1 Answer

Just purchased my 2nd used Hyundai accent gs- 57,000 miles. I have been researching the cars problem of: 75 mph; in 5th gear, the rpm's are over 4000; making the engine noise almost unbearable! So what adjustments or fixes can be made to the tranny/gear box/etc.??? My 96 accent never made that much noise doing 75 or over!!!

Any "adjustments" you carry out to reduce engine speed at any given road speed will affect the speedo/odometer reading,BUT,the simplest/cheapest way of reducing revs is to fit bigger wheels/ tyres.say fit 15" instead of 13"with the same profile tyres.this will reduce your revs by about 500 @75mph.but the speedo will read 70mph.also acceleration times will be considerably reduced.and put an extra strain on the clutch/engine.
alternatively,swop the whole drivetrain to diesel,75mph=3500.

2009 Hyundai accent in 5th gear the RPM is 4000 is this normal? My speed is 115 Klm an hour


No, it is not. You should be around 2500 rpm at 115 Kilometers an hour. Even if you were in 4th it should only be around 3000 rpm. At 115 MPH you would be near the 4000 RPM. Your either running on 3 cylinders or your transmission is in trouble and needs repair.

Is it normal for my 91 miata reads 3900 rpms going 70mph?


It is pretty close, but doing the math....
3900 rpms 5th gear .814 diff gear 4.3 tire rpm = 1114
stock 91 tire size is 185/60-14 circumference = 71.31 inches inches/min=79457 mi/min=1.254 mi/hr=75.23
Completely stock, 3900 rpm gives you 75 mph. not the 70 you were claiming, but you could have smaller then stock tires (one inch less of diameter gives you 72 mph at 3900).
Hope this helps, Lars

2008 Hyundai Accent problems


first, what is the condition and level of the tranny fluid ? compare with new one please. if not the same by far in clour or odor, get the transmission filter and oil changed. while the pan is off, look in it to see if there is metal in it. if so, your torque converter may need to be change. a little greyish residue at the bottom is normal but if the magnet is full and also the, you got a problem. you may need to rebuild it or replace it.

I would say very good possiblity to be the cv shaft or cv shafts but you might try a tune up first change out the spark plugs and spark plug wires if that hasn't been done in 30,000-40,000 miles.If you have the cv axle or axles changed you will have to have it realigned again.

When im driving in 5th gear the RPM's seem high around 3500 is this normal?


I, also, thought this was high at first. After some research, I found that this car runs in that range at about 75 mph. So, yes. That is normal.

I just wanted to know the optimal shifting points to do 70mph comfortably. Should the car be at 2500-3000 rpm in 5th gear at 60-65 mph? I typically shift at or around 3k rpm in every gear, and the car...


How many gears does your car have? One of my cars has to do a little over 3000rpm to maintain 70-75 in 5th gear. My other car has to do about 3000rpm to maintain 65-70 in 5th gear.

It all depends on the number of gears your car has and the gearing ratio. The second car I have is geared more optimally for city driving and gets better fuel economy going slower than fast highway speeds.

Having driven several rental cars too I would say anywhere between 2500 to 3000 is reasonable for the average car. If you are driving a vehicle like say a porsche, bmw or audi they may have more gears and may be at a lower rpm at 70mph than your car.

4000 rpm at 70 miles per hour


You should have another gear "5th" at 70mph your tacho should read about 2500 rpm.
Make sure you don't need to depress something or push the gear stick against a spring to select 5th.
Is there a gear layout on top of the gearstick knob, do you have 5th gear on there?
The highest gear ratio is a little over 1 to 1 so at 70 mph you would expect 3500 rpm, but, it is a little over 1 to 1 so it will be closer to 2500rpm.
