Question about Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Accent 4d Automatic 1.6lL (about 67-68k miles) I was driving down the road, and as I turned into a parking lot it just quit/stalled/died. I first put the car in neutral and tried to restart while rolling, cranks but will not catch/start. Stop the car, put it in park, turn the key... same result cranks but will not start. Push the car into into a parking spot and let it sit/cool down for about while I wait for my father and uncle to show up. Try again same thing. We pull the wire on a plug, and see that I am getting no spark while cranking. Any Ideas of where I should start, it would be appreciated. (fuses/relays to check, things to bang w/ hammer etc...) The is an Advance Auto Parts store in the plaza where my car is sitting till tomorrow, don't know if they will have any parts or tools that may help. I will be bringing a basic tool kit and a multimeter with me. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. PS. I will have the car paid off in three more payments... so that could have something to do with it....

Will it restart? Does it crank but not fire? Does it do anything? Check the timing belt to see if its broken. Without a Distributor rotor you will have to do a compression test to check this.

    will not start, cranks but does not fire, pulled a plug wire and i am getting no spark.

    Check your timing belt. If the timing belt is broken you will not have spark. If you have a coil pack you can test for this by doing a compression test. The cylinder with open valves will not have any compression no matter how long you crank. It maybe possible you can pull the top cover off or pull the valve cover off so you can see the timing belt. You will not get any fire to the plugs if the timing belt is broken.

2004 After about a mile of road travel, why does transmission begin to slip?


Usually a transmission slipping isn't due to the drive shaft, but the transmission itself. I know this might sound a like a crazy question, but have you checked the transmission fluid levels, could be a leak, if not full would cause slippage.

2001 hyundai accent overdrive button


The overdrive will only come into use when the transmission module reads the correct revs/ road speed ratio. Switch if off for heavy city traffic driving to improve economy when it moves up and down all the time. No it will not harm the transmission otherwise.

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.

I've only owned the vehicle for 2 days (2004 Hyundai Accent). Driving down the road the road the fuel gauge goes from full to empty...then after 30 mins back to full again. Can you help? Thanks,


Wandering fuel guages are associated with a bad fuel pump/sending unit in the tank. Probably one of the reasons it was for sale. will be about $200 for unit and $100 to change. Check your warranty for coverage.
Good luck

MECHANIC CHANGED BATTERY ON MY 2004 CAMERY 4D


Look in your owners manual. It will have a code system to turn this feature back on. It will be a bunch of silly things but it is the only way the to tell the computer in your car what you want it to do.

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.

It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.
