2009 Hyundai Sonata ProblemsCheck Engine Light Due to Faulty Accelerator Pedal Position Switch
Problems with the accelerator pedal position switch may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate; an improved switch is available to fix this problem.
If you experience excessive engine noise on startup (after the engine has been turned off for several hours) that lasts for more than five or six seconds, turn off the engine and check that the engine oil level is correct. If the oil level is correct, the noise may be caused by the timing chain tensioner. Hyundai has an improved tensioner to correct this problem.
Parking lights not turning off intermittently or all the time. The common problem is with the cabin fuse box. Complete replacement of the assembly is necessary to fix the problem.
2009 Hyundai Sonata QuestionsWhy does car clunk when decelerating from 4th to 3rd gear around 35 kph? (2 answers)
I just had the transmission fluid replaced and there is no diagnostic code registering. But there is a definite clunk on decelerating.
My 2009 Hyundai Sonata has a flashing check engine light, mildly shakes when in park and when I accelerate it starts to shake a little bit more.
So my "expert" roommate decided he'd add almost a whole can of r134a to my 2009 Sonata and I believe it's overfilled. How do you discharge and get the pressure back down around the correct amount?
2009 Hyundai Sonata RecallsRust Concern with Rear Suspension
The rear suspension is the attaching point for the control arms and other rear suspension components. Road salt and water can accumulate in and around the rear crossmember causing it to rust. Excessive rust could cause one or both rear control arms to separate from the crossmember resulting in a sudden change in vehicle handling, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the rear crossmember and repair or replace it as necessary to correct this concern.
