Hyundai Santa Fe Q&A
2001 Hyundai Santa Fe Question: I had my timing belt replaced and ever since doing that it making a noise.

Remove the fan belts from the front of the engine and run the engine see if the noise is still there if it is then you have eliminated the noise from being anything driven by the engine. They may have to remove the timing cover or crank pulley to see what is going on. If it making a noise within the timing cover then there will be a mark on something that is rubbing.
