Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent

2 Answers

My Hyundai Accent GL is beginning to idle to high, when driving

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!

My 2001 hyundai accent is using up too much gas need help


city driving is 22-24 mpg depending on whether manual or automatic.

Driving style plays a big part in fuel economy. Anticipate braking, in fact try not to use your brakes. Accelerate like there is an egg under your right foot and you don't want to crack it. Also, it is better to keep the tank full as half a tank has lot of room for evaporation of gasoline.

Lifter problem in 2001 Hyundai accent GL


The noise you hear could very well be a lifter. But that is not what is causing your engine light to come on. The engine light problem can be diagnosed by having the codes read. You can have this done for free at most national parts chains such as Advance or Auto Zone. Good luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

02 accent sounds like it wants to turn off while driving


trust the guy who said the other guy was full of it, I doubt it is the timing belt at 72,000 miles, more likely the idle speed control motor needs to be cleaned or a you have a defective MAP or MAF sensor...

2001 Hyundai Accent - Automatic Trasmission fluid


It is a proprietary Hyundai transmission fluid. Don't use anything other than the Hyundai stuff. This fluid has superb lubrication properties, but it breaks down much quicker than the specified 30,000 mile fluid change intervals. I highly recommend having both the fluid and filter changed once a year or once every 15,000 to 20,000 miles.
