I want to know if the motor on the 1998 elantra is a j1 modle or j2? Where can I look to see what it is?

The engine ID number is above the trans, printed on the block, below the head. There may be a emission decal under the hood showing a J1 or J2, if you call the Hyundai Parts dept with your VIN number they should be able to tell you.

What is the firing order on the 1.6 engine also what marking is there on the motor to do the timing by using a timing light

To the best of my knowledge the 1998 Hyundai Elantra has only a 1.8L (1796cc) engine. Are you sure on the 1.6L?

For the 1.8L:
Firing Order:
(back of engine)
(front of engine)
Ignition Connections:

As far as the markings on the outside of the engine, I'm not aware of any. However, by placing markings (white paint) on the Crankshaft Pulley (lip) and using the Timing Strobe you can get a relative idea. However this is not totally accurate, as the Camshaft Position is not visible. With a 4-Cylinder Timing symptoms will be very obvious.
Click on the following Link. It has the Timing Marking Diagrams for the inside of the engine.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at!

I need the cylinder head torque settings for 1997

1998 Hyundai Lantra "G4GM" engine 1795cc.there are two heads or blocks, one is called the M10, other is the M12, figure out which one you have cause the torque is different for stage one by 5nm........... Dont get confused theres 2 different engines so 2 different torques for stage1---------
heres the full details: Stage 1 - m10 = 30nm / m12 = 35nm-------------------------- -------- Stage 2 - tighten by 60-65 degrees ------------ stage 3 - tighten by 60-65 degrees. no sequence is given in the data book for tightening so go off what you thinks right, it doesn't matter on this engine.
