2004 Hyundai Elantra Problems

Check Engine Light and Transmission Won't Shift Correctly

If the automatic transmission does not shift properly and the Check Engine Light illuminates, the speed sensors in the transmission may have failed. The sensors are simple and inexpensive to replace.

Check Engine Light Due to Failing Canister Purge Valve

A failing vapor canister purge valve may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This valve is part of the evaporative (EVAP) emission control system.

Power windows stopped working.

My power windows won't work. Power locks function well but the buttons for my windows won't.

Cost about $800. At about 69K the check engine light came on - the O2 sensor had to be replaced; because the car was built with Calif. emission, required a special part. In all, $500+.
