1999 Hyundai Sonata ProblemsRough Idle Due to Faulty EGR Switching Valve
On the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 Cylinder, a defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) switching valve may cause an intermittent rough or unstable idle engine.
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.
Premature timing belt failure may result in serious engine damage. When replacing a broken timing belt, it is important to inspect and possibly replace the crankshaft position sensor; it is often damaged when the timing belt breaks.
1999 Hyundai Sonata QuestionsWhere is the shift solenoids? (1 answer)
I had it checked by a shop that yes my solenoid is bad and needs to be replaced, so I'm gonna replace them all, but where are they? Is it difficult to get to? I can't find anything online to show if it's a simple fix or not
tried 2 different ones. Did not work. Any suggestions? Catalyst & 02 sensor not ready. Should I unplug the ECU as mentioned to someone else?
