Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent

Hyundai Accent 2001 making a loud-fan-like noise

My car, which has a little under 85,000 miles and recently inspected (first week of June), has begun to have a few problems this past week:

1. The power steering was beginning to make noises (which I fixed temporarily with power steering fluid)- the sound comes back every few days, and is fixed again with the fluid, so I am pretty sure that is a leak somewhere...

2. A few days ago I noticed my car was sounding a little louder than usual, so I lifted the hood while the car was running, and there was a loud-fan like noise coming from (I think), the left side of the car.

*Sometimes the belt squeals for a few seconds when I start up the car.

I am driving a few hours home in a few days. Could someone help me figure out what the problem may be, and if it is safe to drive home? Thanks!

POWER STEERING PROBLEM - CONTAINER CONSIST TWO LEVELS. SHOULD THE BOTTOM PART BE THE NORMAL COLOUR OF THE FLUID AND THE TOP PART APPEARS TO BE DIFFERENT THEN REMOVE THE CONTAINER AND CLEAN PROPERLY AS THERE IS A SIEVE BETWEEN THE TWO LEVELS WHICH IS BLOCKED. DRAIN OIL FROM POWER STEERING SYSTEM AND REFILL WITH NEW OIL.
iF BELTS WERE RECENTLY CHANGED THEN THE PROBLEM MIGHT LY BY ONE OF THE PULLEYS THAT IS WARN. MEANING THAT THE BELT INBEDDS TO DEEP INTO THE PULLEY AND CAUSE THE BELT TO SQUEL. SHOULD YOU POUR WATER ONTO THE BELT WHILE IT IS SQUELING IT PROVES THAT IT IS EITHER THE BELT THAT NEEDS REPLACELMENT OR ONE OF THE PULLEY PROVIDING THE BELT TENSION IS INSPECT

2001 Hyundai accent - runs OK for about 40 miles on interstate. Then car seems to drop a cylinder and runs very rough. The check engine light does NOT come come on and there is no error code


Hi.

1. make sure you have the correct type spark plugs installed.
2. no vacuum leaks - lose air pipes
3. Check the Oxygen sensor "upstream" - remove it and see if it is sooted (black) then replace if needed.

hope this helps

I have a 2001 hyundai accent, sometimes it loses power whilst driving and recently it just turned off whilst driving


Sounds like a wiring issue from the body to the fuel pump in the gas tank or the fuel pump itself but my guess is a wiring problem there or close to the ECM (computer) inspect the wiring and harness for lumps in the wire or broken wires or corroded connections.
try running a new ground wire from the battery to the Engine and the body of the car - a simple task . then run a ground wire directly to the gas tank but dont make any holes in the tank or weld upon it lol.

ANY NOISE FROM A PULLEY MEANS A BEARING IS GOING OUT. IT WILL BREAK AND COST ALOT MORE TO FIX AND MIGHT EVEN CAUSE YOU TO LOSE STEERING. IF IT IS A WHEEL BEARING IT COULD LOCK A WHEEL UP ARE EVEN FALL OFF. PLEASE GET THIS CHECKED

MY HEATER IS NOT WORKING AND IS MAKING A LOUD NOISE


If you turn on any/all heating/cooling control and it makes a loud noise, it is probably your blower fan; they are normally located under the dash (some vehicles are easier than others).

If it's just your heat though, not a/c as well, then someone else will have to chime in...

Goodluck!

Hyundai Accent air conditioner blower noise


Hello kandrika_mur

I might have a solution for you issue. First I would like to give you a few explanations.

1. If you live in an area with squirrels or chipmunks they could be the reason for the noise. If you hear a loud humming noise there is a simple fix. Just open the fan housing under the clove box and unscrew the housing and remove the acorns, Sticks, leaves or anything else that is stuck in the fan or its housing. These animals are notorious for hiding things in vehicles especially in the beginning of the colder season. I have to do this in October every year.

2. The bearings in the fan motor may need grease or even replacing. If bearings are burnt out they can also make noise.

I hope this helps.
