Most of the time when any car runs hot, it will be low on water, If that is not the case then the thermostat would be my second choice, then a close third would be the engine and radiator needs a good cleaning..Before I checked any of these I would check the hoses and the belts to be sure they are in good shape. Make sure your belts are not slipping..On you car, I am putting my money on the belts.

Check engine light came on, why?


the check engine light is on to tell you that something serious has happened to the engine /gear box units. Check oil and coolant levels and the engine for overheating. Run fault codes as soon as you can as the cost now may be low but to ignore the light will result in a costly exercise.

Radiator leaking and overheated. We replaced the radiator thermostat but now the car will not turn over and start. We are thinking sensors need to be reset and head gasket needs to be replaced.

The front drivers side window on my 2005 Hyundai Elentra was working fine last night i rolled it down on my way to church and it got stuck and will not roll up. It appears to be off the track. Could you...


Sounds like the window regulator has malfunctioned. Best solution: Take your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.
