I just recently got my drivers licence and got ownership to my dads 93 sonata v6. It eats oil, smokes, and its not very peppy; the mechanicmy dad always brings it to said it was the rings and it would cost $600 for him to replace them. I, now the owner of this car, think paying 600 for this is crazy and would like to attempt this myself. I have had experience with small engines, in fact my 78 skidoo needed a ring job, and I pulled that off without any problem. If I followed the manual step by step, is there anything that would be overwhelming that would justify paying the 600 dollars? And speaking of manuals, should I buy a repair manual like the Chilton one or is the hma one online sufficient? And are there any 100% necessary "special tools" needed for this job?
