When starting it will rev up to over 3000 after a min goes back down but also revs up like that when driving and while shifting.

There's a click sound when the lights go off. Headlights are unaffected. The lights go on again after a minute or so. Then it can happen again.

This happens anytime I brake. My RPM's will go up, yet my car seems to be in neutral for a short time before I actually move. Then, my RPM's drop back down to zero, and I will accelerate normally.

I purchased an 03 Tiburon from a guy and he thinks it had a blown head gasket, it wont turn over, so instead of trying to trace eveything and find out what the problem is, I decided to order a replacement engine from ebay with less miles. Is tjere a way to adjust the odometer to reflect the new engine's miles

I have been having issues with the Dual Mass Flywheel currently in the vehicle i.e. clutches constantly going out, so I am currently looking for quotes on a Single Mass Flywheel kit and clutch replacement.

All other lights work.

Could the brake switch be bad!

So a few months back I had a overheating problem, which was a leak in my hose. I replaced all hoses. My radiator was also replaced a few months prior to that. I also re did all spark plugs, replaced wheel bearings, hub assembly's for the front, tie rods, and end links. Then I started to get a backfire. It doesnt do it when the car is cold. It's not consistent. But it does do it when I am at a stand still in park or traffic, and sometimes when accelerating. I am not running any codes.

replaced the cluster with a newer one and still speedometer or any other gauges

My wife drives a 04 Tiburon, the transmission fluid needs to be changed and all I need to know is can I use Castrol import fluid or do I have to buy the fluid from the dealer at $20 a quart? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thx

Cold or hot it cranked easy but now for a week its hard to start,is it the plugs?

It will kill the engine but the key won't come out unless battery is disconnected

I had my car checked to see if I can get it passed for an inspection so I can register my car in Georgia. The inspector said everything looked good and passed besides the SRS light. He said that the air bag should have came on and slowly fade away. My SRS light never came on or flashed. I was wondering what could be wrong and how much would it cost to get my car checked for the SRS issue from a local shop.

I know I need to pull the intake manifold, because you can't get to the three rear plugs.Is this the only way?

the suggested battery cranks out 700 cold and 850 (32degrees) but it will not start car unless i boost it and it wont hold charge?? but it works with a marine battery perfectly fine?? anyone know why? i even returned the suggested battery thinking there might have been a dead cell in it but the new battery wont work either?

The driver side door doesn't seem to shut tightly any more and the "door open" alarm goes off and the inside lights go on when I make a left turn.

Do you think I need to replace my timing belt on my 2004 tiburon V6 with 70,000 miles. It is a car that has been a trip car for us. 90% of it's miles are interstate. It has always been garaged.
