Hyundai Problems

Check Engine Light and Transmission Won't Shift Correctly

If the automatic transmission does not shift properly and the Check Engine Light illuminates, the speed sensors in the transmission may have failed. The sensors are simple and inexpensive to replace.

cd drive error 43

My cd player on the car keeps saying (on the screen) that the cd can't play because of error 43

Noise on Startup Due to Failing Timing Chain Tensioner

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.

This is one of the best cars I ever owned!
