There are a couple of things,and depending on how long you are going to keep the car would depend on what you may want to do. Over time Carbon builds up in the form of deposits and can cause the exact symptom you are describing. The dealerships call this an induction service and it can be performed for around $60-100 at several places. Having it done at a shop like this is best because they perform it using a pressurized system. Another possible cause is a plug, or plug wire misfire. If it were my vehicle and this had not been done in a while, I would go ahead and spend (around $60 for plugs and wires) and go ahead and do this. For this vehicle I would recommend NGK plugs and NAPA has Belden Maxx plug wire set.

Delayed response when accelerating


It sounds like possible fuel starvation. If the vehicle has a carburetor, then I would suggest cleaning it first, if not then please report.

Changed the oil on my 2006 accent one week ago. Have made a few 50 mile trips since the change with no problems and no leakage. Today on the highway the oil and engine lights came on. Loud valve-type...


Have the vehicle properly diagnosed... it could very well be the oil pump - don't risk burning up the engine by oil starvation... get someone to check the oil pressure.

Hyundai coupe excessive fuel consumption


Unless the Check Engine Light is ON, there is no vehicle-related issue to fuel consumption. The computer will deliver the exact amount of fuel needed to satisfy the demands placed on the engine, using input from a large variety of sensors, including the accelerator pedal position sensor. Fuel economy estimates in the USA are just that, estimates, derived from a chemical analysis of emissions, and not actual driving. And no vehicle ever hits those numbers.

There are numerous outside factors that have a negative impact on fuel economy:
Vehicle maintenance, driving conditions (stop & go driving KILLS fuel economy), accelerator pedal usage, overall vehicle speeds, loads carried, etc.

Remember, the more you use the gas pedal, the more you use the gas station!

1995 1500cc Hyundai Accent seems have a fuel starvation problem.


Your gas tank must of been crushed,in some kind of offroad incident because if you can't fill it up the filler tube must be kinked.Or the pollution system is faulty such as the purge valve or vapor canister.

It sounds like there could be 2 possible problems. 1) the spark plugs might be too old and do not convert power efficiently causing it to shudder or even stall when power needs increase (I suggest a tune-up). Or 2) the timing could be off and needs to be adjusted by a mechanic, while you're at it you might want to see how worn your timing belt is, if it no longer grips it can cause off time explosions in the valve chambers and you'll definitely get some shaking action and even stalling and if it snaps, the car won;t be going anywhere (til the belt it gets replaced).
