Car is having other issues (water gush sound, idling strangely/lurching in low gears) but of course they didn't happen for the shop. Due for 60K tune up, which Kia recommends timing belt replacement. So, ok I guess. Wish I had some car expert friends though!

Timing belt and water pump and labor max $450..rnMuch better if you buy good the parts your self and have a trusted mechanic put it in... Seriously anyone paying $700- and up is a total rip off.. You can find out your self by calling parts stores and quoting the parts and the labor before someone quotes that rip off price!!

I had purchased this car in 08 from a rental car dealership, it had 45341 miles. At the time of repair the miles were 110395, I had no idea of all this work needed to be done on a vehicle of any kind. I started not to do it but it is my only private trans. Just thank God that I had the money or I will have no ride.:)

2007 Hyundai Elantra timing belt replacement
Amount: $130.00
Posted by: swaveyman in Worthington, PA.Posted: May 31st, 2011 07:05AM
Car Make: 2007 HyundaiCar Model: Elantra SE
Hours of Labor: 4Shop:
I purchased my Elantra new in 2007. When I hit 105,000 miles two weeks ago I decided to replace
the timing belt. I purchased a kit that included a belt, idler and tensioner. I also purchased a new water pump and new belts for the AC and alternator/water pump. The old timing belt did not look too bad but the tensioner pulley had a groove warn in it. No special tools require but you need a impact hammer to remove the crank pulley bolt. It has right hand threads. I think the Hyundai engineers did a good job when they designed the engine and engine compartment.
When it hits 210,000 miles I will do it again..
