Default 2005 Hyundai Accent 1.6 engine

The engine is approaching 120,000 miles. Back at 60,000, I replaced the timing belt and water pump.

Question: Besides replacing the belt, do you "highly recommend" replacing the belt tensioner and water pump? I buy all parts from the Hyundai dealer. I want to save as much money as I can, but rather be safe than sorry. Are there anything else you would recommend replacing while I'm in there? Thank you for your advice.

Belt, tensioner and water pump.

If the pump goes you will have to take it apart again, if the tensioner goes the belt may break and you will out much more than a few bucks that the tensioner cost.

Yeah do em all. Water pumps are fairly cheap and easy when its already apart, and tensioner is dirt cheap.

Thanks fellows for your advice. I've serviced TV's for 40 + years and I know sometimes, there are parts that always will give problems, but some other parts never did. That's why I was curious about this particular Hyundai engine. Some say the water pump seldom gives problems on this engine. And say only use Hyundai parts. I'll take your advice and replace all of them. Thanks again.
