Do you have a "check engine" light?

A failing pcv valve can certainly cause poor engine performance and stalling. It will be a cheap "fix" and, regardless if it fixes the problem or not, needs to be changed as part of your vehicle's routine maintenance.

The pcv in your vehicle is located under the hood, in the center of the upper engine area, mounted in the intake manifold.

Here's a photo of what you're looking for (roughly):

2007 Hyundai Accent SE 1.6L Flashing check engine light and no power. Automatic transmission, car doesn't want to shift.


Injectors, compression, several engine mechanical issues ( burnt valves, weak or broken valve springs, piston rings, head gaskets, cracked block or heads ) and bad ECM drivers for injectors/coil packs can all cause engine misfires. The flashing light means possible catalytic converter damage .

Why is the pvc valve n/a also hose


Hi Craig:
Please tell me what you mean by n/a.
PVC valves usually will not stop an engine from starting.
If they are occasionally cleaned, they normally do their job just fine.
Can you tell us exactly what happened to the car immediately before it decided not to start.

Esp light on 2001 aclass


Hi there lose of power steering and the eps light coming on could be the power steering pump is broken or near stuffed so will require a new pump. The other reason is that your power steering oil level is to low and needs toping up. Also check that the drive belts driving the power steering pump are tight and not slipping.

Hope this helps.

My 95 camry is stalling out.


This usually caused by a sticking idle air control valve, it's attached to the throttle body, to fix this remove the throttle body and then the valve and clean both of them using a can of air intake cleaner and a brush, clean all the carbon deposits and make sure the IAC valve does not hang upbefore reassembly.
