Asked by Carlos4NYC Jun 21, 2019 at 12:57 AM about the 2007 Hyundai Accent GS 2-Door Hatchback FWD

Question type: Car Customization

Just wondering if in any part of the USA can I buy a chain timing engine that fits
my Hyundai Accent Hatchback 2007?

3 Answers


Timing chains are located where they are lubricated in motor oil. Timing belts are not. So putting a chain in the belt's location will not work. Not a bad idea, but no.

Thank you. So, basically there is not a single chain timing engine does fit my Hyundai Accent 2007 Hatchback?

That's correct. Your car has a belt. You can not use a chain as a replacement. They don't make one. It would not work. Get your belt replaced at 100K miles or risk engine damage when it breaks.
