When should the timing belt be changed on a 2002 Hyundai Elantra?

Most Hyundais recommend changing the timing belt every 60,000 miles. However, I am at 77k and haven't changed it yet. I need to change it ASAP.

Answer

I have a 2001 Hyundai elantra. and You are supposed to change it at 60K miles but! i am at 66,000-ish! and I am now noticing a slight movement prob every once in a while! YEA GET THAT STUFF DONE! Have you ever noticed when one prob goes wrong with the car ALL GOES AT ONCE!!!

Answer

Got a 2000 Accent that went 73K but then the belt went too. Had to get some bent valves repaired....change the belt. i suggest chaging rubber timing belts at 50,000 i have seen alot of bent valves and cracked heads and pistons from neglecting this a $200 job can easily turn into $1000
