Question about Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

What to know if my room mate paid to much

2 Questions.1st. we had problems starting our 2001 Hyundai Accent 6 cylinder was told that it was a sensor near the transmission. Was wondering if that is where it is at and how long would it take to change?2nd How much is it for that sensor and is $300.00 to much for the total cost of the sensor and the labor cost? The Check engine light never came on and we had no spark coming from the spark plug's but this was going on for about a month where it wouldn't start then it did until 3 day's ago it wouldn't start for 2 day's. What I really need to know did my room mate who owns the car get scammed; If did who should I contact to report company so he doesn't do it to someone else. My room mate wouldn't be able to handle a court battle because his mentally disabled Vetrean and this guy knew it and part of his disability is he doesn't have the common sense to question thing's like I do. I would of went with him but he didn't wake me up. So I really hope you will help me with this the guy is saying he will take the car if my room mate doesn't pay the other $80.00

Each State has its own Shop License Regulations. You probably can go online to a site with your States name. Once in the site, I know my State has Complaint Forms which can be done Online or Downloaded and filled out by hand.

Mechanics in many States can use a Legal method called a Lien, which is a charge for Repairs recorded against the Title of the Vehicle. Depending on the Laws of each State would determine the way this would be settled.

My initial impression is that if the Mental condition your Roomate has is Service related, then the VA may have a Legal Service available to watch out for the affairs of it's Veterans. But we do not live in a Just and Ideal World, there are Budget cuts, and unless you are his Guardian, the Government may not even talk to you; citing HIPAA protection for his Medical Status.

Most likely your Roomate had to sign a Repair order, and this is different in many States. Having a car returned to him without a full payment of the Repair bill was generous of the Repair shop. Getting a car home and having it not work, is common whether the "Check Engine" light was on or not. The "Check Engine" light does not cover everything.

Now if someone would have contacted us prior to this repair, we could have told you to go to Autozone, Oreily, or Advance autoparts for a FREE scan, but without the "Check" light, the scan probably would not have anything to say.

There are no Regulations for an overpriced repair. But your local News Stations may have roving Reporters doing articles about scam shops. We, in the Detroit area has several "Hall of Shame" newscasts to warn consumers about crooked businesses.

Good luck on this, check the VA, TV stations, even Twitter mass gatherings in front of crooked businesses to get attention.

FC P1529 means "Check TCM"

  • the vehicle is stuck in 3rd gear failsafe, this is what happens when there is a trans fault, but you made a big mistake.
  • you replaced the wrong sensor you put in a vehicle speed sensor wich calculates the rpm and speed of vehicle,,
  • your problem is an input and out put speed sensor wich is also located on top of the trans these sensors measure the speed of the input and out put shafts inside of the trans mission,,
  • you probably will not be able to get these sensors aftermarket, dealer item only i think

SOURCE: oily spark plug,changed plugs now car smokes

You changed 6 coils, but you didn't change spark plugs? The new coils give strong spark to burn off resisdues from your old plugs plus what ever left inside the combustion due to bad old coils causing smoke and bad ordor. Change all new spark plugs so you can have good ignition to burn off all junks inside combustion chambers. Smokes are at the beginning, but it will go away after less than 10 minutes.
If it is not going away you may have other problemS:
Rich mixture causing engine check light come on.
Check if engine oil level.
Check if your coolant level.
Open the oil cap to see if you have milky stuff. If there is milky stuff then you have bad head gasket.
Let me know what is coming out so others can learn from your experience. Good luck.

SOURCE: Grinding between 1st and 2nd gear

The syncro is about $185.00 and labor is hard to say, if it's been grinding and damaged hard parts tthere will be more money for parts and may mean the transmisson has to come out, and thats more money so it could get as high as $500.00 or more depending on what it needs. It's hard to say without tearing it down and looking at the parts.

Error code p1403

p1403 is a problem with the DTML sensor ... thats associated with the charcoal canister ... that is often caused by putting too much gas in the tank (overfilling) ... gas gets into the charcoal canister and contaminates it .. you could also have a bad sensor .. there are two .. one on the throttle body the other on the engine .. sometimes the wiring going to these sensors gets corroded or damaged .. contamination in the canister may clear itself in time if you avoid overfilling ..

Why accent only 6 kmpl ?

Your engine is runing far too rich and will wear very quickly due to the washing of the cylinder walls. Check your air filter first. If only new, then have the injectors cleaned and serviced. Also get the airflow sensor checked out. There are other possiblities, but start off with these.

your model doesn't use an Inertia cut off switch for the fuel pump, chances are the fuel pump has just failed, they do that quite often.
