Hi, my 99 Hyundai
Accent has been giving me trouble accelerating, it is very slow to build up any
sort of speed from starting, even when the clutch up the full way and foot on
the accelerator in low gears. It has been happening since I collected the car
from a garage that was fitting a new stereo after a break in about a week ago.
Do I need to get the clutch replaced or am I being far too optimistic thinking
there may be another less expensive problem here??? Would really appreciate any thoughts or advice on it

It would be hard to explain over the computer.
The best and easiest way to do this is get a Chilton manual for the auto-parts store. The book runs about $20.
It will show you step by step on how to do it. It's the do-it-yourself bible for your car.
This way you have all the pictures, diagrams and other info you need. It's great research material.
Your vehicle has a hydrolic clutch and is self adjusting. You will need to replace the clutch. this new of a car should not need the clutch replace so allow me to explain something that most people do not know, your clutch does not wear out as fast if you do not accelerate while letting it out. I know that sounds impossible but the less you accelerate while letting it off the longer it will last. Try finding a open and level parking lot and practicing taking off with out touching the accelerator. You have to let off very slow at first but after you get used to it you will find you get smoother take offs and less wear.
I have a solution for your clutch failure.
ALL... Hyundai Tiburons from 2003 and on use a clutch slave cylinder delay valve.
It is designed to smooth your clutch engagement.
Problem?.. It RUINS clutches by slowing down clutch engagement.
It actually MAKES your clutch slip!
All you need to do is REMOVE this silly little 8 dollar part and not only will your clutch feel fantastic, you will have normal clutch wear!
I myself own a 2004 Tibby, and took the valve out since early 2006 and have put 25,000 miles trouble free miles from it.
I thought the clutch felt "Odd".. being a long time driver of manual transmissions, it just wasnt right.
I felt like there might be something slowing down the clutch engagement.
I was right.
This can be considered a Mod, because it improves performance (lack of slipping).
Why Hyundai used this part at the cost of warranty claims is beyond me, but I have given you the solution to your problem.
This part effects both 2.0L,I4 and 2.7 V6 engines.
This will not affect your warranty because they will never know its missing. ;)
I feel hyundai needs to take care of its customers, but I assure you, no matter how you get this problem resolved from the dealer.. PLEASE REMOVE THE DAMN VALVE.. you wont regret it!
