Question about Hyundai Tucson
On Tuesday on my way home from work, engine light stayed on. Prior to that it was making a humming sound didn't think of anything, until I was driving up a hill and the vehicle was making a tapping sound with little power going up hill. I called my dealer I was told that if the engine light isn't flashing then i'm still good, it could just be that I didn't close the gas tank cover good, Don't worry vehicle is still driveable. If its flashing light then that's when we worry and don't drive vehicle. I was told to bring my vehicle in on Thursday they can't accommodate me on Wednesday because they're booked. The light was still on, on Wednesday. I brought vehicle in Thursday as they told me to, I was given a diagnostic report The machine picked up Code P2006 Intake Manifold runner control stuck close (Bank1) P200A intake runner performance (Bank1), found short runner valve has internal open circuit and causing it to stay stuck open, Recommend to replace intake manifold with Runner Valve. It's a second hand vehicle, I purchased it in June 2012, The 3 year factory warranty expired Jan. 2014, to bad it this problem didn't occur in 2013. Now the repair will cost me $1500.00. I've purchased extended warranty when I Bought the vehicle, but unfortunately I was told it's not covered by them. Is this normal that this part on my 2011 Tucson needs to be replaced?
Stay away from dealers most cant fix a bicycle--warrantys usually hav to be fought in court at this point-----and the flashn lite theory...wow---u need a scan that uses factory gear specific for the vehicle--certain shops havit--it displays values of the components in digital network and wil pinpoint which is bad--dont replace parts til u kno for sure

Your vehicle should be covered if you purchased extended warranty when you bought the vehicle, if you have Consumer affair in the country that you live in then check with them as a lot of these Insurance Companies will tell you that it is not covered by them so they don't have to pay the money out if they think you will just go away and not hassle them. Consumer affairs will tell you whether your Insurance Company has to pay for the damage or not and will also contact the Insurance company and make them pay the money out to have your car repaired,

I'm assuming you have the 4.2l v6. If this is the case, there are two intake runners per cylinder, one long (torque) one short (horsepower), default setting for these would be long runners or closed.
There is a valve so to speak inside the intake manifold operated by a motor that switches to the short runners when the RPM"s reach a preset point. However there has been a problem with this design, not only with the 4.2's, but the 2.5's and 3.8's and every other motor that uses this design.
The motors go bad, or the valve gets carboned up and no longer moves. If you have a 4.2 start there, if not I'm not sure what is wrong.
Good luck and hope this helps

P2008 means intake runner control circut/open bank 1. The intake mainfold running solenoid must be checked and eventually replaced. The solenoid is located off the vacuum hose and operates the intake runner shaft throught the mainfold.

There are some Electric Vacuum solenoids on top of the motor. They have vacuum lines running down to some manifold vacuum pods. When the solenoids stick, the vacuum does not shut off and the pods remain open.
You can check for electric continuity on the solenoids. If they check out, the internal parts may be stuck. You can disconnect the vacuum lines and see if one still has pressure when the engine is off. The solenoid that runs to it is probably open. You may be able to work some WD40 into the solenoids and free them up. If the solenoids have no continuity, they are bad but remeber to check them with and without vacuum.
Remember to reset the computer by disconnecting the NEG cable 10 minutes or the defect will falsely report 25 -35 Startups with the wrong info.
