Question about Hyundai Tiburon

1 Answer

No compression on 4 cylinders

I have a 03 tiburon gt 2.7, it will barely start, run for a couple secs then die, wait a while and it will start back, plugs seem wet, i unplugged ecm fuse and cranked car over, only getting compression on 2 cylinders 1 and 6, 1 is 120 and 6 is like 180, other 4 are zero, someone told me if crank sensor is bad it wont allow compression but that doesnt make since considering timing belt rotates cam which opens and closes the valves making compression.

    also when it does start, u can smell gas bad like its not burning, i can see the crankshaft sensor making it not fire and smelling like gas, but i dont see the sensor causing 4 cylinders to not get compression. considering u unplug ecm so it doesnt fire or fuel when your checking for compression.

Yes, you are right. Someone doesn't know what a crank sensor is. Four cylinders at zero means engine repairs are needed. It's a mechanical problem. Very strange that four are zero. Was engine overheated causing head gaskets failure?

Testimonial: "i got the car the way it sits so im not sure, i checked the timing it looks to be in time, took the intake off, intake valves dont look bent, and 2 of the cylinders had like 10lbs or maybe 15, other 2 was zero, one was 120 and 6 was 180 "

Try the ignition switch,

For the Crank sensor there is a small metal disc that mounts behind the sensor if that is cracked or dammaged or installed backwards you will get same results as if it wasn't Make sure the timing marks line up on your timing belt. www.kiatechinfo.com

First, change the fuel filter, and make sure the lines are good. Check the intake manifold bolts for tighness, check all vacuum lines. Best to have it running, wiggle them around and listen for a hiss. Lastly, change idle control sensor, if the other suggestions don't make a difference.

SOURCE: chrysler 300m 2001 starts after unplugging cam sensor

theres a reflash program that needs to be done on these cars, because of extended crank time and cam / crank syhcronizing out, start there,also i had one with same code and found that aftermarket cam sensors dont work, installed dealer part and had the updated reflashing done and solved the problem.

My car, polo 1.6 2003 starts den dies almost immediately


why does the blue box say 2005 swift and 03 polo?, confusing , so I will answer in the generic. (any modern car)

any engine dies for vast reasons, I have a list of 50 .
but breaks down to 4. (in pure physics) Otto cycle engines, GAS.

1: lost DC 12volt power to the EFI system( electronic fuel injection)
2: lost compression on more or all cylinders, 150psi min. is a goal.
3: lost spark, weak spark or mal-timed spark.
4: bad fueling, (too little , or too rich fuel injection)

The ECU works hard to sustain running, via idle speed control valve
and spark timing tricks.
when the above 4 go bad, the ISC function fails and the engine
stalls.
so does, skipping 60,000 mile tuneups. that cause any of the 4.

Reminds me of when a friend of mine had a car with carbon tracks on the distributor cap. I wiped it clean and it worked perfectly. Are the plug cables going to the correct cylinders in the correct order? A hanes service manual actually put the wrong order down in a mustang manual.

rpm will drop when u pull a spark plug wire, i'm assuming this does not happen when u pull # 4 plug wire. This tells me # 4 jug is dead, no compression and not firing.

I think my timing chain jumped time my truck died going down the road kinda like it bogged down then just stopped running and it wont start back when u try to start it it will turn over for couple seconds...


well first off you need to start by checking the compression on all 8 cylinders!!!! to rule out internal engine failure as oppose to jumped timing. its very rare that timing chains will jump especially a double roller chain. get a compression gauge take the plugs out and get a reading on all the cylinders. you should be no more then 10-20psi difference from cylinder to cylinder. but on the chevy motors if there is a problem they usually show well on a compression test! good luck post back up the results then we can go from there.

Dies after running about 2 minutes


It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.
