Question about 2006 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

Check oil light stays on but goes off when i give it some gas

Exact same problem. When we told them about your post, they thought we were nuts. Took the Sonata to the dealer and sure enough, Jiffy Lube did not put the parts back in. Called them and now says the dealer is nuts. But after a few minutes, Jiffy Lube called back and said they found the parts in the bottom of the bay. Please be careful about taking the Sonata's to non dealers. We learned our lesson. Still waiting for the thing to be fix, and hope there was not other damage done.

SOURCE: Poor Fuel Mileage 2006 Hyundai Sonata 2.4 motor

I don't know from where you bought the car but do you feel certain that typical causes such as fouled plugs or clogged air filters are not at fault?
Most dealers, even the shlocks don't normally skimp on the simple stuff but who knows about a private source?
That does seem low, especially the city numbers. I don't think Hyundai is any leader in gas mileage but they are better than what you are getting.

SOURCE: Oil change intervals

I personally hold synthetic oil as the high-standard of lubricants. However quality varies. Without completely flushing I would not recommend use in a high mile engine.
"ordinary oils" are far better than they used to be, but begin to break down substantially after about 2500 miles. No dealer wants your car to last beyond the warranty period. They sell new cars! Changing your oil & filter at 3000 miles is reasonable, and not too often. If you are using quite a bit of oil, take care of all external leaks you can. It will help a lot. You can't extend change intervals because of oil consumption. The filter must be serviced regularly or you will cause more internal wear.

SOURCE: not ready codes

There is a long drive cycle for this issue and it is a tsb so it should be free. Have them call hyundai tech line to get the drive cycle. Its so long i could never type it out for you. Its pages but it works. If the dealer gives you any problems call hyundai consumer affairs and they will take care of it for you. the number is in your owners manual or ask a sales person. Hyundai cansumer affairs will do anything to make you happy. Hope this helps good luck.

SOURCE: 2000 Hyundai Sonata jerking and causing poor performance

I am having a very similar problem with my '01 Sonata. I had it in to the dealer and they said the same thing. It seems to be the input speed sensor. Good to hear someone else diagnose it the same way, I just had my timing belt and serpentine belt changed, this problem never occured before replacing them. So I was worried that there was a problem with the installation. Thanks.

SOURCE: 2003 Tiburon GT-V6, Air Bag light has come on and

Sorry. The airbag system is propietary to Hyundai manufacturing. The Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's) in the Supplememental Restraint System (SRS) are unique to Hyundai - unavoidable unless you can find a High-Scan Pro scanned to pull the code and get the wiring diagrams to solve this. Solution is the Dealer - pay the diag fee and they will give you an estimate of repairs (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc)... I know this isn't what you want to hear.. but it's Hyundai's system and only Hyundai has the solution.

Well it could be the sending unit for the gauge.
But odds are the oil pump or engine bearings are worn out.
As the engine warms up, the metal spaces expand and the oil gets thinner. The oil pressure drops some under normal conditions, but not more than 10 or 15psi. Normal idle pressure with the engine warmed up is probably 25psi.
You could check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to make sure its not the sending unit.
Once the oil pressure starts staying below 20psi for long periods you'll start hearing noises.

The Message Center on my 2002 GMC Yukon XL is giving false readings. It is telling me to check the oil and check the fluid level. I have had both of those items checked and they are fine, the oil pressue...

the oil level sensor is located in the oil pan. There should be a yellowish/brownish plastic looking large diameter nut sticking out the side of the pan with some wires going to it. Unplug those wires and see if the message goes away. If it does then don't worry about it until you have the means to do so. Just monitor the oil level ever thousand miles or so.

The senors are pretty reasonable priced and available form the dealer. They are threaded into the pan and a medium sized crescent wrech is all you really need to remove and install.

Oil light stays on when I start engine but goes off after a while

When you give it gas or idle for awhile the pressure will build up to normal and turn off the light.

If you are consuming oil and coolant you should check your head gasket also.

2005 toyota corolla light comes on then goes off for a few days e

Did you have engine trouble codes checked? Parts stores will do it for free. Ask them to explain what the codes mean, and what they recommend. If you have any questions, post them here with the code #'s. The engine light can come on if the gas cap is loose, but after securing, should go off. How is the cars performance? Running ok, just engine light coming on?

Use of recommended oil viscosity (5w-20)

I ask that same question about my 2007 and was told that the main reason for the lite oil weight was to give better gas mileage. Still though I never changed because I got over tinkering with the manufactures specs. in my hot rod days. Stay with the 5-20W.
