problem #1

May 082020

Sonata SE 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 178,200 miles

The timing chain tensioner is obviously shot, because the timing chain clatter at the exact spot on engine. It seems Hyundai doesn't seem to want to help with this. It's a bigger issue than they want to admit. I just got an estimate from 3 different garages and all are around $1600.00 to $2000.00. I've researched this way more than I liked to on YouTube, but it all points to the tensioner and is very well known part that is made terribly and Hyundai wont recall this part. I'll get this done and will never purchase another Hyundai. F'em, F'em.
