Default santa fe 2.4l Timing marks

Hi. I have a 2004 Santa Fe, 2.4L, 4 cyls. I replaced the crankshaft position sensor and after some reading here i realize in did not align the timing mark at the balancer (the one to the right of the crankshaft when you are facing the crankshaft). i can feel the vibration so i have to go and realign everything. my question is: I dont remember seeing a timing mark at the crankshaft and i think it moved out of place. the drawings i saw in the forums do not show that mark. only the ones at the cam sprockets. anybody has a picture of that thing? thank you for any tips you can give me here. too bad i dont have enough posts to get a repair manual. any help will be welcome and very much appreciated. thanks!

I just happened to replace a new timing belt and crankshaft sensor in my 2003 Santa Fe 2.4L. Here are the photos that might give you an idea. Regarding the right balancer alignment is a bit tricky. I remembered I read a posting in this forum , the Admin1 has explained how to do it in detail. Please search for the - "2.4L Timing Belt Replacement - Questions" in this Santa Fe 1st Gen (SM) forum.

Hi Thanks for the photos. I just did the timing belts, water pump and tensioner changes on my 2.4 also.

Everything went fine except that the car is now getting the timing belt squeal again?? Do you know which tensioner needs to be adjusted? I cannot localize which belt is causing the noise.

I adjusted the tensioner (lock bolt 'B' on diagram) with the bolt that is attached to the pump swing arm (wrong terminology but English is not my first language sorry!). But this had no effect.

Should I also realign the other new tensioners that I fitted for the belts? i.e. the ones that tension the crank and cam belts? I had assumed that these cannot squeak as these tensioner 'roll' with the back side of the new belts?

in your first picture, showing the camshaft sprockets...mine are in the same position as the picture..but in the picture, and on my car, the marks are off 2 teeth on the intake camshaft, and 1 off on the exhaust sprocket..do i need to force the sprockets to match the timing marks on the valve cover, or is that just one of them..."your close enough" things? seems you have to turn the sprockets in 2 different directions, put on the belt, be under the car all at the same time..and with only 2 hands..it seems impossible to do..

With timing marks there is no "close enough" spec. It's either on time or not.

I burned a hole in the top of a piston on a Dodge car I bought and when I opened it up to find out why I saw the timing mark was out 1 tooth.

Belt was replaced by previous owner.

Keep in mind the timing marks don't have to be "dead nuts" when you put on the belt. After you tension it, turn the engine over by hand a few times and then check the marks. Tensioning the belt can move the gears 1/2-1 tooth.
