Question about 2004 Hyundai Tucson

1 Answer

I currently own a Hyundai Tuscon 2.7 V6, which is averaging 14MPG and does not seem to waver from this consumption, regardless of driving conditions; in addition, the car keeps stalling, even when running at speed, it just cuts out and proving extremely difficult to set off in reverse, again the majority of the time just cutting out. What do you think is wrong with the vehicle?

What is the solution to excessive fuel consumption of my 1999 Toyota Corolla

A serviced and correctly timed engine should return decent fuel consumption if driven properly regardless of age. Obviously that return depends on certain conditions. A gentle right foot avoiding harsh acceleration and braking always helps as does where you are driving, busy stop start town traffic and frequent short journeys will reduce efficiency.
So, things to check:
  • Oil and filter change
  • Air filter
  • Tyres at correct pressure
  • Spark plugs, leads, coils condition
  • Fuel leaks
You will never get near the advertised consumption figures as these are recorded under ideal test conditions and I have never encountered them whilst I am driving, but you should be within 10-20% of that figure if driven conservatively.

Toyota corolla specifications

fuel consumption of engines is a question very often asked and seldom answered adequately. There are so many variables that affect consumption so I will give a few
tyre pressure and size
ambient temperature
condition of engine
load carried
number of passengers
weight of driver
dragging brakes
extras on vehicle (roof rack)
wheel alignment
tread pattern of tyres
driving habits
driving conditions (town-country)
driving conditions ( hilly --flat)
road surfaces
slipping into neutral at lights
the list goes on and on so be guided by the expected average of the manufacturer of between 8 litres to 10litres per100kilometers travelled

Oil consumption for gtt

Oil consumption for any vehicle can depend on a number of factors including engine construction, mileage, type of driving so it's a bit difficult to place an exact figure on it.
In the case of the 3SGTE in the Caldina GTT consumption seems to be average/normal, which equates to a drop of about 1/4~1/3 the distance between full and empty on the dipstick every 5,000km (3,000mi). And that's been my average for all 3SGTE's I've had.
If you have a high mileage (>200,000Km/120,000mi) unit, or drive enthusiastically your consumption may increase, but at that age brittle seals are more likely to be responsible for increased oil loss.

What is the normal fuel consumption rate of a 2001 v4 Toyota highlander ?

It is impossible to say because of all the variables involved=== Speed --terrain---climate conditions--load --city, country driving--drivers driving habits ( heavy footed , always on the brakes) road conditions --tyre size--tyre pressures--- current draw from the alternator ( extra radio gear )-- roof loads . basically if you get 10 litres / 100 klms it will be average . There are some good auto magazines that include fuel consumption when they discuss different vehicles.

I have a Hyundai Accent 2002, when check engine ligth, i go tu service center. The code returned for scan is P1401. please, how fix this code ?

P1401 - DMTL Malfunction
The diagnosis module comprises an electromechanically driven pump together with a change-over valve and heater. The engine management system measures the pump's electrical current consumption while pumping air into the canister and fuel tank to check the system's leakage.
If the electrical current consumption is over the threshold value specified before in the memory, this means that there is a tank-system leak.

(1) DM-TL monitoring operation starts only after all the conditions below are met.
A. Vehicle soaking over 4 hours and 30 minutes.
B. Engine coolant temperature over 2.3°C (36.14°F) when starting.
C. Ambient temperature between 1.5°C (34.7°F) and 40.5°C (104.9°F).
D. 6.4l or more gasoline in the fuel tank.
E. Over 20 minutes driving after starting.
F. During Air Bag is not working.

(2) And also you can check the DM-TL operation with simulation mode of HI-SCAN.

My 156 sportswagon is burning fuel badly i put 2 gallons in and only got 31 miles for this i can hear an air leak coming from top of engine would this be a likley cause for such poor fuel consumption it's...

an air leak would weaken the mix of fuel to air so giving you better fuel efficiency but a poor power output.
was my last answer not to your liking, re **** fuel consumption on all fiat/alpha cars.but it is true, ask any owner........14.7 average mpg.......£205 road tax.....(tax it for a year and quadruple its value...)
