1998 hyundai cam


#1

Anyone know if the cam bearings in a 1998 hyundain elantra (4 cyl - I think they were all four cyl) are replaceable or am I looking for a new head?


#2

No they’re not replaceable as there are no cam bearings. The camshaft rotates on machined surfaces on the head itself.

#3

what info are you using to determine that you need a new cam shaft bearing?


#4

What does your Haynes Repair Manual #43010, in the Engine Overhaul section tell you?


#5

What are your symptoms? How did they begin?

I too am curious as to why you suspect you need a new head. The only way I could conceive of these surfaces getting damaged is due to a loss of lubrication, and there are frankly other things such as the main crank bearings and the cylinder walls that will self destruct well before anything else.
