    Finally got my 01 Santa Fe GLS V6 into the shop...

    The sound I feared was cam related was apparently a bad idler on the
    timing belt tensioner. Much relief was had by all except the dealer
    mechanic who was probably hoping to make a lot more hours off this job.
    If all goes well I'll be picking it up Monday afternoon...

    The 900-miles-on-the-odometer rental 2005 Neon definetly made me
    appreciate my Santa Fe again ;)

    That's great! What did the noise sound like? I need to learn as much
    about the Santa Fe's as possible!

    Whatever it sounded like, I am sure it sounded Unusual! The Santa Fe's
    don't make too many sounds as a whole!

    Really? Mine makes a whirling sound...it's quite annoying..it's not
    quiet - at least I don't feel it is quiet.
