Hyundai Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Where do you think this knocking noise is, the engine, front or rear suspension?
Do you need any further help?
Generally a dull deep sound from the middle to bottom of the engine would be terminal.
I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.
If you believe the noise is from the timing belt area, then is it fixable, but please don't drive too much until you have the car inspected.
Could be a $500 job, but if the belt breaks or an idler or waterpump or tensioner fails, then it could be $3000 or more.
Hope this helps.
I recommend you get a mechanic to listen to the engine.
I recommend a mechanic does the job for you, if you aren't up for this type of work.
Are you able to host a video of the noise on youtube etc?
And post a link to it here?
Have you done a timing belt on this car before?
If it sounds like a SERIOUS knock, then it may be deeper within the engine.
I would have it assessed quickly by a local workshop.
If that is your noise, in that video it is the A/C compressor, front bearing failure.
It will cost you about $800 for a new compressor, but glad the noise is not in the engine.
Now you need to find a compressor, and get the job done, preferably by an A/C tech.
Hope you get it sorted.
Have a good day.
