Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Reving High I have a 2001 Hyundai Accent. I fixed the throttle position Sensor in Sept 08. For a month now, my check engine light has come on and off. When I'm driving, especially in neutral and first gear (as my car is a standard), it reves sometimes up to 3 RPM When I brought in the garage over the Holidays, they said it was fine. nothing wrong and the light went off by then. It came on again last week. I had a friend who scanned it with that machine and it read Throttle Position Sensor. I brought it back to the Garage who scanned it too as the light came back on and they are saying, the throttle position sensor is fine as they tested it and compared it to a brand new one and it's fine. There were other codes too that came up but the check engine light came back on again and it reves to about 3-4 RPM and while driving, it's rough Any Suggestions??

    Well, No I had not tried that. However, the mechanic who fixed my current throttle position censor said it was working fine as they tested it. Any other suggestions?

Did youmtry disconnecting the battery for five minutes, then reconnect, start engine and let it idle for 5 minutes with everything off, including radio and heater. If this don,t work you may have a faulty position sensor. I hope this helps.

Where is the map sensor located on a 2001 hyundai accent gs?


Your engine has likely worn out. You are describing the situation when the piston rings are so heavily worn that gas pressure forces itself into the engine sump, pressurizing the lower oil case, and forcing itself into the evaporation system, which then makes its way to the air filter housing.

I advise doing a compression check on the engine at your local garage and repairing or replacing the engine if necessary.

I replaced the throttle position sensor on my ,02 hyundai santa fe,now it will not shift gear and check engine light is on with throttle position sensor circuit A high voltage, how can I fix this


how did you know the TPS was bad? did you break anything (vacuum tube, wire connector) during repair? good ground? was it really clean in there when you installed new TPS? i don't know the santa fe, but did you disconnect the battery during this? you may have to reset the OBD system. if you have the OBD tester i think it has this function, or check usere manual, possibly a combination of actions involving ignition, shifter and/or lights.

2001 hyundai accent 1.5l codes 300 301 303 have ck tim belt,comp at 200 psi .replace spark plugs,crank sensor ,fuel pump&filter .will start then die


Replace the throttle position sensor (TPS) (since you've checked/replaced anything else which could be causing this problem - except WIRING). Reinspect all wiring & connectors/connections before replacing the TPS. Also, I've seen (on occasion, a faulty "Main Relay" create the condition you describe). Suppose you have a faulty ignition switch (ignition key). When placed in the 'START' position, the engine starts normally, BUT, when you release IT to the 'RUN' position, the engine dies - CLUE?

Reving High and Won't Start


I have an idea... why don't you have a 'qualified Hyundai Technician' diagnose the problem?.. First of all, you describe an Engine Management System problem. I assume it a 1.6 DOHC engine. There are numerous suspect causes for your problem. Example, Idle speed actuator, Cam Position Sensor, Throttle Position Sensor, Injectors, Crank Position Sensor, Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor, Engine Coolant Temp Sensor, Heated Oxygen Sensors, Mass Airflow Sensor (this one's my favorite.. along with Throttle position sensor), Intake Air Temperature Sensor, and the list goes ON... vacuum leaks, throttle body problems, PCV problems, Oh!.. and let's not forget plugs, wires, coils, fuel pump problems, etc. The one most often found as cause for excessive rev is the ECU (Engine Control Unit). Try this out... disconnect the battery. Take the the pos (+) cable and connect/touch it to the neg (-) cable for 60 seconds.. then reconnect the cables to the battery. Tell me what happens after you drive it for awhile. If it's still acting up... take it in for diagnosis.

2001 Hyundai Santa Fe 78K miles on it...purchased 8/04 began having problems 10/08. Car starts no problem. After sriving for 10 minutes when coming to a stop the car feels like it does not want to stop,...


TRY THESE TWO (2) THINGS..
Step 1: Disconnect the battery cables and touch them together for 30 seconds (this ZERO'S out the PCM/ECM (Power Train Control Module/Engine Control Module). If there's GARBAGE in memory of this computer (PCM/ECM), this should CLEAR it.
Step 2: Check the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS, it's a potentiometer) for any ERRATIC resistance changes at idle position or any other position for that matter. If you find, what I call BAD SPOTS, in the TPS, replace it. I know of NOTHING ELSE which would cause the problem you describe and NOT turn on the "Check Engine" light

99 hyundai accent starts sometimes. not battery


ok when the check engine light comes on that usually indicates a engine malfunction...what you can do is go to your local autozone and they can do an OBDII test for free..my bet says it is the cam or crank sensor.. DO NOT SHUT THE CAR OFF AT AUTOZONE..LOL

2002 throttle position sensor


The sensor is on the side of the throttle body, it has three wires going to it, it is connected to the throttle blade so when the throttle is opened it reads that info and sends it to the PCM.
