Recently had my car serviced,which included the replacement of the timing belt! A full timing kit and belt were used!! My car is a 1998 Hyundai coupe FX 1.6L petrol,with just on 51000miles on said engine!! The trouble is that since the service ive noticed a low rattly,clacky noise under the timing belt cover!! Ive also noticed a definite vibration in the engine at certain engine revs,usually just above idle,or around 2000 revs!! The vibration is definitely in the engine as ive checked it several times!! Ive taken the car back to the garage,they took out the belt and kit,and reinstalled it to be sure it was installed properly the first time! They say it was,however after they did it a second time,the noise was not as bad,but its still there,as is the vibration!! Trouble is neither the noise or the vibration,were present before I got the car serviced!! The engine was as sweet as a nut,before I got it serviced,but I think they ruined it!!! Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!!!! This car is my baby pls help!!!! I should say that it is an Irish car,living its life in Ireland :D I would love to donate to the site but am unsure,as we are all in euro currency here?
