If you experience excessive engine noise on startup (after the engine has been turned off for several hours) that lasts for more than five or six seconds, turn off the engine and check that the engine oil level is correct. If the oil level is correct, the noise may be caused by the timing chain tensioner. Hyundai has an improved tensioner to correct this problem.

    At the shop now. Fucillo Hyundai said it will cost us $1500.00 to fix. We went in to get oxygen sensor replaced and for an inspection. Looks like we aren't gonna pass the inspection. We hope they can fix it enough to let us save up for the timing chain. Wow! Unbelievable! :-(
