Hi ! I Have a Hyundai Elantra 2001 VE... the car has been in the yard for a year without driving, their 100 000 km on it and its manuel. When im driving, sometimes the engine turns off... and i had a lot of difficulty to start it back ...but once the engine goes back on its okay for a day.. so we changed the CrankSensor, after a day the engine light went on, maybe 15 minutes after, again the engine went off... so we scanned it and it says that its the speedsensor... he check the trottle body to see if it was dirty and it was.. so he cleaned it.. and he turn off the check engine light... for all the weekend it was okay, then the check engine light got on... speedsensor again... ive been told that a speedsensor cannot turn off my engine.. ?

That is right a speed sensor can't kill the motor but i would look more to low oil in the pan or a bad oil pump.

2007 Hyundai elantra trunk button not working and power locks and interior lights don't work

It's a surprise that an Elantra would last 10 years. Time to get this issue to a mechanic, and trade the car in. Look for a car that will last without issues and problems. I owned a new Hyundai Elantra for four years, and paid for it twice from so many electrical, steering, and suspension issues. I now drive an Infinity for the past 7 years, drove it for 160,000 miles, and not a single repair bill. Just maintenance. Other cars you may consider are Volkswagen, Volvo, Lexus, and Audi.

You need to change spark plugs every 3 years,

The main reason for converter failure is a rich fuel
mixture & spark plugs,oxygen sensors,air filters,
vacuum leaks & more drive fuel trim rich

2007 Hyundai Automatic all of a suddent does not engage in Reverse and only drives in 1st gear will not shift up to second.

You're describing a powertrain problem. If you're a 2nd owner & this vehicle has less than 60,000 miles (96,000 km), it's still under warranty. If you are the original owner and the vehicle has less than 100,000 miles (160,000 km), it's still under warranty.

Need info on timing belt 1998 hyundai elantra

The timing belt is normally replaced at 100,000 km (approx. 60,000 mi), but must be checked for wear and tear starting 75,000 km(approx. 45,000 mi) along with a major tune-up.

The switch near the shifter is the ECT (transmission control) which selects NORMal driving mode, and PoWeR mode. It is the battle between economy (NORM) and driving performance (PWR). As tested, the PWR mode delays your A/T upshift to a higher RPM. This utilizes your engine's higher revs, but really cuts into fuel economy.

Hope this helps.

Motor shaking ( Elantra 2002,115,000 km)

Could be that plug wire, pull that plug wire and see if there is a spark while cranking the engine( you will need an asisstant). 2nd thing, could be a fowled or bad fuel injector.
