2004 Hyundai Tiburon Q&A

2004 Hyundai Tiburon Question: loss of acceleration

I've got a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon GT V6 2.7L 172hp engine. I just got an all of a sudden loss in acceleration/power. It is a 5 speed manual, and it has no accel at all. It took me about a minute just to get to 35mph. What can the issue be? Bad spark plug? -
Answer 1
It is hard to accurately diagnose a car over the net, but I can get you started. Did the Check Engine light ever come on? This will be helpful, because there will be a code in your computer that will help lead to the cause of your loss of power problem. 1 spark would be noticed, but on a V6, you should still have a little more power with the other 5 working than you seem to have. Yes have the computer scanned, just to see if there is record of the problem. Does it feel like your clutch is still good? -
