How to service a hyundi van h-1


You need a workshop manual to do the job properly. There are different items to service depending on the mileage - for example, a small service would usually entail cleaning the air filter and checking the fluid levels - engine oil, radiator water, brake and clutch fluid etc. Then check the tyres for wear and make sure all lights work OK.
A medium service would be to clean the air filter, or fit new one depending on driving conditions - you need to change this filter more often in dusty conditions.
Also, drain engine oil and refill and change spark plugs. Check plug wiring for cracks or breaks and do all in minor (small) service.
A major service would include all the above, but you now need to change the oil filter, fuel filter and the air filter, if necessary (oil and fuel filters are necessary).
Also, remove wheels and check condition of brake linings, check tyres for wear caused by misalignment and check play on wheel bearings.
These checks are not specific to your vehicle, and is just an overall guide. Your workshop manual may specify other areas. If in doubt, see your dealer, they have all the experts on hand.

I need to know when I have to change my fuel filter. I have a 2008 Ford Focus SE Sedan.


I would recommend looking in your vehicals owners manual in the service and appearance care section each manufacturer recommends different mileages on what tasks to perform at certain times, in that section it will state what mileage to change the fuel filter on your particular model ford, I would say anywhere from 30,000 to 60,000 miles probably but make sure first by looking in your manual...

When does this vehicle have to have tune up


owners manual should say. but car should see a mechanic every 3-5 thousand miles. that mechanic should look at your mileage and find what the manufacturer recommends being done at that time. if you do your own maintenance and you think 30k is not enough miles on the transmission oil and it still "looks clean" and you reach 150k thinking the same thing. dont call the car bad names when you are walking. save fifty bucks to spend 3-5k later on a new tranny it just doesnt make sense. if you do your own maintenance look up for that specific mileage what needs to be done. just do it. it is not too much when u do it yourself. the dealer cost money. a tune up is really not supposed to be done all at once. tune ups where more from the 50s, 60s, 70s, nowadays we use recommended service intervals. 5k service - oil and filter 10 service- oil and filter, air filter, 15k service- oil and filter, fuel filter etc 20 oil filter air 25 oil filter coolant power steering oil 30 oil filter, fuel, trans
just a example it is way off. but just treat your car right. generally less than 300 a year and car will last forever.

Just had oil change done on my 2000 alero now my service engine soon light is on.I want to know what this means


It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.

I dont have a problem per say but i went to get an oil change and they told me i need Transmission service $159.95 Coolant flush $89.95 Fuel induction service $99.95 and fuel filter $89.95 totaling in...


They are scamming you... never go there again... Not likely that you need those services on your 2007 Elantra.

Parts estimate:
Transmission service ~ $6
Coollant flush: $20 ~ $30
Fuel injection service $20
Fuel Filter: $13

Service estimate:
Transmission service $40
Coolant Flush $30
Injector service $50
Fuel Filter replace $20

Total Parts & Service = $209
However, you probably don't need all that...
Does your car have any particular problems?
Please comment ... Thanks..
