Question about 2000 Hyundai Elantra

2 Answers

I bought a 2000 Hyundai Elantra wagon 2 months ago. I was very happy with her for the first few weeks. Then she began to buck kind of, so I took the car to a transmission place where they told me I need a new transmission. Then I called Hyundai, and they told me to take the car out of overdrive. Since I did that everything has been fine...knocking on wood...! About a week ago I drove about 50 miles from home on the highway, and it began to smoke, white smoke under the hood. I pulled over to let it cool down, and drove slowly. I have noticed it doesn't act like this until I am driving for a while, or fast like on a highway. I also noticed a small leak on the right side right next to the motor. I am not sure what it is, but it is kind of brown in color and doesn't really smell like anything. Today my dash light went on "brake". I am so confused, are my brakes the problem, or is it my engine, or maybe my tranny? Does any of this sound like anything anyone has ever heard of before? All answers are really appreciated. Suzy Stellar

If your brake light is coming on while driving it is because your low on brake fluid that light doubles as a warning for low brake fluid so check it out...

I bought my 2007 Hyundai Elantral about 8 months ago and have loved it! But on my way to work this morning, mine did the same exact thing that you have described here. I assumed it was a fuse (in denial about the fact that it could be something much more serious). Have you found anymore out regarding this problem since you posted this?

sounds like a bad fuel sending unit in the tank, however , i find it hard to belive that the dealer wont take care of that, unless you bought it as is with no warranty, and no work promised
