Tip & How-To about Hyundai Excel

Engine - dash warning lights

Well, this tip is going to be long and on-going as I cannot sit at a computer long enough to do it in one hit, so keep chcking back or asking for more and I will keep on adding to it, until I run out OR people lose interest...ha ha ha.

I am posting this tip to assist those people coming into the forums waiting day and night for that response.....this is simply a reference point for those people who have lost/misplaced their owners manual and a light comes on the dash and they dont not know what it is.

Now, all of these lights are put there by the manufacturer to aid in telling you that there is a problem. We should all pay attention and take npotice, and fix as soon as possible to etend the life of our vehicles.

Some of these can be prevented from coming on, and some happen due to a long period of neglect, or simply because.......but there is always a reason.....I might add further tips and explain what could go wrong on each of these lights, but now, is just a simple summary and picture of what you MIGHT see.

1. Check Engine light

2. Battery (charge) light

3. Oil Pressure light

4. Brake warning light

5. Brake pad wear light

6. ABS (Anti-lock Brake System ) light

7. Water (Coolant) Temperature light

8. Low Fuel Warning light

Many more to come.............stay tuned

My 2007 Kymco 500 MXU starts and idles fine but when you hit the throttle it dies instantly. Ran fine then this all of sudden happened. It did sit for almost a year. Any idea's???

It may be as simple as a bad fuel filter. if the filter is plugged, you may get enough of fuel to idle car, But when giving it gas. there is not enough fuel reaching engine, to keep it running. Its worth a try! God-Bless!

Wheels will not move-car has sat all winter.

hi, if the car has been sitting all this time with the parking brake on then the chances are your brakes are siezed on, now the parking brake locks the back wheels so this is where you should start looking for problems.

now the front wheels should be ok you can try them by jacking each wheel up and try spinning them by hand the front will be stiff but should turn with a bit of force.

how ever you could also jack the back wheels up to check they are solid if they are then you have two options the first would be to give the back wheels a few hits with a big hammer, you will need to hit them pretty hard and doing this should free the brakes enough for you to get the car moving. do this to both sides and you should find you can then use the car.

if after doing this they are still **** then your going to need to take the back wheels off and get a big hammer and keep hitting the back drum till the brakes free up, you wont be able to get to the brakes until they have freed up a bit as the brakes will be holding the drum onto the hub so you need to get them freed up first.

if you try forcing the car to much you can damage the drum at the back beyond repair so be warned.

hitting the middle of the back wheels with a sledge hammer will usually free the wheels up allowing you to move the car once it has started to move the brakes should free up over use.

your brakes wont be much good to start of with as they will be badly corroded so bare this in mind when driving.

you may need to hit the center of the wheels a few times then try moving forwards and backwards then you may need to hit the center of the wheel again, it may take a while but it will free up if you keep going.

1999 ford mondeo rear hub remove and replace with new one, taken old hub off but the new one does not seem to want to go back on very tight fitting, is this supposed to be this tight ? dont want to start hitting with hammer

DO NOT HIT WITH HAMMER!!!! Put it on far enough to start the three bolts, then slowly tighten each bolt a little at a time to keep it straight. When you put the axle nut back on, DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN! This will cause pre-mature failure of the bearing, it needs only to be tight enough to keep any wobble out. Make sure you use the recommended torque rating that came with the bearing. Yes, it is supposed to be tight fitting.
