    my hyundai elantra is leaking oil and I was told it needed a gasket, but what kind of gasket would it be and how much for part and how much for labor?

    just had valve cover gasket replaced and oil changed, down 1 qt in 50 miles. No water on dip stick. Oil spots when parked.

Tip

Stalling and running rough - Hyundai Elantra - 2001-05


The Hyundai Elantra 2001 - 2005, 2.0 L engine is noted for this problem. It will lack power on acceleration and run rough and stall while driving. The engine light will come on for misfire codes. This problem is caused by a vaccum leak at the intake manifold gasket. The gasket is broken and needs to be replaced.
To replace the intake gasket with a new one, remove the 12m nuts holding the intake to the cylinder head. Then pry back( note: you do not have to completely remove the intake manifold here) the intake manifold to gain excess to remove the old gasket. Remove any excess gasket and clean with brake cleans the surface area of the intake. Install the new intake gasket on to the head and carefully install intake on to cylinder head studs. Tighten up nuts gradually and evenly to 15-20 ft.lbs.

Cause of oil in sparkplug tube?


1.your valve cover's spark plug chamber seal is leaking. Which requires removing the valve covers and replacing the gaskets and seals. 2. Excessive oil spills on to the valve cover and ignition coils when adding oil.

**This excess oil on the plug boots can cause the coils to short and eventually fail.

What is the cylinder compression psi fpr the 2.0 liter engine


usual on 4 cylinder around 175psi.225psi is very high for your car,150psi seems ok,you may have two problems.A leaking head gasket and high compression due to carbon build up on the pistons.Check your Hyundai Dealer to see is this problem is covered under their 100,000 mile warranty,it should be.IF not then
the head needs to come off and had gasket replaced along with clean the top of pistons since they are right there,sounds like and easy fix.also check condition of radiator,and I would rec. replacing thermostat since some Hyundai models had problems with their thermostats
