On my 02 elantra once the engine is warmed up it will not rev up when i push the gas what can cause this


It sounds like your engine is going into the 'limp home' mode, indicating there is a significant emissions equipment malfunction. Is the 'check engine' light on? You can take the car to a decent Auto Parts Store (O'reilly, Autozone,etc) and they will scan for the error code and reset the 'light' and get the car out of 'limp home' if the fault was intermittent. If the light comes back on, the malfunction has to be repaired. Literally dozens of minor malfunctions will cause this. The Federal Emissions Standard laws REQUIRE the 'limp home' mode when the malfunction will cause a significant increase in emissions. The problem could be a loose gas cap or loose vacuum line etc. MAJOR component failures are rare.

Malfunction indicator light on 2006 hyundai sante fe


Probably emissions related like an o2 sensor. The only way to find out will be to have the vehicle scannned by mechanic to extract a fault code. If yu get the code I will give more info but your mechanic will probably explain what it means anyway.

2003 Hyundai Elantra Malfunction Light is On


What you can do is go to Auto Zone and have the code read.They will do this for free.This is the best thing to do.Other wise your just wasting your money replacing things that could have nothing to do will the problem.The owners manual just gives you a vague idea of what it could be.Usually the light will have to be reset with a scan tool or after it passes the test for what ever was causing the problem the light will clear itself.Some times it can take a times before it clears.Hope this helps.Good luck.

VSC and Malfunction Indicator came on and stays on


When you say malfunction indicator , do you mean `check engine`` light.
These paired lights can indicate a change in engine air flow and fuel mixture. Try a fresh tank of premium fuel, but first a unscrew and re-screw the gas cap until it ratchets into place. The lights can be triggered by a loose gas cap, a fouled O2 sensor, and several other emission related problems including sticking throttle body components, etc.
This can sometimes be sprayed with carb cleaner inserted in the snorkle area of the air intake where teh snorkle meets the metal intake.

I have a 2004 Hyundai Elantra and my malfunction indicator light came on while I was driving with my heater on this morning. I don't have much money, what am I supposed to do? Is it expensive to fix? what...


It is difficult to say what is wrong from a malfunction light. it may not have anything to do with your heater as long as your heater is working ok.

the malfuntion light maybe for anything and so impossible to judge without more information as to the cost.

i would recommend asking a dealership if they can tell you what is wrong just to ensure it is not something to do with the breaks or airbags etc.
