Hyundai tuscon: petrol. after about a 100 miles the revs start to limit to 4000 and reduce to about 3200. This makes driving tricky especially when overtaking. changed timing belt,pully,fuel filter,c


I'm not familiar with your Hyundai, but the symptoms could be several things, I am thinking 1 in particular. Change your coil pack. I think you have the single coil pack that runs all cylinders. They can break down inside and not create the 20,000 volts or so that you need consistently. When you get to running temps, the coil gets extremely hot and can start breaking down and losing it's power.

I have a 1997 lumina with 3.1L. the problem started with loss of power under load and p0300 code. check coils and vacuum leaks both OK.change spark plugs and wires.[same problem] check compression OK.


Since you changed the sensor we will assume it is working. When you disconnect it you put the computer in limp mode which stops it from using sensor values. If code 300 is the only code we will assume the coolant temp sensor and others are ok.
I would check fuel pressure with a gauge next.

Ok so I changed out the throttle position sensor and its made NO difference~my truck is still Idling rough and dieing need some help here please~~


I guess I will start with asking why you changed the crank sensor and the TPS ?
Usually when the engine is stalling at stop signs the problem is a dirty throttle body or a problem with the idle air control valve.
If the check engine light is on it should have a code unless the PCM is failing. I would try another scanner next to make sure the computer does not have any trouble codes.

This is one of them faults thats very difficult to diagnose but if what you say is right then i would change the drivers door lock ,they are repairable as they are a sealed unit on these cars,but i did have a similar problem with a petrol version on one of the first models of these cars about a 99 or 2000 as i remember and it would play up just like this ,open and close the door lock with key three times and it started.then be ok for a week then not start again so i had the key man down with his programmer and he checked it out for the key remote and found nothing wrong with either the master or the spare key and he said try changing the door lock because he had this problem before with other ford focus models and mondeos .Change the lock and it was ok for a week but the owner sold the car for a new car on the scrappage scheme so i never did find out it was ok after that

Ive changed my subaru impreza 2002 wrx engine but it will not start it turns over ok and its getting fuel it will fire once and thats it


You need to remap the ECU to have the new engine codes, otherwise the computer will not let the engine run as the immobiliser/security system thinks that the car is getting stolen.Same thing with the key codes for the ignition.
