That could be a belt problem. check each belt that you have for loose tension and worn out belt. check also for frozen ac clutch. or adjuster pulley or alternator bearings.

I would think the honeycomb ceramic "Brick" inside the Catalytic Converter has broken up, makes a terrible rattling when this happens.

1987 420 SEL, when starting to run the car after months not used, it is in emergency mode only. Have to drive it on throttle or off throttle or it starts bucking. The car has 140,000 miles on it, worried...


the best thing you can do for this car is drain the tank and start again. the injection system this car uses is a very very good but tempermantal one and poor fuel quality or contamination(like water) will feel like the world is coming apart. change the fuel filter also which is in the rear near the right wheel. it will be a pump with the filter right next to it. these are really great cars. once the tank is drained and good fuel poured in, replace the spark plugs with bosch w8dc with a plug gap of .032".

Hello, I purchased a 2003 Hyundai XG350 last month. When I start the car, put AC or defrost on, and then start driving there is a screeching noise that lasts for 10 seconds and then goes away. If I stop...


See if it goes away when you turn the A/C off. The a/c comes on when you sre in the defrost so yo don't hit the windshield with hot air. The screaching is more than likely the A/C clutch trying to engage, that why it was overlooked or ignored by the mechanic. It is a common thing. The battery should be allowed to recoup from the starting of the car which a few minutes of running woll help so the a/c clutch gets full battery voltage to function.. Turning on the defrost and /or the A/c after about 3 minutes of warm up. Open your hood and have someone turn the a/c on and off, you can hear and sctually see the a/c clutch doing its irritating thing.But keep your fingers out off the engine and don't lean over it with loose clothing. Good Luck, Ned

Air pump noise


air pump noise is common and in most cases it will last a very long time after it gets noisy. U can't buy parts for the air pump for this car, it is either a usd one or a rebuilt one, try A1Cardone, I am sure if they have your pump it is far less than $1000.00

Replace front drive belts. There comes a time when they get so worn and polished that they just don't grip anymore.

Starting my car


Is this car a diesel or gas powered? If it is diesel, the buzzer and light is to warn that the glow plug is still heating and the more the glow-plug heats the car will start easier on colder days. Diesels make combustion by the heat of compression of the fuel by the piston, unlike a gas engine that uses spark from the spark plug to ignite the fuel and make combustion.

Good luck and I hope that helps
