where do I find the purge valve at, keep getting code p0441, have cleaned and replaced gas cap

I have a 99 Sonata GLS, 2.0 6 cyl. I took it to the shop with what I thought was a transmission slipping issue. After several hours of their tech checking every tuneup item (compression, timing, etc.) they said that the front 3 cyl were not firing and that it must be the ECM chip.
I took it to the dealership and they said it's never the ECM but usually a tuneup item. They ran the same checks and 2 days later said it was the ECM. They finally get the right one in and it did not fix the problem. They are at a loss now and consulting with "Hyundai Specialists" which I assume means the manufacturer. I believe he said that the injectors are working on the front now, just not firing.
Anyone seen this?

2002 hyundai sonata

temperature control knob was turned all the way to cold. when i went to turn it all the way to hot, the knob didnt seem to have any tightness to it was just loose. i took the knob off the shaft. the knob itself is ok, but the shaft the knob pushes into ( the shaft has a spring on it) just spins around. what is the problem. is this an inexpensive fix that can be done by me or do i have to take it to a auto repair shop? will this be a majoe expense?

When I call to get a price I say I need a power steering hose for the high pressure side. Than they ask me if its for the pump or gear???

after installing timing belt on my 2.4 dohc engine. it will not start. sounds good while drag or popping. I got timing mark position for crank and both cams from autozone. agent had problems finding the 2.4. I was told crank to be at tdc and cam marks to to meet each other at a 9oclock and 3oclock position. was this correct or is there some kind of fuel shut off that takes place when a timing belt breaks while driving?



do i have a zero tolerance engine and may have caused valve damage? I have a 16valve dohc engine. When it broke it did not back fire.

worse when not on gas petal or turning

it is the driver side rear corner. not flush with the pass. rear side.

I've been noticing an exhaust smell coming from the front/middle portion of my vehicle for some time. My check engine light came on and I took it to mechanic. He ran a diagnostic and said I need to replace my catalytic converter. I'm getting it fixed in a couple of weeks. I have to save up. Can I drive the car in the meantime or will I damage it more? I just need to get from A to B temporarily. By the way - best car ever. This is the first major problem I've had.

Is this a suspension problem? Shocks or strut? The sound comes from the wheel areas. Would this be expensive? Also a rattling noise from the back right tire . Almost sounds like a bounce ball inside the tire once I hit 40 mph and up. Please help diagnose. This all happenes at every part of the day ever time.

I cant get the car to start. The spark plug arent firing at all.

The other day while driving on the open highway, the seat belt and battery light would intermittantly flash. Then for about a day it stopped. Then yesterday it started intermittantly flashing, along wtih the ESC and the ABS lights coming on. no other problems, no loss of power, or acceleration. Auto Zone tested by battery at 100% and also electrical checked out good. Alternator belts appear fine. No other symptoms at all. I drive a lot for my job throughout the day and no loss of power, no acceleration or deceleration problems, no idling problems, no reving problems. No trouble starting and no sluggishness on driving or any electric componenets (cab lights, windows, etc.) The only things was these trouble lights showing on dash. Then tonite, I stopped at a red light and upon driving through the intersection, the car died. It will not restart. Only clicking and seemingly little power, power windows sluggish or stop and dash lights barley come on. I cannot get it to start at all and had to get it towed home. Codes read p2106 and p1295, but only these two codes - nothing else and most forums don't make sense as I had not experienced most of the symptoms that others seem to talk about in relation to this.
Ideas? i am outside the warranty. 86K miles as second owner, certified pre-owned.

My airbag light keeps coming on every time someone sits in the back seat. Each time this happens, I was told to take it back to the dealer. This is very expensive so I no longer take it to get reset.

Whenever I start my 2005 Sonata, it usually starts but it cranks up very slowly. What could be the problem

car has been sitting in yard for two months.started the car this morning heater makes a noise in all setting heat works defoster works a/c works

I am confuse do i have a timing belt or a chain when does it need to be change

The problem is when you put it underload it misses and sounds like the motor is popping, this has slowly got worse over 10000kms, fuel economy is still excellent but when idling you can hear the motor running rough but starts every time no problems. Can you tell me if it just needs new plugs and leads it has just ticked over 200000kms had the timing belt done at 121000kms thank you Greg
