Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent
I have a 2001 Hyundai Accent GL, 4 door, with around 83,000 miles on it and I leased the car new and bought it when lease expired......just had an oil change done, was told my rear brake shoes needed replaced and that also needed a power steering fluid flush.....when I drove away from the oil change, my car started to idle too high - at stop lights, stop signs, etc., and it was hard to stop - wants to keep going even when applying brakes...scared me so I brought it back to oil change shop and when I put it into park, continued to idle high in front of service personnel....once it stopped idling high in front of service personnel, it did not idle high again at the establishment..only happened again on my way home and upon entering my garage, once in park, it was at a high idle until I turned motor off........this happened again today as well....service station said they needed to hook up up car motor to their equipment some day this week to seek problem and answers???
I think I would seek a different opinion from a shop that has a good reputation. This sounds like 'make-work' to me. We have several shops in our area that are known for doing the same thing! Service costs are high enough with trying to gouge someone. Good luck!
