Question about 2006 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

Got gas in crankcase of 2002 sonota

My daughter's car with 174,000miles which she jumps in drives 7 blocks and parks until school's out then comes home. Weather has been from minus 5 to minus 26 for the past week. The oil light came on, and when I checked oil level it was an 1/8 " over full and smelled like gas. There was fluid around the oil fill like pressure had built up and sprayed a little out. Weather had warmed to 20's and light nolonger came on Took it to my mechanic and ran diagnostic tests which showed everything in good working order. The O2 senser was not occillating as quickly as he wanted to see,but no codes were written. He changed the oil, and changed the fuel filter. Called tech support and they suggested changing oil every 1-2000 miles. Are we missing something?

Possibly but to find the fault have the fault codes read . It may be the accelerator position sensor . Don't waste money until you have the codes to point you in the right direction

2002 Ford Escape (my daughter just came home from school) sitting in driveway and all of the power steering fluid has leaked onto the drive. I refilled and it all leaked out again.

I don't know why you would add fluid, knowing it would leak out

Surely you can see where it is coming from and make the
necessary repair,hose etc

My 2002 ZX2 Automatic's sifter doesn't want to shift out of park. Once I get it out of park it drives fine. Any suggestions?

The park lock-out solenoid is bad. It locks the shifter in park until you depress the brake pedal. You can remove the console and replace this solenoid or defeat it with a zip-tie.

My 2003 sonota's ignition will not turn it is as if it is locked.

Try turning the steering wheel to one side a little when turning the ignition. The locking mechanism for the key tumbler will not turn if there is eccessive force on it. This can happen if you hit a curb while parking and turning off the car, or if the wheels are turned when shutting of the vehicle. My daughter had the same problem after parking and had to call me to ask me what to do. If that doesn't work there is something wrong with the key tumbler locking mechanism.
