Question about 2006 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

If my camshaft broke on my 2006 Hyundaii Sonata will my car get noisy and feel like it's not getting gas

First the check engine light came on. I took it to Auto Zone to check it and they said it was something to do with the camshaft but it was ok to drive. After about 20 minutes driving it got loud and felt like it wasn't getting gas.

Basically, if your camshaft were to break, 2 things. One is, the motor will no longer run at all. The camshaft is on the top of the engine inside the valve cover, and it is responsible for opening and closing the valves.
Second, take some pictures, because camshafts breaking is really as rare as hen's teeth!
Wish I could tell you what the problem is, but my only suggestion is: don't drive the car, or even start it for that matter. Have it towed to a repair shop. This sounds serious.

SOURCE: Check Engine light and ESC OFF light

I had an issue where the ABS and ESC lights would go on and wouldn't turn off unless I restarted the car (sometimes they would light up again even if I had restarted). This was because the speed sensor was broken on my back tire. After the dealership replaced it, (under the 36,000 mile warranty) all was good and I have yet to see the lights come back on.

Issue: ABS & ESC would not turn off
Solution: Replaced broken speed sensor on tire

Sonata engine cranking but not firing

Proceed like this :
(1) Check the fuel flow , could be problem of fuel pump.
(2) Check the camshaft and crank shaft position sensor , there must MIL light glowing because of it. If yes , The Camshaft Position sensor is typically located in the cylinder head of the engine and has a cylindrical portion that inserts into the head. The Crankshaft Position sensor is normally located in the timing cover or on the side of the block with a cylindrical portion that inserts into the block.
If No, fuel pump could be the only problem.

Hyundai sonata changed my timing belt and engine would not start?

Why did you change the belt? Did the belt break first? If the belt broke the engine may have bent valves in the cylinder head. If you were just changing it because it was time you may have gotten the crankshaft to camshaft timing off or out of time. Does the engine sound normal when you spin it over with the starter? If it sounds faster than normal it probably has bent valves. Tommy
