2009 Hyundai Sonata Q&A
2009 Hyundai Sonata Question: When should we change timing chain or Sonata has a timing chain?
TELL THE DEALER THEY ARE FULL OF IT UNLESS YOU HEAR CHAIN IS LOOSE AND MAKING NOISE. THAT SHOULD BE COVERED UNDER YOUR 10YR 100K MILE WARRANTY IF THERE IS AN ISSUE - globalhelper
The reason I bought my Sonata is because it has a timing CHAIN and not a timing BELT. After reading several articles and also having the service department tell me that timing chains almost never have to be replaced (15 years of working in the service dept he had never replaced one); however, the timing chain tensioner will eventually need to be replaced. - gemini345
