Your model Hyundai has an issue with premature wear and failure of the timing chain tensioner. If your vehicle is still in warranty, your dealer should replace it and fix it and any collateral damage caused. What you describe is a classic case of noise from the tensioner as it begins it descent into total failure. Unfortunately, you failed to have the problem fixed before it maxed out. What probably has happened is the tensioner has broken, causing the timing chain to slip. This will result in the vehicle failing to run and causing catastrophic internal engine damage. You can thank your closed-mouthed Hyundai dealer for not making you aware of a problem that they are fully aware of, but don't care about since the majority of cases fall outside the warranty period.

SOURCE: Loud ticking/knocking/rattling sound when I start/accelerate

hi is it miss-firing as it sounds like a knocking noise can be anything but if you can feel it on the accelerater pedal then the noise sounds like its on the inlet valve side which would transfere the noise up the throttle body where the accelerater is located it could be something as simple as a tappet come loose to a burned valve you need to have a look do a compression test and take the rocker cover off see if theres anything come loose yates210456

You need to do a compression test on the engine cylinders. It appears one of the cylinders is not firing and dragging the rest of the engine down in power. The compression test will show if one of the cylinders has a problem.

SOURCE: Clicking noise when accelerating

It's hard to diagnose with just the small information you have stated, but it 'sounds' like it's that Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve gasket.

In your cylinder head is a runner that brings exhaust gas up through the intake manifold.
The EGR valve is attached to the intake manifold, and the sensory part of the EGR valve sits down in the pathway of the runner.

A bad EGR valve gasket will let exhaust gasses escape, making the sound you described.

SOURCE: accelerated clicking/knocking noise when i start driving

sounds like your CV joints are worn out. If the clicking noise gets worse when turning then its a definite possibility. Also check the CV joint boots for splits as this can quickly wear them out. The dust mixes with the grease to form a grinding paste.

I own a 2007 Hyundai Sonata. I never use the ashtray except for spare change. Tonight, on my way home, I noticed that after I pushed it back in it would not stay closed... Suggestions on how to fix?


Hi, Most ashtrays have a spring type clip that holds the tray in place.
In your case you have to bend the clip so it sits properly in the stop.
Do not over bend. Good luck.

How do you change the oil on a 2011 sonata?


Changing the oil in a Hyundai Sonata is an easy task that should be performed every 3,000 miles. Follo the below steps to change the oil on your Hyundai Sonata:
1) Ensure the car is parked on a flat surface. Place a drain pan under the engine. Locate the oil pan directly under the engine. The oil pan will be at the very bottom. Now, unscrew the drain plug at the front of the oil pan with a socket wrench. Allow all the oil to drain out into the oil pan. Tighten the drain plug back into the oil pan with a socket wrench.
2) Locate the oil filter in front of the engine. There will be a cut-out in the protective shield where the oil filter is located. Unscrew the oil filter with a strap wrench. Allow the oil to drain into the oil pan. Place the old filter in with the waste oil.
3) Fill the oil filter with fresh engine oil. Screw the filter on to the filter housing by hand. Do not wrench tighten, which could strip the threads of the filter or filter housing. Open the hood for access to the engine compartment. Unscrew the oil cap on the top of the engine.
4) Pour in three quarts of engine oil. Pull the engine oil dipstick out of the dipstick tube and wipe it clean. Push the dipstick back into the dipstick tube. Pull back out and look at the engine oil level. If the oil on the dipstick does not stop between the two marks on the dipstick, pour in a half quart of oil and check the level again. Do not overfill.
5) Start the car and allow it to run for few minutes. Turn the car off and check the oil level once again. Add another half quart of oil if necessary. Ensure the oil cap is back on the engine and the hood is closed. Hope this helps and if you need any parts for your sonata, this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews http://www.buyautoparts.com/carmodels/Hyundai/Sonata.html

Key is stuck in ignition in 2007 hyundai sonata


The problem is in the tumbler(s) inside the assembly. Before you do anything, try penetrating oil to see if that works... otherwise, the entire assembly will need to be replaced.

Major oil leak after oil change


Your filter was installed either without the rubber seal, or the seal wasn't lubed before installation and it slipped, causing an improper seal. You will have to drain the oil again, remove the filter, and make sure it is reinstalled with a proper seal.
