If it only overheats while stopped or when driving slowly then check to see if your radiator fan is coming on. If not check the radiator fan fuse, temperature switch, relay, and the fan motor itself.

If it is consuming radiator coolant or is blowing steam out of the tailpipe then consider a blown head gasket as your problem. The engine oil may or may not look milky in color if the head gasket is leaking.

did you install the thermostat pointing in the correct direction? Is the radiator cap in good shape? Check for correct coolant level. The radiator will continue to draw in coolant from the reservior for many heat cool cycles after it has been opened.

And lastly could the temp gauge be reading high? Possible temperature sensor.

I need to see a diagram of how to change a alternator belt in a 2003 accent hyundai


Do you have a digital camera? Take pictures of your engine bay,especially the belt routing and save them to your computer for later viewing.
Next push down on your belt with enough pressure to see which pulley arm moves.This is your tensioner,if you put a box end wrench on the bolt of that pulley you can push down on it and release the tension on the belt for removal.
Then look at your pictures as to how the belt was originally installed.You'll need to move that tensioner enough to replace the belt.After replacing the belt make sure it's on 100% before starting the engine.

2001 Hyundai Accent. Heating and stalls


If the water tends to keep going down then there has to be a leak somewhere. Try also looking at the hose coming from the overflow tank and see if the hose might be kinked. You might also be blowing antifreeze out the tailpipe. Take a look and if there is bluish white smoke then you have confirmed that theory,

AC works, Heater not working, 2003 Hyundai Accent.


Check the coolant level, do this with a cold engine. Or if you have recently used it. let it cool down for about 25 minutes before removing the radiator cap. if it is low, refill with coolant. If it does not, check your thermostat. Or better yet replace your thermostat. Be sure to get the right one . the same degrees as your old one. Just ask the teller to give you one for your engine size and car Model.And year.See where the radiator cap is. Then drain some coolant to where it will not spill from the radiator cap. Remove the hose nearest the radiator cap and you will get to the thermostat housing. Remove the housing and note how the thermostat is placed. Take of the thermostat housing and the old thermostat. Clean the housing and around the hole where the thermostat goes of any deposits. Get some grease and cover the new gasket with grease on the housing to hold it in place. replace the New thermostat and make sure it is flush with the engine and the housing. If it is off , you could break the housing upon tightening the housing.replace the hose and refill with coolant slowly to eliminate any air spaces.. Also check the coolant reservoir and fill it to the indicator line. Restart the car and chek for any leaks. Then check the heater after the engine heats up. If that does not do the job it could be the temperature sensor or the heater core.The heater core will take more time to check and clean or replace.

2002 Hyundai Accent Problem


first thing i need to know is did the timing belt break?
second is are you sure you aligned the timing marks and after the belt tensioner was tight you rechecked to make sure the timing stayed where you had it.
next step would be a compression check to if a valve was bent whenchanging the belt
i have seen this happen and this engine is an interferance engine.
later paul
