Hi All, With 170k on the clock, I've got a P0017.  A Hyundai dealership here in Perth has said the timing chain needs to be replaced.  This includes replacing the CVVT and water pump.  They've quoted $4000 to fix it. 

So ok I've gone and tried to get a second quote.  6 mechanics later, I've not been able to make any progress!  They either don't do it or don't call back.  I talked to an engine builder and he's not interested (too risky).  His advice was to sell it.

So can anyone recommend someone in Perth, WA who can do it?

Thanks in advance.

I thought the 1.8ltr engine had a timing belt and not the chain :undecided:

Anyway, you could give Eddy from Thornlie Automotives a call, he's a nice bloke, very honest and a excellent mechanic :link: Thornlie Automotives > Home
