Question about Cars & Trucks
2006 Hyundai Sonata shakes and kind of jumps (skips?) when idling. Perfectly fine while in motion but as I start to brake, the shaking comes and the whole car shakes. What could be causing this?

It sounds like you may have a problem feeding the fuel to your engine, I had the same problem with my 89 RS. All the 1989 model's fuel systems were recalled. I think you may need a new fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank in the rear of the car right under the rear axle. The fuel pump itself isn't too expensive, but with other small parts such as the electrical harness upgrade and fuel filter and the labor you should be looking somewhere in the $500 range. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Engine shakes/sputters on idle.
HELLO: I WAS LOOKING AT ALL THE PROBLEMS FOLKS ARE HAVING AND I SAW YOURS AND I STOPPED DEAD IN MY TRACKS BECAUSE #1 I LOVE A CHALLENGES AND#2 I CANT BELIEVE SOME ONE WOULD CLEAN AN OX SENCER ! THEY CAN NOT BE CLEANED AND MY BIG QUESTION IS HOW IN THE WORLD DID IT GET SO DIRTY IT COULD BE THAT NOTICEABLE,THE ONLY THING THAT IS TO COME IN CONTACT WITH IT IS EXHAUST AT 1300 DEGREES? IF IT WAS THAT DIRTY THEIR IS MORE THAN EXHAUST ENTERING THE EXHAUST SYSTEM, YOUR FRIEND MAY BE RIGHT,BUT FIRST LETS TRY THIS. DOES IT BLOW WHITE SMOKE WHEN RUNNING?DO U HAVE TO PUT WATER IN IT NOW AND THEN?,ALSO HAVE SOMEONE DO A COMPRESSION TEST ON THE ENGINE AND CHECK THE SPARK PLUGS AT-THE SAME TIME TO SEE HOW THEY ARE BURNNING(SOMEONE WHO KNOWS WHAT TO LOOK FOR) YOUR LOCAL AUTO SUPPLY STORE HAS THE SPECS FOR YOUR ENGINE (COMPRESSION FOR THE CYLINDERS)IN REPAIR MANUALS FOR YOUR TRUCK,$15-20.IF YOUR TRUCK WAS RUN AT A LONG TIME AND GOT OVER HEATED TO A CRITICAL POINT MANY THINGS MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED SO IN THIS CASE START WITH THE BIG ONE FIRST, THE MOTOR! IF IT CHECKS OUT OK DO THE PROCESS OF ELIMINATION. PLUGS WIRES NEW OX SENSERS JUST TO MENTION A. WELL HOPE I GAVE U SOME HELP!, GOOD LUCK TO U.

i just fixed a similar problem on my van there is a rubber elbow on the end of the pvc hose that connects to the valve cover you can only buy the elbow with the hose and it costs about 100 bucks but i guess they have had to replace a lot of these because the new one looks twice has strong you just have to check and see if its collapsed in on itself preventing air movement or leaking the shop will charge you 175 dollars to fix it plus the part but it only takes 20 minutes good luck

This is not a rich mans car so its normal. Your hearing the solinod that lets you take the car out of park after the brake is depressed so the car can't be put in gear unless the brake is on. If the noise bothers you the soliniod can be found and wrapped in insulation like a rich mans car them you can ride on feeling like a rich man too. ( the Beatles sang that a long time ago) and its still true today.
