This is a 2000 Hyundai Elantra, 2.0L DOHC. Says DOHC on plastic engine cover, and does have two camshafts over the valves. The 8th digit on the VIN # is F. Not sure about the engine code you listed? I am pretty sure this is the original engine. I have an online hyundai repair manual that confirms this an an engine offered for this 2000 hyundai elantra.. Anyways after further inspection of the valve clearances, I found a few intake and exhaust valves that had a real low clearance(less than.005), and others look normal with measurements around.020. Will drop the head off at a machine shop and have it inspected, and see what they advise. After the timing belt breaking and seeing valve clearances out of spec, I was sure I would find bent valves not seating fully. Do you think I was just lucky that no valves were bent or pistons damaged on an interference engine? I will post results after having the head inspected by a machine shop. I am tempted to put the head back on, but want to have it looked at first. I will post results, maybee this will help someone down the road.
