P1159 indicates the variable intake valve does not reach its desired position. Expect to need to replace the intake plenum to resolve this.

* Fuel trim represents the amount of time the fuel injector opens for each intake cycle, expressed as a percentage above the expected amount of open time based on the data from the oxygen sensors, air flow sensor, and throttle position sensor.
The P1159 code means that the actuator cannot move the plates to the desired position. Either the actuator has failed or the plates have stuck in place. In the former case, repair is probably impossible. In the latter, the potential is there that you could disassemble the plenum and free up the components when you discover what it is that is keeping them from moving properly. In either case, the individual parts of the plenum aren't available separately, so if the issue requires a part replacement, you'll need to replace the entire plenum. thanks.

Check engine, battery, oil lights are on?


The Check Engine tells you that something is wrong about your ride. Get your ride check for error code and take necessary steps to resolve the issue. Also you can post the error codes so that we can help you to solve the issue. Battery light lit means that your battery needs to be charged or the electrolyte in the battery is low. Also it can be possible that the battery needs replacement. Last the oil light alerts you to change the engine oil. The engine oil prevents the engine components from wearing due to friction and suppresses the heat generation keeping the metal parts in proper working condition.

Flickering oil lights


Does the oil light flicker only when the engine is 'idling'? Or does it flicker ALL the time? Does it flicker when the engine is cold? Or, only after the engine warms up? Cause could be low oil pressure (check oil level & condition- should be full and clean), could be the oil pressure sending unit going bad, could be electrical (short) in the oil pressure sending unit wire harness, could be sludge buildup in the crankcase clogging the oil pickup tube to the oil pump, or it could be a clogged oil filter or the oil pump is going bad. If you have an after-market oil filter installed, they somtimes rob the system of pressure. There is a Technical Service Bulletin on this for Hyundai Vehicles. You should use the genuine Hyundai Oil filter.
Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there. OR, take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.). You could also go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.

2001 intrepid first problem oil light flickers when gas is accelerated. drove on freeway accelerated gas to catch speed and had to come up once came up it cut off on me and would not start back up. just...


the flickering oil light is a common problem with the 2.7 engine. as long as the oil level is full and oil is changed regularly, and the light just flickers and doesnt stay on , shouldnt be a problem, or get the oil sending unit changed. the second problem car stallings sounds like either cam or crank position sensor. does the engine light come on. if so the code should tell you.
