Hi.. Have a question.
I have replaced the Timing belts on my Sonata 2000 2.4lts engine.I have stricly followed the Belts installing information.But when i got to the timing marks.It kind of confussesd me a bit.As of the Oil Pump Timing.It stated that there is a plug that has to be removed,In order to be able to push a screw driver in.But icannot take the plug out as it is badly corroded.I just wanted to know .Why does the oil pump needs to be timed.I never saw this before on any other engine.Please a reply would helpwith any information.Thank You

    You could try posting in the Technical Questions discussion. It's not vehicle specific, but someone there might be able to give you some ideas.

    the balance shaft has one setting/mark but the oil pump which is to the right of thecrank when looking at the eng, it has three positions when u line it up to the mark it will return down ,turn it then set it will pull up,turn and set again and when it is released it should return to the mark even if it is moved up or downand released,and when you are done with the belt spin the motor and for every 3 complete cycles the balace should line up that is 6 crank revolutions or 3 cam revolutions
