  1. Maintenance & Care
    Hello all, I just have a quick question about adjusting the timing belt. I recently replaced all the belts on my 2003 GLS. I took off my upper timing belt cover last weekend to check on the timing belt tension, and I noticed there is a lot of slack on the right side of the belt. The car is...
  2. Maintenance & Care
    Hello all, I'm soon going to change my timing and accessory belts along with my water pump. My 2003 Elantra GLS has 165,000 miles on it I bought it with 109k on it. The dealer said they changed the belts, so on their word its almost to 60k and 4 years on the belts. The reason I ask about the...
  3. Maintenance & Care
    Hello everyone, my 2003 Elantra GLS just hit 160k miles I've had since 110k. I've been trying to do more of my own maintenance with this car, so I attempted to replace the PCV valve today with no success. I've read previous forum post about the brass fitting coming out, and sure enough mine did...

    Hey guys! I'm Ahmed. I got my 03 Elantra GT (4dr) back in July of 2010. I really love my car and I want to baby it! But unfortunately, I dragged my feet about getting anything done on it (washing/waxing, oil, etc) while it was warm out, so now I have to work in the cold :/ Anyway, I was...
  5. Suspension/Brakes/Drivetrain
    I'm planning on embarking on a 1200 mile road trip, so I took my car in for new tires. Firstly, this car EATS through tires. I had the stock tires replaced at about 25k, and I'm just now at 56k and replacing again. I'm heading from Florida to Kalamazoo, MI though and need my car in tip top shape...

    Hi there, question about scheduled maintenance: Excuse my lack of knowledge, but I have an 2003 4-door hatchback GT with 2.0 SULEV... so my car is about 7 years old with almost 50,000 miles. I was looking over my maintenace records and realized that I have been following the schedule...
  7. Maintenance & Care
    Hey guys I'm new to Elantraxd and had a few questions about my 2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS. I am trying to learn more about maintenance and upkeep to avoid dealer costs. I've had it a couple years and had the brakes replaced a year or so back. For about a week I have been experiencing squealing...
  8. Maintenance & Care
    About 2 years ago when I had my 30,000 mile service, the shop I took it to told me I needed (as in the belts were cracking) to change out the 3 accessory belts. Well I'm at 54,000 miles now and having no issues so I know that was a crock of ****. But anyway - seeing that I'm approaching 60k is...
  9. Maintenance & Care
    Hi EXD fans. I just did today my PCV valve. I am not sure how many miles it had before it was replaced, but I did mine with around 40,000 miles. The old one still rattled but not as much as the new one. When replacing I did noticed that the vacuum hose was still the OEM so when i removed it...
