Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

2 Answers

Engine miss? My tiburon has a miss or a bucking when first releasing the clutch and in 1st and 2nd gears at lower rpm. I just had the timing belt replaced and no check engine lights are present. It is as if the engine is not getting fuel or air then it smooths out and runs fine. Any idea how I should troubleshoot this?

An engine miss should mean that one or more pistons are not firing. Maybe you just need new spark plugs and/or spark plug wires. How long has it been since you changed them?
More than 60k miles?
If you don't fix it, it will get worse and your car will **** more gas.

2007 mustang gt have engine knock problem when going from 1st to 2nd gear at 5000 rpms?


5.000rpm's high revs and you run into problems with valve bounce ( hitting pistons) ,ring slap, gudgeon pin knock, big end noise and possible main bearing noise . You may also be getting a hydraulic lock in the hydraulic followers that is holding the valves open too long. Unless the engine has been specifically built for these rpm's any loose ,worn on unsuitable part will cause problems I am thinking that you have around 100.000 miles on the clock after 7 years and the motor is not young Ford V8 engines specifically built for a 500 klm race are limited to 5.500 rpms because they destroy the timing chain if driven over that speed .

2006 crown vic at 45-55mph vehicle is bucking,


When was the last time you had checked the spark plugs? My \'01 Grand Marquis had the same disease, which progressively got worse. Eventually it threw a code for a misfire. Pulled the plugs for a check and the electrodes were horribly eroded.

If you are going to do the job/check yourself, be careful as one bank of plugs is installed at a slight angle. I would also recommend that once you remove the boots, you use a shop vac (or vacuum in general) with a narrow attachment to suck out any debris from the well to avoid it from falling into the cylinder.

Since the new plugs (I also cleaned the boots and electrodes, and used dielectric grease on install) she is smooth as glass.

If the plugs are normal, you could check into the torque converter clutch (TCC), but normally the shaking would continue throughout the drive range and not only kick in at a particular RPM. Suggestion would be to put the car in 1st or 2nd on the gear select, and gradually increase speed until the engine is at about the same RPM as it would be for cruising 45-55 (a scan tool with live read will work to get RPMs). I tried this and got the same buck in 1st gear at about 13-15 mph and again in 2nd at about 25. It is not as herky jerky, but you will feel a little bucking. Another test I did to ensure the problem was in the plugs/ignition was leave the car in park, open the hood, and remove the plastic cover from the top of the engine. Using your hand, gently apply pressure to the throttle body opening it a bit. Before I replaced the plugs the engine was shuddering pretty bad as the engine RPMs increased.

Problems selecting 1st gear peugeot 106 1.1 zest


If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.

My 2004 audi s4 makes gronchy noise when i put it in to 2nd gear when cold whats causing it?


If I've understood your problem correctly.....when changing from 1st gear into second the box is giving a metal on metal crunching sound?
  • This would be the syncromesh ring which is not equalizing the speed correctly.
  • The problem usually happens when there is wear on the same part.
  • Check to make sure that the correct transmission fluid has been used in the box.
  • To alleviate the problem and delay the time when it will require attention, use the double de- clutch method of changing gears, especially when the transmission is cold.
  • The double de-clutch is carried out in the following way.
  1. When in gear and changing from 1st gear to 2nd, change into neutral and release the clutch and then depress again before selecting 2nd gear....It is not required to rev the engine in the neutral position when changing up....
  2. When changing down rev the engine when the shift lever is in neutral for each change.
You'll soon get the hang of it and stop the crunching sound, protecting the box at the same time....

The slave cylinder for your clutch has a valve in it, which keeps the clutch from engaging too quickly. The purpose is to keep you from just dumping the clutch and wreaking havoc on your transmission. If you're confident that you don't need that extra safety device in there, you can remove it, just google slave cylinder valve removal. It will give your clutch more of an aftermarket feel.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.

Either your clutch is getting bad, or you're shifting down too soon, and up too late. Try double clutching. Push in your clutch and push it into neutral. Release the clutch, fan the gas pedal, push the clutch again and shift into 1st. All this does is sychronize the speed of the transmission with the speed of the engine. There were, in the 60's, a lot of cars with the old "three on the tree" that you had to do this every time, and you get pretty good at it after a while.
