      no your not the pulleys do wear it could have started by a week tension er and a new belt compensated for the worn pulley for a little while. most of the time it is the alternator pulley and alot of the time the alternator doesn't come with a new pulley you have to swap it over.

      Sounds like a battery issue, the clicking is the starter turning on and off rapidly because the battery does not have enough power to crank it over.

      Possible issues are a bad battery, a bad alternator, or an electrical short somewhere.
      in most cases it is the battery some may not last as long as others and is a matter of time of replacement. Have someone jump start your car, or charge the battery, and when or if you get it running and it stays running when you take the cables off, it is a bad battery. If you get it running by jumping and or charging the battery and it does not stay running, then it is another issue like the alternator. Best bet is to get a new battery installed to solve your issue.

      The '04 Elantra only came with the 2.0L four cylinder engine - no V6 is available or will fit into this vehicle.

    My friend had some trouble starting his car yesterday. We finally got it started but wonder if we should take it in.
    My friend had trouble starting his car yesterday. It wouldn't turn over. We tried testing the battery but it was fine. Finally I got in and gave it some gas as I turned the key and it started. A lot of black smoke came out of the tailpipe. We drove it around for a ...

    While driving on the highway the gauges all went dead, the car started bucking and then lost power.
    This is the first time it has happened. The check engine light has been coming on though.

    Why are the coils going bad in my Hyundai Accent?

    Replace timing belt on 05 Hyundai Elantra
    I took my car in to have the air conditioning fixed and was told my timing belt is about to go. I have almost 70,000 miles on it. Does this sound right? They quoted my $425.00 for parts and labor.

      Typically, the timing belt kit; includes - belt, tensioner, plus the water pump - is replaced every 60k miles. Be sure the replacement includes the new water pump as part of the repair - cheap insurance to go ahead and replace with the timing belt replacement.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the timing kit (as described above) with the water pump from around $69.00 for your vehicle. Of course, this is only the parts kit price - the labor to install will be extra.
