Testimonial: "not that simple..i leave the car running during refuel and by $10 worth it will start to stall then die. If I get the gas cap back on before it completely dies it will smooth out and be fine. Gas cap bad?"

    water in the gas,gas now contains ethanol,ethanol is water,your tank collects condensation from water,it fills your tank,car runs like cr ap,USE DRYGAS,at every fillup for 3 or 4 times

My 2004 Hyundai Sonata will not turn over after being outside all day at work (it is cold). The car tries to start, but it sounds sluggish. I tried jumping the car, but it didn't help at all. I have had...


it may be a weak battery if when jumping it the engine didnt spin fast,but i belive the first time the battery was weak and trying to start may have flooded it with the cold weather, have the battery tested and replace it if not good then try holding the gas pedal down to floor like the older cars and hold it until motor gets going then slowly let up as rpms rise, you may have to crank a while.

2009 Hyundai Sonata-clicking noise at brake pedal,brakes applied


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.

Hyundai Sonata 2000, sluggish to start only after fueling


Purge control solenoid valve is suspect. After refueling, the charcoal canister can become 'saturated' and this valve (if stuck OPEN) sucks air through it and can draw raw fuel into the intake manifold creating a 'flood' condition.

Where do you feel the vibration? if you feel it where you sit it is coming from back which is usually rear brakes. If you feel the vibration in your feet and hands it is coming from the front which could be your ABS or front brakes.
