Try pulling and pushing the steering wheel, left and right, while you turn the key. This is a common problem.

SOURCE: Hyundai Sonata 2000 model 4

Hi there. I can solve this dangerous problem you are having. You would loose acceleration at lights and intersections, the engine will shake and revs can go crazy. The issue is the MAF (mass air flow) sensor. It was recalled in 2001 as a safety problem as people died driving this model of sonata. If you connect your comp up to a diagnostic machine you will find its the MAF the problem is a problem that is hard to ctah on a diagnostic machine though as it comes and goes. You will need to replace the MAF ASAP as you can die from this fault and hyundai will not care due to the age of this car.

If your Ignition switch is hard to turn ...... Believe it or not, check the transmission assembly for debris... I had a small piece of wire caught up and when I threw the shifter to 'PARK' it wasn't going far enough to release the ignition key!

Your going to have to get the codes from the theft deterrent module.This is what is causing your vehicle not to start.The theft deterrent module is seeing a problem and will not let you start the car.I wouldn`t bother with the fuel pressure regulator or you`ll just be throwing more unneeded parts at it.Get the codes for the security system and this will help in finding the problem.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Have you ever put in the gasoline tank any injector cleaner yet because the cleaner will unclog the injectors so full amounts of gasoline can get into the piston chambers the right amounts so try putting injector cleaner into your gas tank. When you put this into the gas tank to remember that it takes time for the cleaner to get to the injectors so you might have to keep trying to start the vehicle many times for the cleaner to unclog the injectors. This will not hurt your vehicle at all so go try this.

Why does my 2000 camaro 3.8 have a random surge during acceleration when the Asr is turned on?

ASR is your traction control, the reason why you have a surge is that the ASR is calculating how much force to give to each tire based on sensor data, and this takes time. When you turn it off, the acceleration is treated like any other car with out traction control. The 2000-2003 Camaro had one big complaint, a laggy traction control. You could potentially fix this by replacing the computer unit with a faster aftermarket model and changing sensors out with more efficient models, also tuning the engine can help reduce lag time or acceleration delay.

My 2000 honda civic wont turn over and has no spark but the ignition coil and modual are both fine

Won't turn over? Do you mean the starter won't crank the engine over?

Or the engine cranks over and won't start, and you have tested for spark when cranking and have no spark? And then you have tested the coil and ignition module, and they tested out good? Am I on the right page here? If so, maybe the next thing to check would be the crank position sensor. The ecu (computer) signals the ignitor (ignition module) when to initiate spark after it digests the signals from the crank position sensor and the cam position sensor.

Im having problems with my 2001 3.8 v6 camaro. it wont start most of the time and when it does start it immediately stalls. i can hear the fuel pump turn on and the car turns over normal. any ideas on what...

Most GM vehicles from the mid 80's to around the mid 2000's have this problem. The problem is the "antitheft" systems that GM has been using. The number one symptom of this problem is seeing a light on the dash that says SECURITY. Read this link for info on these systems and some DO IT YOURSELF ways to fix it forever.
