Idle speed too low


Sounds like you may have an issue with your idle air control or your mass air flow sensor. The IAC can cause a vehicle to stall when up to temperature, especially when warmer outside.I would clean or replace that for starters.

Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down


Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

My 2001 Hundai Sonata (4 cyl) either idles very roughly or dies when idling or when I am stopped at a stoplight or stop sign or in traffic. The only way to keep the car from dying seems for me to keep one...


OK!.... it's got more than 185.xxx miles.. right? (out of warranty). FIRST place to check:
1. TPS - Throttle Position Sensor - it's a potentiometer (variable resistor) which sends voltage signals to the ECU (Engine Control Unit). If it is malfunctioning (defective), it can cause the drivability issue you describe. However, this is NOT ALWAYS the case since you mentioned the vehicle has more than 185,xxx miles.
2. ECU (Engine Control Unit)
3. Vacuum Leaks
4. Injectors (leaking/clogged)
5. Deffective MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor)
6. ... want me to continue?... best advice, have it properly diagnosed at an authorized Hyundai Service Department --- this way you'll know EXACTLY what the CAUSE is, and the parts/labor required to fix it!

Over heating engine, can drive for 1 mile without damage?


Any engine, when cold, takes at least 3 miles before reaching operating temperature.. After reaching operating temp it still takes a mile or 8(depending on your vehicle) before "over" temperatures are reached. Therefore if needed, a vehicle can be driven several miles without any coolant/water at all before overheating and causing damage, if started from from cold.

1992 Lincoln Continental engine/gasket problem


These vehicles are historic for head gasket problems. Ford had issued a recall because there where so many problems. The new head gasket is a different material than the original. Cost to replace varies by shop and geographic location, plan on around 1100 bucks.
