Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent
Help! my 2001 Hyundai Accent will idle but has no power when in reverse or drive. It almost feels like the emergency brake is on. When in gear, it simply crawls and sounds very rough. I drove it four days ago for one hour and everything was normal until I drove it home and I noticed noise coming from the back end. I thought it was the muffler until I tried driving it today. what is wrong? Do you think it is a transmission problem? Last week my car would not start after driving. I stopped twice and it was okay, but on the way home I stopped for gas and the engine would not even turn over. I had to buy a new battery, could the starting problem be related or not? the car has 120,000 miles.

Sounds like you may have gotten some debris in your exhaust pipe or something was clogging your muffler. Maybe the innerds of you Catalytic Coverter went and got stuck or the innerds of your muffler gave out. That would be the only few things I could think of to cause something like that.

SOURCE: 2002 Hyundai Accent lost power
Just the change dipstick and the oil in the car and also check if there is any debris in the car as the broken dipstick which may cause damaged to the engine ,You found the problem it was the oil burn which is causing the loss of power ,and also clean the alternator ..

ok when the check engine light comes on that usually indicates a engine malfunction...what you can do is go to your local autozone and they can do an OBDII test for free..my bet says it is the cam or crank sensor.. DO NOT SHUT THE CAR OFF AT AUTOZONE..LOL

could possibly be vacuum assist check valve is defective and you are feeling the engine vacuum pulsations. Easy ck, Inexpensive, easy replace. Good luck. If you will, let me know. please

Sounds like it might be either the fuel filter or the fuel pump, cause if you ran the tank down, you probably had sludge in the bottom of the tank that you sucked into the engine, you can try using a fuel system cleaner, you may have sucked sludge into the injectors running it, Zmax sells a fuel system cleaner, or there is one called RUN RIGHT, I would try putting some of that in letting it sit a few min then after it sat a few to soak in and break down the sludge, then start the car up, kick your idle up to around 1500 RPM do not go higher then that cause you will damage the engine, try that and see if that works for you, if not then I is probably the fuel pump or filter.
hope this helps.
