    probably the air in the fuel system, ive actually had a problem recently with the gas pump stopping every few seconds, and have been told its likely because of air in the tank.

Many things could have caused that. It could be burping air in your fuel system, fuel pump missing a beat, number of sending units. Sorry, This kind of problem is of the type where you have to let it develop. It needs to be either consistant it's too expensive to hunt and peck. Perhaps it left a fault code you can go by to see what componant got distracted. Use the on board diagnostics.

Go get the code read. Or go buy a CAN capable scanner ( under 100 bucks ). Why guess. The light comes on in order to not waste time diagnosing. The code will stay in memory for about a month depending on how many cold starts you do. If the code is not seen again the memory will clear after about 40 cold starts

    There is not such thing as air in the tank being a problem. What happens is the pump looses e its ability to just **** fuel. It statrs sucking air also. This is a sign that one day you will be stranded. You need to get this properly diagnosed. But if this was the problem in your case you wopuld have a lean code stored in the computer. Its possibe your problem is something totally different like a crank sensor or so.

1/4 times I turn on my car there is a loud vibration noise that lasts 10 seconds I have only noticed it when starting a warm engine. Any ideas what this could be?


We need more info, Loran. Is the noise metallic as in sheet metal loose or more like a heavy rumble. Bear in mind the car is 10 years old and you don't give the mileage a heavy knocking could be a worn engine mount allowing the exhaust to contact another part. This maybe worse when hot because the increase in temp softens the mounts a bit. Does it vary with revs or is it part of the initial fire up, ie does it stop when the engine idles smoothly or does the engine not idle smoothly? Is it in need of servicing and the idle is so rough that its causing other things to vibrate.
Have someone start up for you while you have your head under the hood and see what you can to do to assess the noise. If its an auto make sure its in park and the brake is on before they rev up.
Next, look underneath to see if anything is hanging off like the exhaust. It could be as simple as a hanger bracket.
More info reqd here I'm afraid.
Potential worst case is the flywheel is coming loose but I wouldn't expect temperature to change that.
Do some homework and get back to us.

I have an 01 hyundai accent gl 4 door 1.6 dohc. timing belt broke at 106,000 miles and bent some valves. got an engine out of an 03 accent 1.6 same everything with 35,000 miles. pulled old and put in 03...


The 2 components that I would suspect would be the Coil pack and the Cam sensor.
I had a similar issue on a Sorento. Intermittent miss on one of the cylinders. The Coil pack was bad. When I replaced it, there was a burnt smell to the bad one. It sounds like things were a bit bumped around with this engine as the O2 sensor was bent. The Coil packs are very fragile.
Hope this helps. God Bless
