That took you long enough

Is there a timing kit change on the cards now that 1L is up?

Not for now, maybe around 1,20,000 kms mark.

Pretty costly affair and lot of parts need changing which could require a 2 days of downtime of the car at my FNG.

Unless the timing chain is making abnormal noises, do not bother changing it. Pretty costly affair. Also, last time I checked with a senior Hyundai technician, he says the chain easily lasts 2.5 Lakh kms with correct oil changes. Why fix if it ain't broken?

As far as timing chain goes, this is the most critical component of an engine as far routine maintenance goes. I would suggest & I personally go with what the user manual says.

User manual of course recommends that time period as part of preventive maintenance, but I would rather change timing kit than look at half engine rebuild.

Mahindra recommends at 60K, Toyota at 150K and almost all of them somewhere between these kilometers, so I will take the friendly senior Hyundai technician advise with a pinch of salt. It is entirely unto you though, as to whom do you choose to believe, the Hyundai's user manual, available in black and white or something which a technician says w/o any data / evidence.

Well, Hyundai does not recommend changing the timing chain at all. It is not listed in the user manual under periodic maintenance schedule. It is supposed to last time life of the engine. The SA whom I know at HASS says it is very rare for a timing chain to go bad unless the engine is abused.

I have no idea about this and if Hyundai does not specifically say so in their service manual, then I jumped the gun, sorry .

Hyundai has a belt or a chain?

But please clarify here,

At one end, you say, it lasts life time and at one end, it is said by SA that it lasts 2.5L kms.

Could you be more specific?

Anurag & others - Is it different for older 1.6's and now, the newer 1.5's?

Thanks.

The U2 CRDi series of engine from Hyundai have a timing chain.

Yes, I say it should last the life of the engine since it is not mentioned in the user manual to be replaced periodically . However, under our driving conditions, based on the experience of the senior technician who has worked on these cars for the past 10+ years, it will last 2.5L kms easily with regular oil changes. It is mostly at or around the 2.5L mark will the timing chain start making noise which is the only indication on these engines that it needs replacement. The key here is "regular oil changes"

I agree with this logic but it is a critical component and if fails on the go, I'll need to pick an engine from the scrap market.

As for the current condition, there is no 'timing chain' noise from the engine hence pulling it longer. Since I have blocked the EGR valve in the initial days of ownership, the internals and the oil condition is good even after 10,000-12,000 kms of usage. Keeping this part in mind I guess I can pull it till 1,50,000 kms minimum.

Neither the owner's manual nor the service manual specifies anything regarding change interval for the timing chain and its components.

I think it is similar in both the 1.6L U2 and 1.5L U2.
