Tuesday, July 25th, 2017: Today took the 2003 Hyundai Elantra Gt for a ride, the fuse didn't blow, FUSE is intact and perfect. But... the engine light is still on.
New Oxygen Sensor 7/25/2017. Recent new Catalytic Converter also, 3/01/2016.

1) I was also told, 7/25/2017, maybe to take the car on the highway and get the heater wire to get to temperature and the engine light will go out. And or the computer will accept it.....?
2) Get my mechanic friend to turn the engine code off and wait and see if it goes back on. If so change the Oxygen Sensor....?

Recent changes.
1) Replaced original Oxygen sensor 2 days ago, 7/23/2017, and the fuse blew. Replaced fuse.
1A) Recently. 1 month ago, 6/2017, passed emissions test, got tags!!
2) There is a new catalytic converter, replaced 15 months ago.
3) I was told by a certified mechanic after an inspection, that the catalytic converter was turning blue......he said maybe try changing the oxygen sensor for starters. so i did and recently. Rest of inspection was great and no other concerns.

**I need the car for work reasons and until I find another, but if if my problem is fixed, then I'm good.......
**I'm looking for the RepairPal experienced mechanics for quick answers or approvals and ideas.

Thank you ALL!!!

How can i check if it has a leak?

It drinks gas it sometimes turns off when you make right turns and we have replaced a lot of parts and tested many others now the gas hand doesn't work now

The check engine light is not coming on when it did it said misfires and running lean . I have replaced all spark plugs and all ignition coil's . This all started after I replaced an oxygen sensor

So I filled it with water. It has been running alright but it's still running hot, and none of the water has leaked out. What do I need to do for it to quit running hot. I was thinking change the thermostat. But I want other people's opinion too.

The car is perfectly running when the engine is cold. After about 10-15km running, then the problem arises where the car is experiencing jerking and loss of power. What is the problem?. However, it is no issue on idle during either cold or hot engine.
1. Fuel pump is already replaced new
2. spark plugs are already replaced new (4 nos)
3. Plug's cable is new and tested OK.

There is no other issues with the engine.

The side of the driver's seAt thAt holds the power controls for seat has broken, need estimate for repair. This only happened on this car , have three others and never had this problem.

Tried to wind it up and down but it seems like it fell off track or something...

Changed the battery and replaced terminals will not crank and none of the lights work. Makes one click noise and that is all.

which way is up?

rear signals work fine with hazards on but nothing at the front. if i try to put on signals with steering wheel lever i get quick flashing in the rear but still nothing at the front?? replaced the control relay under dash by right side of drivers already and still the same. please help?

I have replaced the blower motor, the regulator, and the multi function sensor and my a/c still won't blow it sounds like my compressor turns on but I still have error Kla a 1000

the squeal is constant above 25mph, the pitch does not change with rpm. the noise does stop when under 25mph. the noise can be heard echoing off other vehicles, buildings ect... also has a rubbing/grinding noise when making a right turn, coming from left from wheel. im thinking wheel bearing but could it be something else. i already checked drive belt and brakes for possible issues causing the squeal. also wind noise i checked for. this noise is a constant squeal above 25mph and the pitch does not change due to rpm increase or decrease. it also does it if put into neutral while driving as well as turn key off while driving (not suggested to do this tho) but anyway regardless the squeal is still there even in neutral as well as engine off just enough to have controlled steering. no check engine lights or nothing of that nature... any help or ideas be much appreciated. Thanks! Russ
