Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

1995 Honda Civic (Not Hyundai) Problem - I am changing the head gasket. I am stuck on figuring out out to get the intake manifold off. I have all the bolts off except ONE. That one is at the bottom, center of the intake manifold. None of my amazing tools gets down there. Is there some tool I can sneak in there to get to the nut? I've tried getting at that nut from all directions. Is there some secret to removing the intake manifold on this Honda? Thanks

Have you tried from under the car? if not jack up the car support with jack stands and access the nut or bolt from under the car use a 3/8 swivel on the end of a 6 inch extension, I would first slide the socket over the bolt head before attaching the swivel, extension and socket wrench, then try loosening it, if the bolt head is not visible feel around for it and try to get the socket over the bolt head and attach swivel or extension on the socket wrench, they design these cars fairly tight good luck you'll need it.

Stalling and running rough - Hyundai Elantra - 2001-05

The Hyundai Elantra 2001 - 2005, 2.0 L engine is noted for this problem. It will lack power on acceleration and run rough and stall while driving. The engine light will come on for misfire codes. This problem is caused by a vaccum leak at the intake manifold gasket. The gasket is broken and needs to be replaced.
To replace the intake gasket with a new one, remove the 12m nuts holding the intake to the cylinder head. Then pry back( note: you do not have to completely remove the intake manifold here) the intake manifold to gain excess to remove the old gasket. Remove any excess gasket and clean with brake cleans the surface area of the intake. Install the new intake gasket on to the head and carefully install intake on to cylinder head studs. Tighten up nuts gradually and evenly to 15-20 ft.lbs.

How to replace head gasket

Replacing a head gasket is not a DIY job, unless the person has plenty of experience, knowledge, and the proper tools. The fact that a you would even ask, "how to replace 91 honda civic head gasket?", would indicate that you should not try to do that repair.

To replace a head gasket you must remove the intake manifold, exhaust manifold, valve train, and then the head. This is very involved and requires disconnecting lots of sensors and the ignition system. The head must then be checked to see if it is warped, or cracked, and repaired if necessary. You must then know how to put all this back together and torque all the bolts in the proper sequence. This takes training and skill which the average shade tree mechanic does not have.

If you are dead set on DIYing it, get a vehicle specific repair manual and dig in. Good luck China OBD2 car diagnostic tools wholesale on CareUCar

My 95 honda civic runs fine except when i put it in gear it stops running

This condition is usually caused by a bad intake manifold gasket. The failed gasket causes a vacuum leak which causes the engine to stall when placed under a load. This is a common problem. Some of them are pretty easy to change depending on the type of engine. There are a couple of ways to diagnose this problem such as a scan tool or a smoke machine. An alternative method is to use a hand held propane torch. Open up the fuel valve on the torch but, do not light it. with the engine running, point the tip of the torch towards the intake manifold. As you move the torch along the intake manifold listen to the engine for a change in RPM. If you notice a change then the gasket is leaking.
WARNING : This is a hazardous procedure that is best performed by a qualified technician. DO NOT use an acetylene torch for this procedure. Always wear safety glasses and keep away from moving engine parts.

Trying to figure out how to change my intake manifold gasket on a honda civic 97

  1. Take loose the intake tube from the intake and breather box.
  2. Remove the wiring harness from the intake mahifold there should be 4 injector plugs 3 plgs on the back of the manifold .
  3. You must take loose the fuel lines both the supply line on the left side of the fuel rail and the return line on the fuel pressure regulator
  4. Throtle cable must be taken off of the throtle body(and also dentent or shift cable if it is an automatic trans.)
  5. There is going to be a bracket on the underside of the manifold that more than likely will have to be gotten from the bottom should be a 14mm take loose from the manifold not the block
  6. There will be 8 to 10 12mm bolts that hold the intake manifold onto the head all of which are hard to get with the head still on the car but it can be done for a couple of them u will need a wrench and possibly even a swivel socket
  7. Remove the intake and pay attention to the hose that runs from the intake to the oil breather on the back of the motor its a bit tricky to get back on if u dnt have samll hands
  8. Make sure the gasket area of the intake and head are clean before installing the new gasket
  9. Reverse the instructions to replace the intake and make sure you torque the intake stud nuts to 16 ft/lbs
