The harmonic balancer pulley fell off a few days ago, so we had the dealer replace it ($370.00). Immediately after this, the engine began making loud noises on start-up for a couple of seconds. Now the dealer thinks we need a new cam chain tensioner (minimum $1300.00). Anyone have info?
Is there a TSB or recall for Hyundai Sonata cam chain tensioners? on 2006 Hyundai Sonata
