The car was in a rollover, but the headlights seemed OK afterward. The low beams don't point toward the road properly. I don't want to have to purchase a whole new headlight assembly. Hoping these were adjustable and that my trip to the shop will be inexpensive?? Please help and this is a nice web site!

I can not find ignition coil for a Hyundai Accent 1.4 liters from 2012 but i can find the one for 1.6 liters.
I want to be sure it works well for both machines.

After getting new tyres and alignment now I have a clunck noise I've replaced sway bar bushings links trailing arm bushes I have new control arms to yet put on but only after this,could the person that done the alignment not adjusted or wrongly adjusted I no they have special settings, that are marked is this my noise

We replaced purge valve but seems to be doing same thing. Should we see immediate improvement ?

The stick shift in my Manual 1998 Excel has for some reason placed every gear one space to the right. So now, basically, first and second gear don't exist, where third was is where first is now, where fourth was is now second, where fifth was is now third and where reverse gear was is now fourth. I'd love to know possible causes of this and solutions?

I can hear it shift clear up to 3rd but after I don't it said corrosion of the tmc module and I don't want replace tranny again got codes checked at auto zone

I noticed the problem within the last 2-3 weeks... sometimes when I turn the car on it makes a brief squealing noise, and recently when I make a turn (not necessarily a sharp one) it squeals for quite a few seconds. I originally attributed it to wetness or the cold, but it has happened when it's dry and not too cold outside. The car has approximately 67,000 miles on it. Recently had the spark plugs replaced and a coolant flush. I was told I'd need a new timing belt in a few months. (not sure if any of that helps) Any advice is helpful. Thanks!

My car is a 2008 Hyundai Accent, purchased brand new, only 15 miles on it when I drove it off the lot. At about 8 thousand miles, alternator bracket broke. Then again at 16 thousand, car now has about 35 thousand on it, MAYBE 36 thousand, and its broken again. Why? What is wrong with my car? It IS still under warranty.

Bought my Hyundai Accent HB 3 weeks ago. Have a beep noise (like a microwave sound) comes from front of car. What is it signaling? Makes the noise every 15-20 minutes parked, driving, locked or unlocked. I cannot figure it out. Nothing is left on when engine is off, I checked all doors too. So what is causing it to beep? Hyundai has NO clue as to why!!!!!!!! Service tech doesn't know why either!!!!!!! Please let me know..

I bought my car in March of this year and it has 15,000 miles on it. I've been told that my rear brakes are rusting it's not covered under warranty and it's due to the elements of WA state and the fact that they are rear drum brakes. I've had drum brakes before and haven't come across this. What can I do about this?

At times when driving, the light will flicker on and off. don't know if it's a sensor, and if it is, don't know where it is or if I can replace it myself


E check states car wont read

Got a code of P0305, cylinder 5 misfire, How can that be when it's a 4 cylinder engine need input and help thanks

I have a hyundai accent (1.6 vtvt petrol 2008 model). The car is knocking even in idle and shacking while accelerated . Went to the local dealer they changed the ignition coil and that did not fix the issue , then they found some oil under ignition coil and spark plug. They are suggesting there might be a gasket leak. And the cost of the repair is $700.

Please suggest if they are fooling me. And what should i check to confirm the gasket leak

It has come loose on one side and is hanging loose on that one side. Appears to be some kind of cardboard or pressed fiber of some kind.

Reliability,maintenance costs, Snow performance, suggestions. Thank you!

My engine light has been on for awhile but was told it was my spark plug. It would jerk a bit when accelerating and oil light came on. Now wont start. It turns over just wont catch. Still have power. I also just found out there is a recall on my stop lamp lights. Does that have anything to do with it?

When I turn the hazards on, the brake lights flash. No wiring repairs have been done...just started doing this on its own. Rear lamps also don't illuminate when you turn the headlights on.

Thank you for your time.
