Issue with timing marks lining up after replacement of belt

Customer Question

issue with timing marks lining up after replacement of belt
Submitted: 1 year ago.
Category: Hyundai
Expert:  350matt replied 1 year ago.


as long as the crank pulley marks and cam marks and the balance shaft marks all match up as they should then thats all you have to worry about as the oil pump is not timing critical

this datasheet should help

I have looked at answer and continued my repair. But vehicle will not start. I believe I need to tear down and recheck marks and compression.
Expert:  350matt replied 1 year ago.


if the compression test shows up as you have 2 low cylinders then yes I'd agree that the cam timing may still be out

so providing the engine turns freely then its well worth checking all cylinders are within 10-15 psi of each other
