Step 1: remove the valve cover///step 2: if you see nice gold color around the rods, lifters, and valves and you do not see any black sludge in between the lifters the engine is pretty clean and will also tell you if the car religiously has been getting its oil change every 3k. Also start up the car; listen for tapping noises BUT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE VALVE COVER ON. If you dont hear any abnormal tapping noises then your engine is solid. Try to stay away from arco or cheap gasoline. shell, mobil, and CHEVRON is really good gas for the engine.

My accent won'tgo in gear when let clutchout and it smells like burnt eggs and just screeches


At a guess here I would say that you are up for a new clutch kit. Test it by engaging 1st gear with the engine off--depress the clutch--start engine ---let out the clutch. If it just makes the noise and smells then it will be a clutch kit job.

I brought a car and mileage in odometer is wrong


ignore the electrical problem its a second hand motor end of story ,now change the oil every 6000kms with a oil filter every every third oil change and the engine will run forever ,use the cheapest oil you can buy from a supermarket ,Dont use the AC too much if you can help it as the front crankshaft pulley fixing isnt very good on these engines and excessive use of the Ac will result in the keyway wearing out and the timing going out then the valves start touching the pistons and as it gets worse then the valves bend and it bangs like drums in the notting hill carnival .

My gloplugs are burning very quickly and cant start my car


Check the cut off timer as if the plugs are ON for a longer duration the life will be effected. Also for cold start check the time that the glow plugs are ON, try and see the health of the cylinder, if there is Oil usuage on the engine it will clog on the plugs and make it less effective.

My Acadia 2008 stopped suddenly ,, battery Ok ,, but the engine cannot turn on again I brought many technical guys but no point ,, still when I turn the key on only For your info. The oil is expired (...


{: ) A few of the many possible reasons I can think of : ignition switch, engine fuseblock, ECT sensors, engine control module, TDM, wiring ..... When you said you brought many technical guys, i presume they didint miss checking the oil, and fuel pressure, and coolant. I dont think an expired oil life reading can stall your vehicle. Actually, if the oil life remaining reads 100%, you are still very far to servicing your engine oil. The counting is from 100% going towards 0%. I suggest a scan tool readout, it wont hurt your car much. Just to trim down some of the guessing games, and get a clearer view.

When should I change my timing belt on my 2007 hyundai accent gs hatchback? it has 63000 miles on it.


you wont need to change it until at least 100,000 miles. Typically that will last the life of the car. But alot of people, including myself, wait until it breaks to replace it. It is about $1000 to replace because the engine has to be partially disassembled.

Reving High


Did youmtry disconnecting the battery for five minutes, then reconnect, start engine and let it idle for 5 minutes with everything off, including radio and heater. If this don,t work you may have a faulty position sensor. I hope this helps.
