Question about 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Burnt out clutch

My 4WD is a 2006 Hyundai Terracan. At 56000km while the clutch was depressed a burning smell came out from the bonnet. We noticed grey smoke and it smelt like burning brake fluid. The clutch was welded to the floor but the vehicle moved forward once i removed my foot from the brake. As they could not find driver or mechanical fault we paid close to $2000 to replace the cluth plate etc. Now 10000 km later the same has happened again.They are still telling me they can't find a fault.

Why the air conditioning of my terracan is not working

Check to see if the ac clutch is engaging when you switch on the ac . If not then the first thing to do is to go to an accredited ac specialist shop and have the system checked for leaks as they have to be fixed first or it will be a waste of money re-gassing the unit

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.
