Interference engine


Asked by Mar 11, 2017 at 06:30 PM about the 2004 Hyundai Tiburon GT V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Blew a timing belt on my 2004 2.7 v6 Hyundai
Tiburon GT. Car coasted about 40ft after engine
died. Will I need a new engine or just need to
replace my timing belt??

3 Answers


Its my understanding Simi interference which means yes if the timing belt breaks the valves in the heads will bend and motor is pretty much toast. At least for the top end, the bottom end may have survived.

Wonderful... Sooo where's the first place to start with this bipolar car of mine??


The top end has to come off and inspected/repaired/replaced as needed and pistons need to be inspected for damage, if they are fine top end reinstalled after its had its repairs with the new timing belt and tensioners if needed.
