Timing chain is making annoying noice ..


Asked by Nov 17, 2015 at 01:23 PM about the 2008 Hyundai Accent GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Hyundai accent is making very annoying
noice and I think it's the timing chain. It's
been making noice for a while now but just
a week earlier my car is not running like its
used to I don't think it's turbo's are working
anymore. I am really scared I think it's going
to cost me quite a few bucks. ANY HELP!!

How many miles on the car? Timing chain repairs are not cheap. It might be the tensioner but if your car has high miles it might need a new timing chain, tensioner and guides. The turbo issue would be unrelated and if it is no longer working that means the bearings have seized up and you need a new turbo charger. Always let the car idle a couple of minutes before shutting the engine off to cool the turbo down. Using a good synthetic oil and changing it every 3,000 miles is a good idea with a turbo car.


Timing chain problem on a 2008? Really? I would definitely think of getting rid of this car? That's a pretty young car for that to be happening!


Actually, this is a "pretty good car", see attached. I would definitely recommend a second opinion from a professional.
