Question about 2008 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

I have a 2008 hyundai accent hatchback. 5 speed tranny with 150k original miles, I'm the original owner. Up until recently I've had no issues. Now I have a moderate shaking during idle, and laggy acceleration up until I hit highway speeds (65+mph) based on what I hear when I accelerate it sounds like the engine isn't getting enough fuel. But I'm no expert so pose the problem here

Sounds like itr is not getting enough fuel. Try or check the fuel filter for dirt or water, and also check the fuel pump pressure to see if it meet factory specs.
Good Luck Jerry

Check engine light on and car is shaking


The vehicle may still be under warranty. If you are the original owner and the vehicle has less than 10,000 miles, it's STILL under warranty. If you are the 2nd owner, and has less than 60,000 miles, it's still under warranty. Take it in for warranty repair.

Just purchased my 2nd used Hyundai accent gs- 57,000 miles. I have been researching the cars problem of: 75 mph; in 5th gear, the rpm's are over 4000; making the engine noise almost unbearable! So what...


any "adjustments" you carry out to reduce engine speed at any given road speed will affect the speedo/odometer reading,BUT,the simplest/cheapest way of reducing revs is to fit bigger wheels/ tyres.say fit 15" instead of 13"with the same profile tyres.this will reduce your revs by about 500 @75mph.but the speedo will read 70mph.also acceleration times will be considerably reduced.and put an extra strain on the clutch/engine.
alternatively,swop the whole drivetrain to diesel,75mph=3500.

When should I change my timing belt on my 2007 hyundai accent gs hatchback? it has 63000 miles on it.


you wont need to change it until at least 100,000 miles. Typically that will last the life of the car. But alot of people, including myself, wait until it breaks to replace it. It is about $1000 to replace because the engine has to be partially disassembled.

Get it scanned. You should be under warrantee. Otherwise most auto parts stores will do this. Could be as simple as a loose gas cap.

Tires for 2001 Hyundai Accent R14


My 2002 Accent has the original rims which are R14 rather than the R13 specified in the owner's manual. Yet my speedometer is factory calibrated and gives the correct speed readings at all speeds (compared to my GPS navigator's indicated speed). I suspect that R14 is correct for your car and that Hyundai forgot to update the owner's manual.
