Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent
Hi i have a 1998 Hyundai accent 1.3 and it burns a lot of oil it does not smoke badly but seems to use oil at quite a rate
also and my main problem is that i had a tapping type noise best way to describe is racthety rather fast noise and its gotten louder and louder
after reading here i am lead to asume tappetts??? but i have no real idea
any sugustions and sollutions thanks and costs involved
as will have to scrap if very expensive
Sounds to me that it is using to much oil and its time for a rebuild or replacement. the noise you here is most likely lifters and tappets, when it gets low on oil it will do this, and if it gets to low it will burn up the rod and main bearings. what you need to do is deside what you want to do with the car, rebuild engine or replace, i don't have any idea on price, but all you have to do is call a local salvage yard and get a price on a used engine, and then a shop that does rebuilds. and weight the diiference, i think you will find it will be cheaper to just get another car. i can give you a gusstament on cost,used engine, 400 to 600 + labor, rebuild 1000 to 2000+ labor. remember thies are just guessaments. you will have to call around your area to get the correct prices.
