They have change the tranny fluid 2 times. They said drive it 500 km and if still noisy bring back again. This will be my 4th visit. Won't tell me what they suspect. Just keep saying they are following Hyundai protocol. The latest this week is the car made a huge noise from under the hood,then the car pulled back, did it again 5 sec later, then the traction light came on around every corner for about 30 minutes, road were dry and clear. I was driving in 6th gear. After it did it 2 times. I put the car in neutral and coasted. Traction usually makes a huge noise didn't this time.

Driving down the road, car stalls out at 40mph. I coast it off the side of the road. Car will not start, all lights are working and its cranking, but it will not start. 20 minutes later car finally starts, try to keep it going putters and stalls out. Another 5 minutes of trying and the car finally starts again. Now I'm able to drive it, but my tachometer is completely out. It makes the 15-20 minute drive home, it did seem like it was trying to stall out at one of the red lights - but I threw it into neutral and kept the engine revved. I pull into the driveway and let it sit for about 5 minutes at home, it's fine, idling at about 750 as it normally would. Turn the car off and back on, starts right up - Now my tachometer is working! Drive it around the block, everything works fine. Pull into the driveway let it sit - fine. Turn it off, turns back on fine. Next day turns on fine, makes the 45 min highway commute to work, fine. Driving it home, halfway back the RPMs start dropping, keeps running low RPMs and it's idling around 500 when stopped. Have it at the mechanic now, but he can't duplicate the problem, saying the car is working perfectly now, he doesn't see the issue.... Help please!!

I was pulling into a parking lot and it died on me. I can't get it to start. It will crank like it wants to start but won't. Any suggestions?

It is giving a white smoke nothing is leaking

was told it had a short is there a common area where these cars are known to short

I have changed the plugs, pvc, air filter, put in injector cleaner, and a new fuel cap. I have orderd a tsp sensor. will this take care of the problem?

It can take up to five minutes turning the switch on and off to get them off. I don't have an alarm so they can't be timing out. Sometimes they will turn off after only a few seconds of playing with the switch. Is there a relay that might be going bad. Hyundai wants $120 an hour just to poke around and look.

I have a 2006 Hyundai Accent. Went to take in for 60,000 mile scheduled maintenance. Was told that they couldn't get the hood open and that it could possibly cost an additional $200 or more depending on what is broken. Already going to be paying $675 for the service. I would like to know if that sounds reasonable and what else I could do. Tried to pop the hood myself with the lever and would not open.

This is my first oil change since I pur the vehicle

Follows pavement with rougher pavement , noise becomes worse and

increases with speeds above 50 mph to unusually high levels.

Can a piece of insulation be missing from underneath OR a bad wheel bearing adding to problem.

Tires are Cooper GL which came with car.

How to reduce/eliminate the noise ?

Key won't turn ignition. It acts like its frozen

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?
