Timing Belt repair

Asked by Nov 10, 2014 at 11:03 AM about the 2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am taking my car into the shop here shortly. I need to get winter tires, an oil change, and both serpentine belts done. (Between the two they run the water pump, the AC/HEATER, Power Steering, and the alternator)
I know I need to get my Timing belt done because I am at 127,800 with no record of it being changed, but my question is with my 06 hyundai elantra (nothing fancy) already in for an oil change and getting the other belts replaced, would I save any time/Labor Time $$$ doing the timing belt than and there.
I also need to know what the going rate is to get the timing belt replaced. I thought I heard is was around 150 but than I read things like with fair prices (75-95 bucks AN HOUR) it was going to be right around 200-300 dollars

Thanks so much and I hope to hear from you soon.

Ps I believe my engine size is 2.0 or 2.1 L

It's a 2.0L All that was offered in the Elantra 2006. Several estimating sites all agree about $300 to $400 to replace timing belt ..but it may not run you that much since they are already in there, part of labor may be less

Thank you, Mr. Nut for already determining that car HAS a timing belt- so I don't sound stupid when I address this: get the belt done NOW- it is way overdue- and will save you money because the drive belts already have to come off- now, if Ford Nut can tell us if that car will bend valves-

Yes, it's an interference engine. Matter of fact Hyundai does not build a non-interference engine for any of their cars

Uhh....water pump belt?


1 ac 1 power steering 1 alternator. Ac and alternator run off a dual pulley. I couldn't get to my timing belt. I'm on the original belt at 125k km and it's a 2015
